Our regional strategies in housing, transportation, and economic development improve the quality of life for Western Riverside County and San Diego residents.

Housing Strategy

The IRP Housing strategy focuses on addressing the jobs-housing imbalance in the two regions by providing more housing in employment-rich areas, and more employment opportunities in housing-rich areas.

The goals were to: (a) partner with regional stakeholders and local jurisdictions to develop pilot workforce housing project(s) in North San Diego County and (b) work to develop a preliminary Smart Growth Concept Map for select Southwest Riverside County cities.

• Help reduce the strain on the interregional transportation system by providing more affordable housing opportunities for employees who work in the San Diego region, particularly those who work in the North County area.

Core Themes:
• Identify smart growth areas (place types, target land uses, and potential locations) that can be developed near transit applicable to both regions, and along transportation corridors, particularly along I-15.
• Identify specific financial resources, incentives, and programs needed to construct workforce housing at selected sites.
