Delays Ahead for Orange County's Ambitious Park
More than $100 million went to pay for developing plans and running a public process.
Sean Emery writes, "Great Park Chairman Larry Agran acknowledged this week that the project's construction phase is running several years behind expectations, but denied that the project as a whole has suffered.
"I don't know where the idea materialized out there that somehow we would have the great metropolitan park developed full scale within a matter of a few years," Agran said. "Nobody ever promised that, and certainly I believe we have been quite clear that you build out a park of this magnitude in typically a 15- or 20-year process.""
