Conover Commons Cottages, Redmond WA – Developed by The Cottage Company, Designed by Ross Chapin.

Seattle has one of the highest percentages of single-family houses of any major city in the US and over 134,000 new residents are expected to move to the Seattle metro area by 2016. Can our single-family neighborhoods absorb any of these new residents, or should they?  This panel discussion will focus on backyard cottages, cottage housing, multi-unit lots, and new development in Seattle’s single-family neighborhoods. Related topics include legislative progress, successful development strategies for building in single-family neighborhoods, areas for future growth, and the reaction from homeowners to new development.  Chances are you live in single-family neighborhood and these issue affect your home, so join us for a panel discussion on Neighborhood Density and find out why adding new residential units in existing single-family neighborhoods is such a contentious topic.
