a strong town naturally blends housing styles at many different price points. 

This can be accomplished with several tactics:

  • Encourage small-scale incremental development to empower local residents and increase community wealth.
  • Adjust zoning laws to allow for more choices within the marketplace.
  • Remove distortions in the federal mortgage market which favor the creation of single-family homes while discouraging any other housing style. (We explored this concept in depth in a series of articles in February 2016.)
