A unique housing subdivision has caught the attention of many in Big Valley.
"From the very beginning we've been calling it the Tiny Homes subdivision. When you say you're in Big Valley, it seems to turn into Big Valley Tiny Homes, which is something I think we will be quite proud of once this gets successfully rolling," stated Michelle White, CAO for the Village of Big Valley.
"From what I understand this will be unique in the Province of Alberta. It's something that's created for Tiny Homes with an area floor space of 650 (square) feet or less and it will be something that is listed in our Municipal land use bylaw as an accepted residence."
Currently there is no price listed for what a tiny home would cost, but it's in the works.
"We need to do a cost accounting with the engineers for servicing. Once we know what the servicing costs of the 22 lot subdivision will be, we will be basing the lot prices on a cost recovery," White outlined.
The Big Valley Tiny Homes subdivision is looking at being fully completed for the 2018 season, but White expressed that if they continue working at this rate they could be completed by fall of 2017.
If someone is interested in finding more information on this subdivision, how can they do so?
"We don't have this information listed on the website at this point. We want to wait until at least the first reading of the bylaw at the March 23 council meeting. We do have the information packages here, so if a person was to call or email I can send the information as it currently is for their review," added White.
