DENVER (AP) — A tiny home village in Denver’s RiNo Arts district has moved about 200 feet (61 meters) from its original location.
KMGH-TV reported Saturday that the Beloved Community Village had to move because of a relocation requirement set forth by the city.
At least 15 people were forced from their 8-by-12-foot homes on New Year’s Day to abide by the relocation requirement.
It cost $25,000 to move the village — a price tag that was picked up by community members and the city itself.
