It is wonderful to read about this development, which could not come at a better time.

So, do all the numerous hearings and permits that we subject developers to in Mountain View have an important purpose or do they just slow down development? If it's the former, shouldn't this development go through the same reviews? If it's the latter, shouldn't we get rid of all these hearings and permits we require inside Mountain View city limits?

Mike, this project is on Federal land, so Mtn View gets little say, and the MV process doesnt apply. If you'll re-read the article, you'll see that construction is a long way off, so clearly there are plenty of regulatory hurdles to clear on this, though the process will look a lot different than a city entitlement project.
