Hamilton moves ahead with plan to offer tiny homes for the homeless

The city is investigating the feasibility of putting tiny homes down laneways

The city is pushing ahead with a plan to build tiny houses for the homeless or nearly so, and to put those houses down some of its lower city laneways.

Hamilton city council's planning committee voted Tuesday to investigate building homes no larger than 425 square feet — about the size of three parking spaces — to ease the city's affordable housing crisis.

Such programs have worked in other cities, said Matthew Green, councillor for Ward 3 in the lower city. In Detroit and upstate New York, for example, tiny houses have proven a cost-effective way to house people.

They won't solve the problem, Green said. But this will "allow us to explore them as part of the housing mix" at a time when tiny houses and downsizing are growing trends.
