Trick-or-treaters can vote on spookiest tiny house at Hope Village
Trick-or-treaters can get candy and vote on the spookiest tiny house on Halloween.
Hope Village, a housing development of tiny homes for formerly homeless residents, is inviting visitors to drop by from 2 to 6 p.m. Thursday. The village is located at 728 W. McAndrews Road, Medford.
Kids and adults can enjoy candy, snacks and hot beverages as they go from tiny house to tiny house.
The public will get to choose the winner of the village’s tiny house decorating competition.
Operated by the nonprofit group Rogue Retreat, Hope Village is celebrating the second anniversary of its launch.
In October 2017, the first 20 residents celebrated “key day” after the village passed Medford building and fire inspections and earned a certificate of occupancy.
The village now has 30 units that offer shelter to people while they work to get into more permanent housing. This weekend, the Medford Rogue Rotary Club will work with residents of Hope Village to install solar panels for all 30 of the community’s tiny house units.
In August, mayors from 40 communities around Oregon toured the village, which offers a path to housing. The state is struggling with an affordability crisis marked by high housing costs and low rental availability.
