City of Santa Rosa seeks public input to increase housing production

SANTA ROSA, Calif. (KRON) — San Rosa officials are seeking the public’s input in its planning to increase housing around the city.

The city is kicking off its engagement efforts for its “Missing Middle Housing Initiative” with an online community meeting on April 19. The city says the initiative and this first of two meetings are intended to facilitate the creation of policies and standards that would increase “house-scale infill” housing throughout the city.

Missing middle housing is defined as house-size buildings with multiple units—such as converted homes, duplexes, fourplexes, and townhomes— generally located in walkable neighborhoods.
