Webinar: Missing Middle Housing: Thinking Big and Building Small to Respond to Today’s Housing Crisis

A Maryland Department of Planning and the Smart Growth Network event
Tuesday, July 28, 2020 - 1:00pm EDT

Across the country, people are looking for housing options that shape affordable, walkable, and desirable neighborhoods.

Daniel Parolek inspired a new movement for housing choice in 2010 when he coined the term “Missing Middle Housing,” a transformative concept that highlights a way to provide more housing and housing choices in sustainable, walkable places. This housing type includes a range of house-scale building with multiple units compatible in scale and form with detached single-family homes.

The Maryland Department of Planning and the Smart Growth Network hosted this webinar on July 28, 2020, when Parolek, author of the book, Missing Middle Housing, illustrated how these housing types, when designed well, can be a powerful tool to create the communities that people both want and can afford.
