"Ventura County has been hailed as a leader in urban planning, but a new study by Reason Public Policy Institute reveals several problems created by the implementation of growth management laws in the county. The new report finds that numerous cities in Ventura County will run out of housing capacity by 2008, more than 10 years ahead of the planning schedule. Furthermore, Smart Growth in Action: Housing Capacity and Development in Ventura County, California, shows the number of planned homes in Ventura County is far below forecasted demand and the county will need at least 30,000 additional residential units by 2020."
