A rendering of what the tiny home community could look like.

The Silt (Colo.) Board of Trustees has approved a rezoning request from Camp Colorado River, owner of the Glenwood Springs West/Colorado River Kampgrounds of America (KOA) Holiday, to transform unused adjacent land into a 70-unit tiny home community, according to the Post Independent.

As partner Alan Danson explains, the project is still in the very early stages. But, he added how excited the Silt town board was of the project and said the next step will be to go before the Silt Planning and Zoning Commission for approval on the actual design of the homes.

“We understand that housing is in really short supply and this provides another option that might be attractive,” said Silt Town Administrator Jeff Layman of the project. “We are hoping it will find a nitch and be an exciting development for our community.”

Layman said the board has been interested in tiny homes. At its Dec. 10 meeting, the Silt board voted unanimously in favor of the property rezone, moving the project to the design and pre-marketing phase.

The 70-unit planned residential community, called “River Run,” is believed to be the largest planned tiny home community in Colorado.
