Stop thinking short term, think long term as the developers are attempting to make the west valley the new East Bay East area. The idea of the Central Valley shipping things out will be short term; the long term will be Central Valley shipping items in, as we outsource our industry and productivity and thus will not be able to support ourselves in the near future.
I really don't think the developers or supervisors are thinking short term for this; they would not be attempting to spend this kind of money for a short-term return.
