Commute 50 miles ...... that would be about the same as all those folk coming 
in from Maricopa
or San Tan valley.

Not that far for ex LA or SF dwellers either.


looks like AZ will need International Dark Sky to be in contact with 
"Gatesvile" to assure

that they keep the dark sky dark.

Gates' Belmont Partners investment firm just dropped $80 million to jump start 
development of a 'smart' community in Arizona.

Since the development will be located two-thirds of the way to Phoenix from 
Hovatter Road, its light will likely blend right in with the existing metro 
Phoenix light dome to the east.  I'd be more concerned if we observed closer 
in, like just west of the White Tanks.  In that case, the new light dome from 
Belmont will be to your west, where it used to be dark.

Here's the location map.  I wonder how smart it is to add tens of thousands of 
people commuting 50 miles to their jobs in Phoenix.
