The Bay Area’s housing crisis and growing aging population have led many cities to begin re-considering their options for additional housing stock, and the types of housing we may need in the next decade and a half. Several local cities have or are currently considering updates to their second unit ordinances. Whether you call them granny flats, nanny suites or lilypads, second units offer current residents an aging in place option by providing supplemental income or caretaker housing and they can also serve as housing options for smaller households and ranges of income.
However, second units are just one housing option that cities can consider among the broad range of missing middle housing options. Daniel Parolek's award winning professional work and research is helping communities across the country work toward meeting the current and future housing needs of their residents through thoughtful, contextual, sustainable, and above all, highly livable approaches.
