Join City staff, District Council representatives, and residents at a virtual engagement session to provide input for Phase 2 of the 1-4 Unit Housing Study. This study is evaluating the potential to create more smaller, neighborhood-scale housing types that are missing across the city.

Smaller, neighborhood-scale housing types are a key component to maintaining current housing needs and meeting future demand. Examples include:

  • Duplexes, triplexes and fourplexes
  • Townhomes
  • Cluster/cottage homes

Phase 2 of the study is focused on evaluating additional zoning flexibility to support greater housing diversity in more places as well as facilitating more types of single-family homes, such as cottage homes clustered around a common courtyard or greenspace, townhomes, and accessory dwelling units (ADUs).

Join us for a virtual engagement session to learn more about the 1-4 Unit Housing Study and share your ideas on neighborhood-scale housing types and potential opportunities for the City to add more housing. Each session is open to everyone, but some discussion topics may become focused on an area of the city.
