Missing Middle Housing: Beyond Second Units

DanParolek.jpg

On Thurs Nov 5, 2015 6-7:30p, we heard from Daniel Parolek, a nationally recognized thought leader in architecture, design, and urban planning, who specializes in creating livable, sustainable communities. Daniel conceived the term Missing Middle Housing to describe the range of multi-unit or clustered housing types compatible in scale with single-family homes that help meet the growing demand for compact, convenient, walkable lifestyles.

 If you missed the live presentation, we now have video available below, and slides will be forthcoming! 

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.

    I want Palo Alto to reflect values of cooperation as well as innovation. Can the two combine?...

    Alas I will be out of town for this — will there be a video recording or some other way for us to catch up? Important topic!
