ASHLAND, Ore. -- The Ashland Tiny House Group is meeting with the city of Ashland to get a tiny village approved for the area. Right now the city is investigating the idea of allowing the construction of 15 tiny homes that will be specifically built to help low-income mothers and their children get off the streets.

The group says its focus for the project is transitional housing - meaning it is willing to provide resources to get families into a more permanent solution. The project would include the village along with a community center where families could find a kitchen and utilities. 

In order to help get the community on board, it hosted a speaker from Eugene, Dan Bryant, who is the creator of two tiny villages. He spoke in Ashland on Sunday but will be hosting another event tonight in Medford. It's called, "Building Tiny House Villages: Stories of Success" and it will take place at St. Mark's Episcopal Church on 42 W 6th Street.
