The San Diego County Apartment Association has long stated there is a need for additional housing units in our region and throughout the state, which have been the topic of several articles shared in recent SDCAA communications. Our industry partners, such as the Building Industry Association of San Diego, have been focused on achieving this very goal. SDCAA also is a member of the Housing You Matters coalition which advocates for regulatory changes that will help decrease the cost of construction. We also strongly urge communities to embrace multifamily housing and add the density of more units where it is appropriate. The reality, as population increases because of the growing birthrate, changes in demographics, and land available for development shrinks, the region must add more multifamily housing units.
Thank you for your continued membership and support of the rental housing industry. We will keep you informed on this topic and others that may impact your business.
