"Coyote is beginning to attract national attention from planners and architects because of its proposed scale -- 25,000 homes and 50,000 jobs on around 4,000 acres -- and the challenge of getting more than 100 landowners, some with large holdings, to buy into a financing plan for a new-urban community. (These plans typically involve only a few major property owners.)

Skeptics will say that there have been other initiatives to start developing Coyote since the early 1980s, and they all fizzled. There's no guarantee this one will be any different."
