Walsenburg, Colorado changes Code to Accept Tiny Houses
This small town, with a population of 3,000 has made zoning changes to city code to allow tiny houses. Now tiny houses are permitted (even welcomed), as long as they are connected to city water and sewer – and are on permanent foundations. One tiny home building company has already recieved permission to establish a subdivision, however the city is quick to make it clear – a tiny house can be built on any residential lots within the city limits, not just within that subdivision.
The town itself is fairly small, providing incoming residents ample opportunity to pave their own way. Besides a nearby state park, Walsenburg boasts a golf course, water park and a mining museum. Although Walsenburg is near several larger cities for an easy work commute, the town itself boasts a large wind farm and a newly approved marijuana greenhouse.
