MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - A proposed tiny-house project for the homeless in Medford has stalled as organizers can’t find a location that doesn’t upset potential neighbors.

The Medford Mail Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2aG1Ctp ) that supporters of the project had been preparing to build Hope Village at a city-owned property but opposition from neighboring businesses slowed progress.

The city is looking at more than 190 properties it owns in hopes of finding a location for the dozen or so tiny houses what wouldn’t generate opposition from neighbors.

The City Council is set to consider Hope Village’s location at a meeting on Thursday.
