Doors open @ 5:30 PM

How will we solve the puzzle of Bend’s missing middle housing market—those duplexes, triplexes, townhomes and courtyard apartments that fill the gap between single-family homes and multi-story apartment buildings? Dan Parolek, the nation's premier expert on these diverse housing types, will break down the problem and describe tangible solutions to Bend’s current and future growth challenges. Audience members will also give direct feedback to the Bend Collaborative Housing Workgroup—led by Bend 2030, Brooks Resources, Central Oregon Association of REALTORS ©, Central Oregon Builders Association, Housing Works and the American Institute of Architects Southwestern Oregon Chapter—that is aiming to recommend a slate of policy tools and incentives to jump start Bend’s middle housing market.
