APPI Webinar - How Calgary Found its Missing Middle: Expanding Housing Choice in Established Communities

Is it more difficult to gain approvals in your jurisdiction for an inner city rowhouse than a new edge community? Are conversations with citizens on parking supply getting you down when you’re trying to solve a housing crisis? Are you frustrated with your municipality’s land use bylaw that can’t keep up with contemporary design practices? If so, this is the webinar for you! Planners from CivicWorks will discuss their collaborative effort with The City of Calgary that brought about Land Use Bylaw reform to enable the development of Missing Middle Housing, unlocking more affordable and equitable housing opportunities in some of Calgary’s best connected and amenity-rich communities. This presentation will build on one given at the 2023 CIP Navigation Conference, providing updates on uptake since implementation and a citywide rezoning effort that responds to Federal Housing initiatives.


Presented by:

Dave White, RPP, MCIP is the Principal and Founder of CivicWorks, a Calgary-based studio known for design integrity and great city building at a range of scales. He is a leading industry voice for Calgary’s Missing Middle.

Zach Hoefs, RPP, MCIP is a Senior Urban Planner with the CivicWorks studio who has shepherded dozens of Missing Middle projects through approvals, including a number of Direct Control Districts that contributed to bylaw sustainment.
