And likely because they didn't have Walt. While Walt was able to pull off the acquisition and permits for building in that area and the Government certainly had foresight about dollars it would bring in, I sincerely doubt Walt could over-come certain laws of our land with his day dream city.

Even if he got it off the ground initially it likely would not have withstood any test of time. As Walt was dreaming in the 60's the Country changed so much. Likely he was just ignoring the times of the 60's and believing it would just fade away and just kept up the day dreams.
