Unlocking the Potential of Missing Middle Housing

Digital Discourse

Small-scale housing such as ADUs and apartment buildings with 10 or fewer units have largely been prohibited in the United States. Recent changes to laws in California and other jurisdictions have begun to acknowledge the importance of such housing in addressing the housing crisis. However, even with zoning changes, significant financing, permitting, and other barriers to construction of missing middle housing remain. Join us to learn from a recent Terner Center for Housing Innovation report that looks at the steps California will need to take to reduce these barriers.
