Housing Production Lags
Five years into the 30-year Plan Bay Area planning period, the San Francisco Bay Area remains woefully behind when it comes to providing adequate housing for its new workers. As of November 2015, the Bay Area had permitted 1 new housing unit for every 6.3 new jobs. Under Plan Bay Area projections, the region needs to add 1 housing unit for every 1.7 new jobs in order to keep pace with employment growth.
