City councilor fighting proposal for ‘tiny home village’ in his district

News

Albuquerque City Councilor Don Harris says he doesn’t want the county’s tiny home village in his district. 

Three of the county’s proposed sites for the project fall within Harris’ district — the far southeast Heights and the Foothills. 

Harris says after listening to neighbor’s concerns, he thinks the village, which would provide temporary housing for homeless people, should go somewhere else. 

“I think we do have a moral obligation to try to find solutions, some solutions for the people in crisis…these homeless people. But we have to make sure that we do it right,” City Councilor Don Harris said. 

The county is considering a total of six potential sites. 

It says they were chosen based on factors like access to public transportation, and the size of the land and cost.
