Area residents will get a chance to tour a Tiny Home during the Tri-State Housing Summit sponsored by NECAC.
The event is scheduled for June 8 at Culver-Stockton College in Canton. The Tiny Home will be available for tours on the parking lot of Canton City Hall.
Tiny Homes are houses of around 600 square feet or less that can be moved or built on a foundation. They are cheaper to buy and less expensive to maintain. NECAC and its partners hope to develop a Tiny Homes program in Northeast Missouri.
Other topics to be addressed during the summit include an update on NECAC’s Aspire Partnership Prison Homes program and its Healthy Homes Initiative.
The event is an outgrowth of the Tri-State Development Summit, a group formed after the Great Flood of 1993. Ten regional conferences have been held since 1996 in an effort to discuss common issues and solutions in 35 Missouri, Illinois and Iowa counties. Housing is one of the steering committees that meets and reports to the larger group.
