Here’s your Santa Cruz County housing update! Did you know that Santa Cruz County needs to add 13,000 new housing units by 2031?!

Ben caught up with Santa Cruz’s Principal Planner, Matt VanHua, and got the inside scoop on the housing plan.

We also talked about how this plan could impact the lifestyle downtown and, of course, what the impact would be on real estate.

Also: there are talks of the Santa Cruz Warriors building a permanent arena in the downtown area! The current arena is temporary, but there are big plans in the works for a more permanent home court.

Lots of exciting stuff in the next several years! What do you think about all of these updates?
