Prairie Queen: A Missing Middle Neighborhood 

Moderator: Shannon Harner, Executive Director of NIFA

Speakers: Mark Stursma, Planning Director, City of Papillion and David Black, Mayor, City of Papillion  

In this week’s webinar, our guest speakers tell the story of their award winning “Missing Middle Neighborhood” located in Papillion, Nebraska. This unique mixed used development combines a variety of multifamily housing at various price points with commercial space in a more traditional downtown feel. Mark and David go into detail on how this unusual development came to the suburbs, the roadblocks they encountered along the way, and the future of missing middle developments in their city.
