Housing Construction in Goshen Lags Population Growth | Gochen

GOSHEN — Housing construction in Goshen needs to ramp up to keep up with the kind of population growth seen over the past decade, the town’s deputy mayor said.

Deputy Mayor Mark Brinson addressed the housing issue at the annual joint session of the Goshen City Council and School Board on Monday. The meeting is an opportunity for both councils to update on upcoming projects as well as challenges affecting the school and the town.
