Residents block San Jose ‘tiny home’ solution for homelessness

Sep 6, 2017

A year ago, San Jose's homeless advocates were excited by city-approved plans to build the Bay Area’s first "tiny home" villages for homeless people.

Yet now that the city has to pick locations for these proposed villages, objections from nearby residents have become a major stumbling block.

People said some really nasty [anti-homeless] things, everything you can imagine. Some people in the crowd spontaneously started chanting "build a wall."
