A Focus on Building Better Housing

At Build Small Live Large 2019, the only national housing summit of its kind, the line-up of speakers includes innovators working to change regulations, address infill needs, create smaller footprint communities, design more accessible spaces, and lead the way towards more affordable homes.
 
Presenters will share what’s working in their cities, while promoting the best strategies to regulate, design, build, and finance smaller homes and “Missing Middle” housing options.

Session Spotlight

Meeting in the Middle – Effective Zoning Strategies for Missing Middle Housing

Hear code update stories from people with hands-on experience creating zoning changes. This panel represents diverse sizes and geographic areas across Cascadia. It covers how each speaker approached zoning for ADUs, plexes, cottage clusters, small multifamily housing, and other innovative housing types.
 
Learn how to address hot-button issues such as density, off-street parking requirements, and “neighborhood compatibility” in your region.
 
The discussion will include: 
  • the content of the code updates;
  • the process of updating the code through public engagement with stakeholder groups, developers, neighborhood activists, and elected officials;
  • integrating insights into zoning revisions;
  • and addressing common concerns.
