Corona, CA: Upscale all-inclusive development finally sees homes

Years ago a developer and architect envisioned plans to connect an upscale retail development in South Corona through lakes and bamboo walkways to housing, creating an all-inclusive mini city that few residents would need to leave for necessities.

But after years of falling home prices and a deflated construction market, bankruptcy and struggling retail sales, that vision was put on hold, until this month. Dirt is moving and grading is underway beside Interstate 15 adjacent to the Dos Lagos retail center for a 93 live-work project, project architect Norberto Nardis said.

Christopher Barton Tatro, 40, of Corona, was killed in a Riverside car accident, which police report, involved a hit-and-run driver. According to a news article in The Press-Enterprise, the fatal hit-and-run accident occurred on the 91 Freeway, near Monroe Street, during the early morning hours of December 17, 2011.

Officials say Tatro was operating the controls of the hydraulic lift on a tow truck when a tan sedan, possibly a beige late-1990s Saturn, struck the left side of the tow truck. The driver of the vehicle did not stop, and was last seen exiting the freeway at Adams Street. Tatro suffered massive injuries to his legs and torso and succumbed to his injuries a couple of hours later.
