The City approved Missing Middle November 5, 2018. Large Missing Middle housing can now be built in the colored (yellowish) areas on the map below. Olympians for Smart Development & Livable Neighborhoods just filed an appeal to ensure that the character and livability of Olympia is not the part that's “missing” from the Missing Middle.

How can you help?
We need your help funding legal efforts. One City strategy in this appeal is to make OSD&LN efforts as needlessly expensive as possible, hoping we will drop out simply because we can't afford to go on. Luckily, we have one of the top land-use from Seattle, who can handle these maneuvers and work efficiently.
We have also cut costs by doing lots of research and grunt-work ourselves, so that our lawyer can focus on legal issues.
