Can Arlington Solve Missing Middle Housing on its Own?

Arlington County recently launched a Missing Middle Housing Study to look into options for and the impacts of adding “missing middle” housing in Arlington. “Missing middle” is a term for a range of housing types between single-family homes and apartment buildings. The County’s study will look into adding missing middle housing in Arlington and much of the discussion here has focused on how adding missing middle housing here will affect Arlington. But the housing market is regional, cutting across county and state lines, and so it’s important to look more broadly at how changes here and across the region will impact housing in Arlington and throughout Greater Washington.

 

The Arlington Committee of 100 will explore these regional patterns at its May program. Our speakers are:

- Jon Huntley, PhD, Senior Economist, Wharton School

- Michael A. Spotts, President, Neighborhood Fundamentals, LLC

- Aakash Thakkar, Executive Vice President, EYA, LLC

The Arlington Committee of 100 will also conduct its annual meeting of members at the beginning of the May 12th program. A notice was emailed to the most recent membership roster. It is also available here.

Our panelists are:
