Small step in the right direction. No one is complaining about retail development - it is all this office space!

Retail mostly serves MV residents. Office space instead brings in lots more people to the area, with more traffic, and increases demand for and price of housing.

Much better to focus on FIRST on housing, then on retail, and freeze all office space development for any large companies. Offices for small biz / local professionals is ok. Office space for Google, LinkedIn, etc - NO WAY!
