Victorville has been bleeding its own tax base with this project for far too long. Now they are willing to sell to Communist Investor's and give them part of the American Dream. I say NO! Sounds to me that they are willing to sell their Souls.
Well over half the Warehosing has been empty. Victorville entered a Contract with DR Pepper Snapple to build a Western Region Bottling Facility in the Desert of a Drought worn California. It is estimated that it will use 1/2 a million to one million gallons a day.
I have read recently that Cental California Farmers have'nt enough water for Crops.
Dr Peper Snapple wil bring only 200 jobs to a Valley that has a Drought of Employment.
Meanwhile the Citizen has been burdened with the cost of a 35 MIllion wastewater treatment facility exculsive for SCLA Projects.
We also have been burdened with the Construction of failed Power Plants, and other roads to nowhere!
Since when does Government have the right to railroad it's Citizens? One Power project even included Immeninet Domain. Taking from your own citizens to profit private developers.
Sign me as Tired of this Crap!

We're a socialist country now and this is what happens in a socialist country. This aint the America our grandparents fought for in WWII and they would turn over in their graves if they knew this is how it is now.
Water is a huge deal in the I.E., do people ever stop to think about the possibility of it running out? The entier area will become worth zero dollars and millions will be forced to move east (very far east, like Illinois east) where there is water. Lake Mead, the Colorado River, Sierra snowpack...all running lower every year. I wouldn't invest a dime in the Inland Empire considering it may not even exist in 20 years.

Little cities, big dreams. The base never should have been offered to them. And there is another old base just down the road in San Bernardino, and one more in Moreno Valley. There never has been nor will there ever be the demand for the millions of square feet of business space in the Victorville/Adelanto area. There needs to be jobs, real ones, ones with a salary you can afford a house, or a family. Just building houses doesn't do it. yes, there will be small cites that become ghost towns, it will happen. The ones without adequate transportation systems (public included) will just wither and become, maybe senior housing areas, like Hemet used to be. It would be nice if all of these probably conservative city councilmembers really understood "free market" demand and would stop screwing it all up with "redevelopment Increment" taxes.

Don't worry, Victorville is screwing everyone with the Red Light cameras and now the want to place more.
VV is now a national job and getting worse.
Please Commies, bomb VV so we can start over.

They said the same thing about the chinese coming to San Bernardino and that airlines would be clammering to use to the airport. It's not viable to use Victorville yet. The County and State have not spent to shore up the infrastructure. There's a nice Korean Restaurant opened near the San Bernardino Airport but sadly no Chinese Companies.
