County supports tiny houses for the homeless!

The City of LA is currently writing language for movable tiny houses (also known as tiny houses on wheels) to be included in their ADU ordinance. We can help this pass by contacting our council members to let them know of our support for the inclusion of movable tiny houses as ADUs. Take a moment to write in today!
