In the first six months of 2022, the City of Greensboro has approved more homes for development than in all of 2021, according to the planning department’s mid-year growth and development figures.
- The number of acres annexed and rezoned in Greensboro is nearly equal to the number from 2021.
- There have been more housing units approved for development than there were in 2021.
- The 4,025 units (single- and multi-family) approved for development equates to homes for 9,500 people (based on average household size in Greensboro of 2.36).
“We continue to see strong growth in Greensboro with the first six months of 2022 exceeding all of 2021 in terms of annexations and rezonings for new housing,” says Sue Schwartz, director of the Planning Department. “Looking at the 18 months in total, we have expanded the City by nearly three square miles and rezoned for about 8,000 new residential units.”
