Regional Growth Forecasts

Forecasting and analyzing population, housing and employment growth is a key early step in the transportation planning process. SLOCOG periodically updates the regional growth forecast about every three or four years to provide an updated picture of anticipated growth in the region.

The 2040 Regional Growth Forecast is the most recently adopted growth forecast, and it includes estimates for population, housing and employment for the five SLOCOG subregions, the seven cities, and many county communities and rural areas of the unincorporated area.

Below you will find three long-range regional growth forecast reports for the San Luis Obispo region:
