We have all heard of the Bermuda Triangle, but how many of you have heard of the Golden Triangle.

It is roughly the region in between Phoenix, Las Vegas and eastern LA metro area/Palms Springs. Part our own metro area is expected to experience rapid growth into Mojave county the center of this triangle being near Kingman AZ. Once the bridge opens south of the Hoover Damn, Arizona is going to pop up with many new suburbs......

just FYI

The issue is water. In this area the issue is always water. Nice land, good soil, pretty views good weather. Immaterial. Where you going to get your water.

The only reason Coyote Springs makes any sense is they have water.

Now where does the water come from in the "golden triangle"?

Note that there are thousands of square miles of wonderous country along the California coast that are not developed and likely will never be.

Why? No water. And you can't over pump the aquifer as is routinely done in NV because salt water will intrude.

Solve the water riddle and most of us could live in coastal CA.

True, at one point desalinization might be the only left option.

I think it highly doubtful for coastal CA. It is practically impossible inland.

The only hope for the area is that CA agriculture water comes into play . Then all things are possible.

Not so fast. The bridge will help but a road can only carry as much traffic as the weakest link. The new bridge will have 2 lanes in each direction but will bottle neck right back into one lane in each direction on both sides of the border. Until Boulder City stops fighting the bypass that whole Hoover Dam project will just be another boondoggle.

And since federal monies have shrunk for Nevada road projects, that project is more years away then you can chase with a stick.

We are still the closest thing to all of that. Have you seen the areas around where you are talking? Nothing there. Oh Wait, I think Kingman did get an In N Out. But really, it is going to take awhile.

The closest mall to Kingman, Golden Shores, and Bullhead is still Vegas. So they will be spending their money here. Which is good for us.

It is not a true mall. People that live down there generally come out here.
