Test Middle Housing

House Bill 2001 requires cities over 25,000 in population to allow the development of “middle housing” – including duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, townhomes and cottage clusters – within all residential zones in order to address three goals: options, supply, and diversity.

A City Council Public Hearing is scheduled for May 17 to consider draft Community Development Code amendments proposed by the City that comply with HB 2001 and are consistent with the community’s sense of place, neighborhood character, and livability.
