El Torro was the worse thing the County could get rid of. Why don't we say what really happened. Residents of the county got lied to. There will be no "Great Park". It will be a Great Housing Development. The residents would have said anything to get that airport out of there back yard. Noone will ever stop these lies, the houses will continue to go up until all the land is gone. The good news is like most parks in Orange County, they will be designed for the local residents only. In ten years we will have to move houses in and around John Wayne aiport to expand our only airport. Wont be long before residents around aiports outside of Orange County get sick of us moving them so we can have a bigger aiport in there backyard. I am sure a out of county use fee of $300.00 per ticket at LAX would get our residents interested in flying out of John Wayne.

Amazing that a company bids on government land.
The bidding process has requirements to meet.
And all of it gets tossed by the winning bidders?

How many would have bid on the land if they knew that the local govt could be bought so easily?

Where is the park. Where are the golf courses?
Where are the green spaces? All part of the purchase agreements, all sold out.

I thought Jerry Brown was a crook. Nothing compared to the people associated with this
