Plantation-style cottages for homeless?

Plantation house Dude

I’m very pleased to see that I’m not the only one who thinks that simple plantation-style cottages could provide safe and decent housing for people who really need and want to turn their lives around in the midst of this severe housing crunch.

A private entrepreneur has started talks with labor unions and government officials to build a village of such dwellings on state land near Keehi Lagoon, according to this article.

It all sounds preliminary at this point, but it could be a great idea and provide a state-wide example of the kind of reasonable, cooperative effort that has been so absent for so long.

It’s certainly note-worthy that government officials didn’t come up with this common-sense proposal.  But at least they now seem to be listening.  That’s a good start.
