Around 50 `tiny homes` for homeless veterans planned at city-owned site on Milwaukee`s northwest side

A plan to develop around 50 "tiny homes" as housing for homeless veterans is moving forward on Milwaukee`s northwest side.

The project is planned for a city-owned site at North 60th Street and West Green Tree Road, according to a Wednesday announcement from the Department of City Development.

Each of the tiny homes will be around 240 square feet. Up to 48 of these houses could eventually be constructed on the site, according to the department.

The proposal is based on a Racine development: the James A. Peterson Veterans Village.
