We are working through the first small phase of the permits. Almost done! This will only be for the creation of the staging and build locations for the core of the gardens. The need to build this out in stages means we will be building the main creative works in a semi-secret location and in isolation. They are so astonishing, with the incredible light shows and music, that we want them completed out of public view. Then, we can reveal them and the associated media and public interest will help move us further along. Strategy, strategy. The gardens will be built slowly in this way. In logical and manageable pieces, evoking public passions and desire to see them completed.
If and when other parties join in financially, something I do not expect until we have a core proof of concept and the beginnings done with a clear set of achievable stepping stones lined up, we will accelerate the project.
It'll be slow, taking 5 years or so at this rate, but it is going to happen.
