The City of Asheville is beginning a housing study that will seek to identify barriers that negatively impact the production of housing supply in Asheville. Named the Missing Middle Housing study, the year-long effort will employ guidance from Opticos Design, Inc, a California-based consulting firm, to gather data, interview stakeholders and the public, and develop recommendations that will help the city to prioritize next steps to better align regulations with city goals. c
