Letter: Tiny homes for the homeless

We have a 1 percent homeless population in Aspen. Shame on us. Shame on us for giving $20,000 to an art museum with a $20 million endowment and not fully funding our homeless shelter.

Wisconsin, Alabama and Oregon are spearheading a movement for tiny homes for the homeless. Costs per 99-square-foot home vary from $100 to $10,000. In this town, that’s doable. Why don’t we do it?
