CHICO, Calif. - The Chico City Council rejected an appeal for the Simplicity Village project.

The tiny house project aims to provide homeless and vulnerable seniors with affordable homes.

A location for the design was placed on Notre Dame Boulevard and Morrow Lane in South Chico in July of 2018.

Simplicity Village will house homeless people who are 55 and older, this includes people who have disabilities.

A neighboring property owner put forward the request saying the project did not classify as a "temporary emergency facility".

The project will move forward.
