Occupy Madison has a 2 step plan for the property at 1901 Aberg Ave.
PHASE ONE – TEMPORARY USE
For the winter of 2020-2021 Occupy Madison plans to place 28 “tinier” (60 sq ft) Conestoga Style huts on the property. These huts are cheaper and faster to building than the “tiny” homes (98 sq ft) we have at 304 N. 3rd St. These huts would be occupied primarily by people currently sleeping in tents in parks and other areas around Madison
For this phase we would also renovate the inside of the building to include showers, laundry and a non-commercial kitchen for resident use.
PHASE TWO – PERMANENT USE
Phase 2 would involve getting a planned development zoning approval from the city of Madison. The second phase would have fewer houses and we would transition to our larger “tiny” houses. With the second phase we would also determine what additional uses may go with the property (coffee shop, retail store, bakery, etc.)
