Good Reference – 2015 Orange County Workforce Housing Scorecard

As a good reference, this last weekend, I found this document as produced by the Orange County Business Council.

See … “2015 Orange County Workforce Housing Scorecard” … re: http://www.ocbc.org

OCBC does a good job to explain many social and economic issues impacting today’s business environment that can support the provision of more workforce housing.

Here is an introductory quote from that document:

“With the 2015 edition of the Workforce Housing Scorecard, OCBC analyzes current and projected future trends in order to understand where workforce housing in Orange County is headed and how it will impact demographic, economic, and business competitiveness factors. … This report seeks to answer three key questions:

1. How are current trends in Orange County and its cities impacting workforce housing?

2. What will be the state of workforce housing in 2020 and 2040?

3. What actions or policies need to be enacted to increase the supply, availability and affordability of workforce housing?

For questions or comments about the report, please contact:
