what is it exactly? ...
In this section, we outline some guiding principles, defining components, and key benefits of the village model. From there, we establish two primary types of villages—Transitional and Affordable—and offer a description of each to help in choosing a path that's right for your community. Finally, we cover the critical roles and responsibilities in setting out to plan and build a village. This all provides an overview to what we are talking about before getting into how to do it.
see the process in action ...
Much can be learned from the successes and challenges of existing examples. In this section we highlight key resources from two communities developed by SquareOne — Opportunity Village and Emerald Village — which exemplify the two types of villages described in the Choosing a Path section above. We've also compiled a Case Study Matrix to provide a side-by-side comparison of some existing tiny house villages, and a Village Passport for a closer look at some of the strategies they deployed to make it happen.
