A proposed enclave of tiny homes is moving down the yellow brick road after an outsized reaction from Okotoks residents. Okotoks town council voted in favour of a new site for a planned tiny homes eco-village, which came under fire last month for its original location at Kinsmen Park in the middle of the town south of Calgary.

The wee community, dubbed Sagebrush Social Praxis Society, will now look at setting up stakes on a portion of municipally owned land in D’Arcy Ranch, on the western edge the 30,000-strong municipality. Dawn Smith, Okotoks’ environment and sustainability co-ordinator, said given the backlash from those living near Kinsmen Park, the town realized it needed to shift gears and find a less controversial location.
