Workshop:  SB 458 – Expanding Homeownership Through “Missing Middle Housing” Legislation 

Date:  Thursday, Oct. 7

Time:  3:00 pm – 4:00 pm PDT (6:00 pm – 7:00 pm EDT)

Missing Middle Housing describes a range of house-scale buildings with multiple units – duplex, triplex, or more – compatible in scale and form with detached single-family homes. SB 458, passed in the 2021 legislative session, streamlines the permitting process and allows land division to separate dwelling units for new middle housing in cities across the state. Join this panel discussion to learn more about the parameters of what will be allowed for such land divisions and when the changes will go into effect. The learning process leading to passage is a great lesson in working closely with local jurisdictions that will be responsible for implementation and finding solutions that will work for them. While the legislation expands a new homeownership opportunity, how can we help ensure they’ll be accessible for low-income working families?
