Housing Supply

I have been a planner in San Diego for over 30 years and I don't believe that we have met our housing needs more than 10% of those years; we certainly have lagged over the past three decades. There are a multitude of reasons. To a certain extent, we have become the Santa Barbara of the south. There are winners and losers when housing supply is both naturally and artificially constrained. One very significant constraint is the lack of political leadership. Some signs seem to indicate that the body politic has recently recognized the significance of the issue and some elected officials throughout the region appear to be taking on the challenge. Kudos to them; we should wish them the best in this endeavor.
