Event Description:
Join the Council's Henry County Advisory Committee with TSW Founding Principle Bill Tunnell for a discussion about housing and the "Missing Middle".

Atlanta, like many other regions around the country, has gotten really good at building a limited range of residential “product types” - conventional detached home subdivisions, townhomes, and apartments.  But, in order to sustainably accommodate the 2 million additional residents expected in the next 20 years, we need to look at other “middle-density” building types – many of which used to be quite common in our region – as a way to make more efficient use of land, create more compact, walkable places, and continue to deliver quality housing that is affordable.  The missing middle, when properly designed, can also be an important way for communities to accommodate growth that is compatible with their existing character.  We need to consider making our zoning codes more flexible to allow and encourage these types.  We will look at examples, from around the Atlanta region, of how communities are meeting this challenge and, in the process, creating highly desirable places.
