I am not a water expert but have lived in the desert for over 50 years. The valley is not in an active management aria AMA like most of the denser populated arias of the state. The AZ DWR does not have much to say up here. Those AMA areas have to work with water credits for agriculture

Rhodes had to prove 100-year supply to satisfy the department of Real Estate as they control subdivisions. If he is using his own wells he may be left alone and only would be governed by the reasonable use.

It may be viable but probably not. There are still allot of places to grow produce with cheap water. It is difficult to compete on price with those places. One would guess Rhodes is playing water chess here. The question is what would he want. Does anyone recall his water agreement with the state for the Golf Course he wants to build? I am not sure of the details.

Was best left in his hands? I don't think that happened. I thought he was the only bidder. If you bid $1.00 more they would have put it in your hands. It was worth most to him because they did not have claim to his other land around the portion in the BK

I have no animosity towards that man. This is a forum where we debate Rhodes development. If we are lucky we live long enough to see who is right and who is wrong. Those who said his GV development would go bust and those who lent him money would regret it were correct. We will see in another 5 years if golden valley becomes green valley.

You have a very aggressive style of debate. Do you really sit and laugh at your computer or is that used to try and belittle an argument without facts or reason.
That's funny, you answering for Sean or just so insecure about yourself that you have to come on here under different identities?
Suggestion, if you seriously want to debate then pick a handle for yourself and stick to it. Then educate yourself on the facts, form an opinion and let's debate it.
For your info, he had approximately 1250 acres that fell under the bankruptcy and there was no bidding or auction. They sold that land back to him as part of the bankruptcy. Take some time and go back through the earlier pages. There are links to the proceedings and news articles. It is all documented.

I recall they were going to initially allow him to build a 9 hole coarse and the 2nd half would not be allowed until enough homes were built and sold that could provide enough recycled waste water as to handle 100% of the watering needs.

Sorry guys, this was in the kingman daily minor. I don't think that the pravada thing is going to happen anytime soon, like never.
KINGMAN - Parts of Rhodes Homes properties in Mohave County, including more than 1,300 acres of the 5,700-acre master planned community Pravada, will hit the auction block in September.
Colliers International of Nevada has put out a request for bids on the Pravada property, four model homes, five unfinished homes and nine additional parcels within five miles of the Pravada community.
According to information from Colliers, a minimum bid on the property is $1.4 million, which includes the more than $1.2 million purchase price and a $200,000 minimum overbid increment. Each bidder must also show that they can post a replacement bond for the project and show that they already have financing in place to purchase the property.

In court papers, Colliers International Senior Vice President Michael Stuart said that he marketed the properties to 8,500 parties and contacted 3,500 brokers in the region, plus 4,400 brokers with his firm.
And after marketing and contacting brokers they determined it was best left in his hands. They did not want to split up the property and sell individually and since he already owned the majority of property in the area with a plan set in place to develop it, it best served ithem to sell the property intact to him.

You have lost all credibility.

It was best served because no one else would bid. The trustee only tries to get the best return for the debtors. Do you see why some of your prior posts have been wrong?

Everyone else does. I know I am three of them.

This is all old news

I have yet to see a post by Desert-rat that was not less the 99% correct

Decon-- whats your point ??

At some point Rhodes had a lean on the center core
of Pravada-- iT ended up in court

and he bought back-- the core -- as it was- IT had a value of 0---

I have $ 25,000 truck--

I will sell you 1/3 of it for 300 bucks
Do we have a deal ???
O- by the way-- you get back 1/3

What I would like to know today

Can any of you experts recommend a realtor in GV to list my parcels? Have two parcels, 2.35, one on Chemehuevi& Ute and 2.35 on Chemehuevi & Flint.
Appreciate a referral to an aggressive RE Co.
Thanks.

Looks like they are doing something at the entrance now. They've scrapped the ground clean on the southwest corner of Aztec and Shinarump where the pipes use to lay.
Probably their next section of farm or it could be something more sinister. I've read many people accuse Rhodes on this site and in the comments section to Kingman Daily Miner news stories of creating dust devils. Well as I was passing by there was this massive one spinning in the middle of this new clearing and the last time I was passing through I saw 5 in a row pass through that same section. Then it got me thinking that these people might be on to something! Even though I didn't see the devil himself or any of his minions at work, this could be their new environmental testing lab where they are working with leading edge technology to control the weather or at least create massive dust devils to torment all those whiners in the valley! LOL

Yes a cow can eat your flowers in AZ if you do not fence them out. If you hit cow on the road with your car and kill it you must pay the rancher the value of the cow.

If someone cuts your fence in AZ that is a crime. If after that crime you decide to shoot a cow in your yard you have also committed a crime.

Now you know.

That sucks.
The manufacturing plant would have provided a lot of jobs for this area.
