Submitted by News Desk on Sun, 03/09/2008 - 10:00pm
According to projections, by the year 2030 the Bay Area's population of 7.2 million will have grown to roughly 8.7 million residents; an additional 1.5 million people who will need somewhere to live. If we continue our current pattern of housing development, then these new residents will be living on what is now farmland in the San Joaquin Valley. They will be spending three to four hours a day in traffic getting to and from their jobs in the urban core areas of Alameda, Santa Clara and San Francisco counties.
