Folsom area - what made Bidwell St build up so much since the 90s?

Basically I lived in the Orangevale/Folsom area from 1990-1995 and I've been having lots of fun with Google Earth recently, looking up stuff around town and comparing it with how I remember it back then (the time slider is great). I'm just super nostalgic and interested in things like this. Anyway it seems like Bidwell changed the most from when I lived there. I recall when you got past the Raley's shopping center it kinda got desolate (Google's old images refreshed my memory on this) all the way out to the freeway, I-50. Like especially when it parallels that railroad track... it was all fields and maybe a few houses. Now it's like ALL built up. I know that happens everywhere over time regardless, but for people that have been living in the area since... I'm just curious what made it happen so quick and to that extent? It looks like in '98 they were starting to build it up, and by 02 it was really taking off (though still not as much as it looks like today). That's a prime area, how come it was like middle of nowhere when I was a kid (did the city or people who lived further out protest it for years or something)?

Folsom is a nice area and was very popular in the housing boom since the 90's. Also it is an area that the local governments did not restrict development as much as they did in other areas of the county. Opportunity meets demand and you get a pretty massive build-up.
