EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Officials say construction on Eugene’s second tiny house community for low-income residents could start as soon as this summer.

The Register-Guard reports ( ) that documents filed with the city’s planning department show that the nonprofit SquareOne Villages is looking to build the 22-dwelling community on a 1-acre lot. The group’s executive director, Dan Bryant, says construction will likely start sometime between July and September.

He says the start date will depend on whether the nonprofit can raise the remaining $40,000 to $50,000 it needs to fully develop the community.

Plans for the project include homes that are between 160 and 288 square feet as well as a garden, an office and parking space.

Eugene’s first tiny house community includes 29 tiny units spread across 2.6 acres of city land.
