Arlington County to Begin Missing Middle Housing Study in 2020

The County Manager yesterday reviewed with the County Board a framework for the Missing Middle Housing Study, which is anticipated to begin in 2020. The study is under the Housing Arlington umbrella and will explore if and how missing middle housing could help address Arlington’s limited housing supply and inadequate housing choices.

Missing middle housing types—such as duplexes and triplexes—are currently restricted in many neighborhoods by Arlington’s land use policy and Zoning Ordinance. Barriers to building them make it difficult to increase the County’s housing supply and provide more choices at a broader range of prices.
