Parolek created the concept of Missing Middle Housing in 2011 to define the gap in housing between single family homes and larger condo buildings and to provide resources to enable communities to meet the growing demand for walkable urban living.

This discussion includes:

  • Defining Missing Middle Housing
  • Sharing best practices
  • Dispelling Missing Middle myths
  • Identifying a shared terminology

Presented in partnership with AARP Nebraska, NIFA and the League of Nebraska Municipalities.

Real estate agents, developers, property managers, local governments, housing authorities, chambers of commerce, architects, homebuilders, planning firms and community members will all be interested in this dynamic and informative webinar.
