Tiny home village for people experiencing homelessness moving out of RiNo

The tiny home village, which serves the homeless population, will move to Globeville.

DENVER — Denver's tiny home village on Monday began the move to its new location in Globeville.

The Colorado Village Collaborative built the village in 2017 to serve as a community for those experiencing homelessness. Those who live in the village share a community restroom and kitchen area. They also govern the village.  

It had been operating under a temporary use permit at 38th Avenue and Blake Street in Denver's River North (RiNo) Art District, but needs to move by May 15 because developers are using that land for an apartment complex. 

At a Denver City Council meeting last month, the councilors unanimously approved a new location at 4400 Pearl St. in Globeville, a neighborhood in north Denver.

The land is owned by the city and will be leased to the Colorado Village Collaborative for $10 per year.

The lease is good for one year and can be renewed twice, which means the tiny homes village could stay at the new site for up to three years.
