Housing Update

Wednesday, Dec. 21, 2022


Dear Community Member,


Happy Holidays from Planning and Economic Development! To celebrate this time of year, Planning and the Development Services Center got together for a Missing Middle Gingerbread House Challenge.

Missing Middle Housing is a range of house-scale buildings with multiple units. This can include duplexes, tri- and fourplexes, townhomes, and single-family homes with accessory dwelling units. Not only is Missing Middle Housing compatible with established neighborhoods, but it also fits perfectly into a gingerbread winter wonderland!

Keep your eye out for this festive "Reel" video on social media!
