Housing Series Workshop 2
Getting to Missing Middle
Getting to Missing Middle: Strategies within local government control to advance infill housing.
This workshop will showcase existing missing middle housing types in our region and discuss why they aren’t feasible now. This workshop emphasized the barriers to infill housing with practical solutions local governments can take, including examples from small communities across the country.
The workshop also showcased the planning team at the City of Portland who just concluded a five-year process to adopt their Residential Infill Project. The effort creates more housing choices, establishes clear and fair rules for narrow lot development, and requires smaller houses that better fit existing neighborhoods.
