By 2065, Utah County will add one million people to its population, 85% from internal growth. With this growth, we have already seen serious problems with housing affordability in the county and across the state. Our state’s current home prices are 20% higher than comparable cities such as Boise, Las Vegas and Phoenix. These are some of our top competitors in attracting new jobs and businesses. We support efforts to address housing affordability in Utah County that respect.
