September 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
As California grapples with the need for affordable housing and housing in general, infill projects take a front row seat. How can communities encourage higher density housing that is affordable to middle class workers without infringing on many communities’ desire to limit multifamily housing projects? Tony Perez (Opticos Design) is a Missing Middle Housing expert working with communities to establish and translate policy direction into clear and implementable development standards. Missing Middle Housing is a range of smaller units in multi-unit or clustered housing types, compatible in form and scale with single-family homes that help meet the growing demand for walkable urban living, respond to shifting household demographics and meet the need for more housing choices with a range of price points.
