SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A billionaire-backed proposal to build an eco-friendly California city from scratch is off to a bumpy start to put their idea before voters this November.

California Forever has had to revise its initiative twice, and the delays have shortened the time available to collect 13,000 valid signatures. A spokesperson for the campaign says it is confident of making the Nov. 5 ballot. Critics say that while California desperately needs housing, the environmentally right way is to build on existing city lands.
