The hollowing out of the middle class continues as California continues on its way to becoming a socialist workers paradise.
As for the development being a pipe dream, I work in this industry and trust me its not a pipe dream, unfortunately. This is all about the initial phase of about 12,000 acres. The plan actually entitles 35,000 units with an estimated population of about 100,000 and includes all the required infrastructure, utility, commercial and institutional elements. The backers include home builders Lennar and TriPointe and the money of the Tisch family (Vornado Realty and Loews) - they know how to it. Think Irvine, Santa Clarita and currently 14,000 homes and support uses under development at Rancho Mission Viejo in San Juan Capistrano - all former large ranches. The building industry organizations trade unions are also backing it. The project will be litigated (and lose) and a one this size will build out over 20 years or more, but that will be 20 years of constant activity, building and selling.
Duckie, they will get the water where they always get it - the county and state will authorize sucking the area dry taking the water from those evil nasty farmers who waste it growing food for everyone.
