Centennial is facing declining home affordability and a mismatch between the types of housing that residents need and what currently exists. With detached single-family units comprising 77% of the community’s housing, younger households are being priced out of the market while aging residents struggle to find homes that meet their lifestyle needs. Middle housing, which includes a variety of home types ranging from ADUs to mixed-use buildings, offers a likely solution. This report examines the benefits of middle housing, local conditions that affect implementation, and specific actions the City can take to encourage its development.
