They revised to a new goal (69k units to accommodate 760k by 2030) last year, but at this point growth is running faster than the new target. I'd prefer a much more aggressive goal that would put us on pace to reach peak population mid-next decade, because more people living here is good, but that requires more pro-development policy than the city has been willing to do.So I wonder if the city still thinks that housing 700,000 by 2030 is the right target. Boston has grown significantly faster than the city's planning estimates anticipated. I think we all know that the population is already above 700,000, 11 months after this census estimate, so what does that mean for housing plans?
