Savannah group hopes tiny houses can help homeless veterans

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - A group in Savannah is moving forward with plans to develop a community of tiny houses for homeless veterans.

The Savannah Morning News reports (http://bit.ly/2bdM3u8) that the city council recently approved a zoning change allowing the Chatham-Savannah Authority for the Homeless to move forward with the plans.

The newspaper reports that the community, dubbed the Cove at Dundee, is expected to eventually include up to about 70 of the tiny homes.

The 128-square-foot houses would be on a 3-acre site east of downtown Savannah.

Cindy Kelley, the authority's executive director, said the request to rezone the property in the Blackshear Park neighborhood, where a homeless camp already exists, was approved in July by the local planning commission.
