SANDAG Preliminary Growth Forecast Stresses Need for More Housing

SANDAG presented their Regional Growth Forecast to the Chamber’s Public Policy Committee on July 10th and the Healthcare Committee on July 11th. There is expected to be continued population growth in the San Diego region, particularly in the elderly population. This growing older population will have a significant impact on the housing market, as this portion of the population often has smaller household sizes. Additionally, the presentation stressed the importance of the housing needed to accommodate our regional growth, which is one of the Chamber’s priorities.
