    Hello, as the city decides to issue building permits, please consider the size, type, and expected price range of the development proposal. As I mentioned in a previous post, there are so many of the same 3 bedroom, 2 bath houses going up and no smaller housing units being built. The smaller houses that are out there are older and are generally sold quickly. As other people have noted in this thread, a more diverse portfolio of houses would benefit the diverse population of Fort Collins.

    Require price diverse housing development. Offer incentives.

      I agree with Fred with the caveat of not too much incentive. They want to build and develop developer/builder should dedicate at least 25% of the development to 30% lower cost housing.

    Provide more "Missing Middle Housing" options. Description from cnu.org website:
    Missing Middle is a range of multi-unit or clustered housing types compatible in scale with single-family homes that help meet the growing demand for walkable urban living. These types provide diverse housing options along a spectrum of affordability, including duplexes, fourplexes, and bungalow courts, to support walkable communities, locally-serving retail, and public transportation options. Missing Middle Housing provides a solution to the mismatch between the available U.S. housing stock and shifting demographics combined with the growing demand for walkability.
