Supervisor Joel Anderson, in whose East County district the project is located, said the warehouse is badly needed in a community where 21.7% live below the poverty line.

"We're talking about the potential of 400 jobs, maybe as many as 600 jobs," he said. "When we talk about equity, this is a prime example."

Anderson added that the project initially was going to be 400,000 acres, and its size has been reduced considerably.

"We know (delivery) trucks are gonna roll, whether they roll locally or across the county," he said in response to critics of the project.
