The 2020 Housing Summit is back and in a virtual three-part series where we will explore policies, practices and potential solutions to address our housing crisis.
- Demystifying the Missing Middle
- New Solutions to Foundational Challenges | August 11
- Bringing it Home | September 10
Our first Housing Summit session will provide attendees an opportunity to dive into ‘missing middle’ housing as a response to state mandates and unattainable prices. Experts in housing research, innovation, state policy and fair housing will discuss actions we can take now to ensure a future of attainable housing.
Speakers will share insight and opine on:
- What ‘missing middle’ housing looks like, and why it matters
- The difference between density and crowding and how that impacts public health
- How building more densely can foster a better quality of life, increase racial equity, and build community character
- The state policy ecosystem we are planning, building and buying in
- Common myths and harmful fallacies that come up in housing conversations
- The role of Accessory Dwelling Units and ‘Tiny Houses’
Following the moderated conversation, attendees will have the opportunity for Q&A.
