Question: Can San Diego County local governments do more to boost housing production, even beyond what San Diego city is contemplating?
Bob’s Answer: No
The slow pace of housing construction has squeezed the market but Mayor Faulconer and our City Council have put forth a bipartisan plan that includes incentives to boost construction of low-income and middle-class housing. Further, the plan is designed to speed up the review process to streamline development, direct funding toward affordable housing and encourage growth in transit-friendly areas. This is a great start that will stimulate granny flats and other affordable housing.
