Maine is feeling the housing crunch with less than 30 days of housing inventory on the market, driving up prices to unsustainable levels. In order to protect the parts of Maine we all love most — our open fields, forests, farms, long views, and wild areas — we are going to need to quickly make it easier to develop and redevelop in our village, town, and city centers. Dan Parolek, planner, developer, architect, and author of Missing Middle Housing holds the key to overcoming many of the challenges that have prevented housing development in the hearts of our communities. The answer is in the smaller multi-family building types that form the fabric of our communities and that continue to be a key part of our affordable housing stock in Maine.
