Eben Fodor – Middle Housing?
A presentation and conversation around housing, zoning, neighborhoods and potential big changes to all three looming on the horizon. While the goal of providing a growing population with more housing choices and more affordable options is widely accepted, there is concern that the idea of increasing density in the areas of single family lots throughout the city might fail to provide increased affordability and at the same time negatively impact the character of low density neighborhoods.

Eric Brown and Rene Kane – Neighborhood Planning Guidelines
