The Missing Middle 10/13/16


2016 Thomas P. Leckey Forum

Finding the Missing Middle:
Expanding Middle-Income Housing Options

Is it time to focus on how Arlington’s housing market works for its middle-income population? What designs, financial tools, and regulatory reforms could help us better serve downsizing seniors, young families, newcomers to the community experiencing sticker shock . . .

Join us at the Clarendon Ballroom Thursday October 13, 9 am to 12:15 pm. Daniel Parolek (Opticos Design) will define the “missing middle” and we’ll hear from panelists on the planning/zoning and financial considerations needed to make these housing options more feasible.
