The author offers no evidence to back his claim that city government is at fault for the 26 percent Hacienda business park vacancy rate. It is just conjecture on his part and I suppose many will believe it simply because they see it written here.

It could be true, however, so why not interview owners and investors and develop some in-depth information regarding reasons the vacancy rate status and trends. If city government's "process" plays into it, then there is some information out there that would corroborate the author's theory. Perhaps the stakeholders will tell him he is right.

Lastly, Staples Ranch is hardly a comparative example to use as a model of what would happen to re-development proposals of an existing business park with extensive existing infrastructure. How are they substantially similar?
