A potential new major city between Rio Vista and FairfieldAfter many months of reporters trying to find out who was buying up a large chunk of rural Solano County, we now know that an investor group, Flannery, which now calls itself Forever California, is behind the silent and mostly secret project.SOLANO COUNTY, Calif. - After many months of reporters trying to find out who was buying up a large chunk of rural Solano Count...
After many months of reporters trying to find out who was buying up a large chunk of rural Solano County, we now know that an investor group, Flannery, which now calls itself Forever California, is behind the silent and mostly secret project.
SOLANO COUNTY, Calif. - After many months of reporters trying to find out who was buying up a large chunk of rural Solano County, we now know that an investor group, Flannery, which now calls itself Forever California, is behind the silent and mostly secret project.
On its California Forever website, the developers say this is "a chance for a new community, good-paying local jobs, solar farms, and open space."
A chance is not a guarantee, nor are good paying jobs, and the area is already almost nothing but open space which would be partially covered by solar arrays.
Though the California Forever website shows many attractive and alluring colorful drawings, they are just that; drawings.
The plan appears to call for a city or cities with tens of thousands of homes located well within earshot of Travis Air Force Base, a busy, 24/7 home to the military's biggest cargo and aerial refueling aircraft; especially loud on take off.
"I don't want them to destroy the wonderful lifestyle we have here and add to an already existing traffic problem in the surrounding area," said Rio Vista resident Tina Arnold about the news.
Highway 12, the main drag between Rio Vista and Fairfield that runs through 50,000 acres plus development, would be wholly inadequate as is.
"Yes, money talks…they have deep, deep pockets," said Arnold.
They will need it to put in the vast infrastructure needed for such a project in such a rural area, most especially roads and transit.
Certain other infrastructure, beyond roads, parks, and services, such as hospitals and better shopping could benefit the area, but at a price.
To some, the price seems very high.
"A lot of people do work in the Bay Area. I worked in the Bay Area before I retired. And if you see the traffic out there today because they're working on the bridge, you can't even get out of Rio Vista right now," said resident Sandy Bowen.
"The whole area would not be a small community anymore. It would be a thriving metropolis," said resident Jeanne Cradduck.
Forever California did not respond to several interviews and information requests.

VENICE-MAR VISTA, CA — The first tropical storm to hit the county since 1939 pummeled Los Angeles over the weekend, breaking rainfall total records and straining utility systems.
Venice and Mar Vista saw nearly nonstop rain over the weekend as Tropical Storm Hilary moved into Southern California, making way for drier skies ahead according to the National Weather Service.
Over the last three days, Venice got a total of 3.02 inches of rain according to NWS. Nearby at Ballona Creek, 3.65 inches of rainfall was recorded.
Most of LA County’s coastline saw between two and four inches of rain over the last three days. The San Fernando Valley saw between three to four inches of rain while downtown LA saw just under three inches.
Mount Wilson in the San Gabriel Mountains logged the most amount of rainfall in the last three days according to NWS with 8.56 inches fallen.
NWS reported that virtually all daily rainfall records were broken on Sunday. Even before the day concluded, NWS officials said August rainfall records were set in Los Angeles and Long Beach.
This recent storm brought a variety of dramatic weather conditions throughout the county, including a magnitude 5.1 earthquake that rattled much of LA. Residents of Catalina Island were also advised to evacuate as a precaution and were provided shelter in Long Beach, according to the city's Mayor Rex Richardson.
Many cities in the county experienced outages, with thousands of customers having been without power as systems were tested.
Following the downpour, Los Angeles County beaches were put under a health advisory as high levels of bacteria are expected for at least 72 hours after significant rainfall.
“Bacteria levels can increase significantly during and after rainstorms, as contaminants within the runoff enters the ocean,” according to the LA County Department of Public Health. “Elevated bacteria levels in ocean water may cause illness, especially in children and the elderly.”
