WASCO, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — When the housing bubble burst five years ago, many developments across Kern County ground to a halt.

Recently, a burst of construction activity in one local community has some wondering if things are starting to turn around.

Wasco City Manager Dan Allen said believes that building affordably priced homes is attracting interested families.

Commercial developments, such as a Walmart Supercenter slotted for construction in early 2013, is also helping to build excitement in the area.
