Utah, Idaho are building homes faster than any other state — but is it enough?

BOISE — Even as it struggles to shelter its rapidly growing population, Idaho built new housing units at a faster pace than all but one other state, according to new data released by the U.S. Census Bureau on Thursday.

Between July 1, 2016, and July 1, 2017, Idaho was the second fastest-growing state in the nation in terms of housing construction, with an increase of 1.7 percent in the number of single family houses, condominiums, apartments and other units.

Only neighboring Utah — where the number of housing units increased by 2.1 percent in the same period — grew faster. And in the seven years since the last census, Idaho was No. 4 in terms of housing unit growth, as the nation built itself out of the Great Recession. The state’s housing stock grew by 8.1 percent between April 1, 2010, and July 1, 2017, according to the new federal data, lagging behind only North Dakota, Utah and Texas.

I believe Boise is called the fastest growing city currently but it isn't that big to begin with. Economic growth is needed and then, on the other hand, it certainly can change a lot of things as cities grow bigger.
No foreigners telling us how to vote when our men fought and died for that right.

No phony 2nd amendment or otherwise, conservatives, vulgarizing others. Go back to your foreign land
