Missing Middle Housing Workshop - Joint ABR & PCZBA Special Meeting

Wednesday, October 30, 2019,  7:00pm

Earlier this year the Village participated in a design competition focused on Missing Middle Housing organized by The Congress for the New Urbanism (Illinois Chapter) – an association dedicated to understanding how the quality of the built environment impacts our daily lives, and applying this knowledge to build vibrant and healthy communities. The national chapter of CNU is recognized as a leading organization promoting walkable, mixed-use neighborhood development, sustainable communities, and healthier living conditions. 

The goal of the competition was to bring new ideas to real sites within Illinois cities in order to demonstrate how new infill housing --- missing middle housing --- can help meet the growing demand for medium scale housing in the greater Chicagoland urban and suburban neighborhoods. Lake Bluff Village leadership viewed this competition as good way for the Village to further our strategic plan objective to engage the entire community in an examination of what it takes to enjoy a variety of quality housing options

This workshop will:

  • Share the results of the competition; and
  • Start this conversation by hosting a panel discussion with local design professionals (Larry Booth, Robert Douglass, and Scott Streightiff).
Location Village Hall Board Room, 40 E. Center Ave.
