Elvis Summers, the man behind the project, spent months assembling the homes and distributing them to people on the street. The brightly colored boxes were equipped with solar powered lights and offered an alternative for people sleeping rough or in makeshift shelters on the streets of the city. The city of Los Angeles has impounded three of the tiny houses that have popped up near the freeways in recent months.
It had tagged seven more of the makeshift shelters for removal this week but, when the city Bureau of Sanitation showed up to take the structures Thursday, all seven were gone. Summers had already carted off the homes to storage, after the city announced it planned to eventually destroy any of the structures it impounded. He said he delivered some of the tiny homes to private land where the residents can continue to live in them. All of the structures tagged for removal by the city were located on bridges over the freeway in the Ninth District of South Los Angeles, and removed at the request of City Councilman Curren Price.
The homes, which are about the size of a parking spot and come equipped with lights, windows and doors that lock, are designed to offer a safe space for some of the city’s tens of thousands of homeless residents.
