There is a desperate need in the South County for affordable multifamily, residential units. Nipomo and other communities are building a bunch of rural homes. The area needs higher density in Oceano and Nipomo. The current build-out for Nipomo is at 23,000 population and Oceano at 8,700 population. The build-out includes a bunch of rural housing developments.
I propose these communities focus on higherdensity housing that would require less water and be more sustainable.
With higher-density housing, we can allow for more population in the area and give more people the opportunity to live here over living in Santa Maria.
