2017 Livability Solutions Forum:
The Future of Housing
How can we make more affordable, accessible, age-friendly housing available to more people of all ages, ability, income, and backgrounds in thriving and connected neighborhoods? Join us for an engaging morning of dialog on the future of housing, land use, and creating communities for all ages.
Learn about “Missing Middle Housing” from the man who coined the term — nationally known architect and urbanist Daniel Parolek of Opticos Design, Inc. Daniel will describe the full range of Missing Middle Housing options and trends in America’s residential landscape that often limit housing choice. Hear from local experts on the challenges and opportunities to meeting the region’s growing need for affordable, accessible, and age-friendly housing. Learn about critical housing policies under consideration at the Oregon legislature, including tenant protections and affordable housing development and preservation, homeownership and more.
Join the conversation and be part of the solution.
