In this paper, I propose that developers, housing advocates and public agencies within the San Diego Region team to create a ten-year plan to build 17,000 housing units per year, a goal of 170,000 housing units, to rebalance supply and demand. If accomplished, pricing would stabilize, young families could be housed and the “crisis” would be over.
To achieve this, we need to build slightly denser home subdivisions in the abundant “infill” locations throughout our region. The path to a solution includes setting policy goals to achieve these numbers; revising plans so that what we prescribe can actually be built; and changing state and local regulation so that housing may be built faster.
