Imagine Austin and AIA DesignVoice present: Walk the Talk #3 - Panel and Tour of Missing Middle in the Clarksville and Old West Austin neighborhoods. This is the third in a series of panels and tours of "missing middle" housing in neighborhoods across Austin.
Our panel features speakers who will touch on the history of Clarksville and Old West Austin, fair housing, historic preservation, and the role CodeNEXT and the new land development code has in advancing our city's growth through sustainable and, when appropriate, denser models of housing. We want to further educate our audience on the role missing middle housing typologies play in creating a more compact, connected, and affordable city. How does this tie into the broader scope of multi-modal transportation, income diversity, and preserving neighborhood character while also allowing for denser housing to help "fill the gap"?
