What comes to mind when you think about a tiny house? Downsizing, simple living, composting toilets? That show on HGTV (how do they fit the camera crew in there anyway)? Would you believe us if we told you that Mecklenburg County government has a tiny house of our own? The tiny house phenomenon is not a new one, but it’s definitely a novel idea in local government.
This holiday season we’re spotlighting some of the ways that Mecklenburg County and our partners give back to the community in a series called “What’s Your Gift?”
Members of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Youth Council are teaming up with Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department to help spread cheer this holiday season. Youth Council members are working with CMPD in organizing toy drives at 20 high schools across Mecklenburg County.
