“ ChangesBy 2050, the population is projected to reach about 400 million—a 28 percent increase. As a nation, we will have to build more than 30 million new housing units to accommodate this growth, and millions more to replace older housing units that are abandoned or torn down. We have to choose whether to build these new units in the same fragmented, segregated patterns as in past decades, or whether we will begin to move towards a society in which there is less socioeconomic differentiation between communities. The decisions we make or fail to make about metropolitan development will go a long way to determining whether all citizens will have access to quality housing, safe neighborhoods, economic opportunity, and quality education for their children.”
