Missing Middle Debate at Board Meeting — “More than 150 residents spoke Saturday at an Arlington County Board meeting on the Missing Middle housing zoning proposal… Several hours later, after hearing comments from the long list of speakers, Arlington County Board Chair Christian Dorsey announced that further consideration of the proposal would be held Tuesday night.” [Patch, WJLA]

More on Missing Middle — “Will missing middle housing units be affordable? It depends on what you mean by ‘affordable.’ When housing policy experts refer to ‘affordable housing’ or ‘committed affordable housing,’ they usually mean housing units that have received some kind of government subsidy in the development process to keep prices down… Missing middle units, in contrast, would be market-rate.” [DCist]
