ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -  Bernalillo County officials announced Thursday that there’s progress on a new tiny home village. The $2 million project aims to help get homeless people off the street.


The county released a list of six possible sites where 25 to 30 tiny homes would be built.

  • 8207 Central Avenue NW
  • 202-230 Louisiana Blvd. NE
  • 7600 Southern Avenue SE
  • 540 Paisano St. NE
  • 12900 Central Avenue SE
  • 12910 Central Avenue SE

County officials say the village would be gated. The homes would have heating and cooling, electricity, a bed, a desk and a chair.

Communal buildings would also include restrooms, a kitchen and training spaces.

There will be three community meetings to determine the final location for the village.

  • Thursday, August 9 at 6 p.m. at Manzano Mesa Multigenerational Center
  • Thursday, August 16 at 6 p.m. at the African American Performing Arts Center
  • Saturday, August 18 at 10 a.m. at the Patrick J. Baca Library
