On Wednesday, Oct. 20 at 7 p.m., join us for a virtual lecture and Q&A with Tony Perez of Opticos Design about the Missing Middle of the housing spectrum.
Tony Perez has spent the last 22 years helping communities improve their zoning codes with a focus on writing Form-Based Codes. An expert in translating policy direction into clear and implementable development standards, Tony works to enable the community’s vision by identifying and addressing barriers and writing responsive standards. A leader in advancing the implementation of Missing Middle Housing as well as the practice of Form-Based Codes, Tony is an energetic educator and enjoys working with public sector planners across the United States.
“Opticos principal Daniel Parolek coined the term Missing Middle Housing in 2010, transforming the national conversation about the need for more diverse housing choices at affordable prices. Since then, we’ve been driving a radical paradigm shift, urging architects, urban planners, and builders to fundamentally rethink the way they design, locate, regulate and develop homes. Americans want and need more diverse housing choices in walkable neighborhoods; homes that are attainable, sustainable and beautifully designed.”
RSVP to join the conversation about how we can bring the missing middle of housing here to Kamloops!
