The LA Homeless Blog dutifully rounds up the stats from the “Workforce Housing Scorecard for Los Angeles," a report recently released by the Los Angeles Business Council. Sobering. Despite all those unsold new housing developments sitting in far off suburbs, the report notes that between 1990-2007, L.A. County gained over 1.4 million people, but only added a little over 190,000 housing units. Additionally, the report says that 280,000 homes need to be constructed in L.A. County between 2006-2014 to keep up with population region growth. Via the blog: "How will L.A. build so many housing units? And how will it fund it?" [LA's Homeless Blog]
