I think this is a problem that's going to solve itself, frankly. This is tied to the other article that was recently posted about 50% of Bay Area residents wanting out. These ridiculous projections do not seem to be factoring how badly many people want to get out and find greener pastures.

Even if people DO leave the illegals pouring in,that they want,will need a place to live.

They deserve this problem in The Bay Area.

Oakland residents would have to wait until 2295 before enough housing is built for its projected 2040 population.

Or they could get government out of the housing business and let free enterprise work and then the population of 2040 would have adequate housing in...2040.

Send millions back home and we have plenty of housing.

The whole notion of a government agency setting “housing goals” for cities is preposterous. It smacks of top-down government diktat just like the Soviet Union.

The problem is indeed self correcting if left to markets to fix. Jobs and people are leaving because the Bay Area quality of life is in the crapper. Forcing cities and towns to add even more housing ruins life even more with people crammed into high density housing. Traffic is at a standstill everywhere. It often takes an hour to an hour and a half to drive 15 miles.

As far as the California coast is concerned, I’ll visit for the scenery, marvel at the garbage and leave while spending as little as possible. Those are my principles regarding this area.

What portion of the population IS leaving, what is the population coming in and what is the portion of the population that is growing. Depending on the answers, the problem is possibly without a solution (those that are leaving can afford to but leave majorities that want to leave and cannot afoord to, and newcomers are dominated by illegals, and population growth is tied to the lower ecnomic strata), or not as bad as it seems (middle and lower class remain stable, as high prices induce enough to leave, which in time lowers housing price demands and raises affordability, while population growth moderates).
