There seems to be a lot of controversy about development — either people think it’s too big for the community around it, or it should be mixed-use and isn’t, or it is helping only the rich, or there will be too many cars…

There is considered to be a conflict between the General Plan and zoning regulations and a City Hall too sympathetic to developers. A lot of land that was zoned for light industry is attracting the interest of developers looking to do retail or living.
