The Chester County Planning Commission will host the 2021 Housing Forum, “What’s our type? Missing Middle typologies to meet housing needs” on Thursday, November 18, 2021 from 4:00pm – 5:30pm virtually via Zoom and in-person at the Exton Library. Daniel Parolek coined the term Missing Middle Housing to describe multi-unit buildings at scale to existing areas within walkable neighborhoods. As described on their website, the word “Missing” is used to describe housing types that are generally not permitted to be built since the 1940’s in many places due to zoning restrictions. The word “Middle” was used as the housing exists on a spectrum between single family detached units and mid and high-rise apartment buildings. The forum will focus on local Missing Middle typologies and approaches for municipalities to encourage Missing Middle Housing.
This forum provides a great opportunity for those who are interested in learning more about the county’s housing planning activities, and is open to all municipal staff, partners, and anyone else that would like to attend.
