Seventy-four percent of voters said that Mojave would get sidewalks before either XCOR or Virgin Galactic flew their vehicles above the Karman line at 100 km. Only 26 percent of voters expended the opposite result.
The majority is probably correct here. Barring any significant delays, work is expected to begin on sidewalks for downtown Mojave toward the end of 2016. It’s not clear how long it will take to complete, but the work is unlikely to stretch out very long.
Meanwhile, XCOR is still building the Lynx Mark I, which cannot get above the Karman line. And Virgin Galactic is building the second SpaceShipTwo, which might or might not be able to reach that altitude.
