It's hard to believe that people live like this ... no grass, no trees or shrubs, no flowers ... just dry land with box-houses all in a row. It does not seem to be a privilege to live here.

As you can seefrom the homes in the front of this photo, the development is just being constructed, so this would've been sometme in 1962 (I believe these homes are in the First Phase of the tract). As did Sun City, AZ.,this development exceeded its model (done by Del E. Webb Construction Co.) and was extremely successful in its frst few years of developing. However, a builder's strike interrupted this success and led to Webb winding down construction here in the early 1970's (Presley Homes took over and built out the development in the 1980's). Much of the success here was because of the extremely competitive housing costs here and Webb living up to all he'd promised the Residents. In Sun Ciity's frst years, it was a truly lovely, beautiful, and innovative community, the model for many other 'Actve Senior' retrement communities which followed, all of which were Webb's visions and execution of them to fulfillment. Today living here is still an extreme bargain for the independent Retiree.
