Will the Great Park Ever be Great?

The LA Times reports that the Orange County Great Park Board just voted to pay almost three hundred thousand dollars to a consulting firm to come up with ideas on just how to fund the improvements slated for the park.  This despite having spent 72 million of 200 million they received from the Lennar Corp. in the form of developer’s fees. 

And what did we get for that 72 mil? A crappy orange balloon and a small portion of a “preview” of what we are supposed to get. 

My hopes, they are not high.

    Speaking to someone I know on the inside (sounds covert huh?), due to all the crap still in the ground from when it was a base, the great park probably won’t become a reality for another 10-20 years…..

    I just refer to it as the Great Weed Patch.

    My expectations have always been low.
