Walk The Talk #3 - Presentations

May 12, 2016 - 11:24 am

On Saturday May 7th, 2016, Imagine Austin and Austin American Institute of Architects designvoice committee partnered to present Walk the Talk - A tour and panel discussion on 'missing middle' housing in the Clarksville and Old West Austin neighborhoods. The goal was to present an educational and informative program that fostered open dialouge and visual cues on the benefits and opportunities of encouraging a variety of housing types, commonly referred to as 'missing middle' housing, in Austin. These housing types include duplexes, tri-plexes, four-plexes and accessory dwelling units.

We're sharing the presentations, and tour map, here in hopes of continuing to foster that open dialouge and to continue the conversation. This was the third of three events on missing middle. The presentations are in .pdf format, and require Adobe Acrobat to open.
