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

Generate missing middle housing by creating the change you want to see. This discussion will spotlight code update stories from four diverse jurisdictions of various sizes and geographies across Cascadia, and how they 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. Discussion will include the content of the code updates as well as the process of updating the code through public engagement with various stakeholder groups, developers, neighborhood activists, and elected officials to integrate insights into zoning revisions and address common concerns.
