Did he get it rezoned? I thought it was open range grazing? So now there is no right to build homes?

Troy, I believe most of the land is now zoned A-1. This rezoning could last an indefinite amount of time until Rhodes so chooses to make an adjustment. Rhodes owns well over 5,000 acres in Pravada and surrounding acreage. The amount Rhodes saved yearly on his property taxes this year alone is closer to $150,000.00. He can write his recent growing enterprise off as an added big loss plus he built a 10,000 square foot administrative building that can be depreciated as a loss over several years to come.

Think about this. There isn't one project that Rhodes has finished or hasn't lost to a bankruptcy. Imagine having a subdivision named after you that you started, Rhodes Ranch, and not even having it in your name still and having to start a spinoff company Harmony Homes.
Just like many of us he got in way over his head in the slowdown in the economy but everyone on here is way to optimistic to think he is going to turn this around by himself.
Think about all the food he planted in Golden Valley and it froze without even having a chance to mature. A sane person wouldn't do this, planting late in the season and knowing winter is coming. I'm surprised that any of his hired hands didn't tell him that it wasn't a good idea. But even if they did he won't listen. Plus none of them work there long enough to have a say in anything anyway. Research his turnover rate. It obviously isn't his money to risk. I don't know how or where he is drumming up the farming money (USDA grants?)
It's time that people on here and in Golden Valley not rely on one person with a dismal track record to increase the value of their property. You want it to be worth more then go out there and work the property. Plant trees, extend the water, and power. Drill a well if you have to. You spent too much on it? Then sell your overpriced tract home in the big city you are in and move here. Stop trying to get on the gravy train behind one person and do something for yourself.
Conscientious Objector, I agree with you 100%. Several of us should get together and doing something now. We should get together and discuss how we can start doing something now. I'm willing to talk.

Any thoughts on what the new amphitheater reported in the Laughlin (up to 21,000 seating) Times might do for Golden Valley or Kingman.

Mikey, that all makes sense. I am on board with the idea Rhodes has development plans for the future in GV. Unfortunately who knows when.

Villa man, as long as the surrounding metropolitan areas (ie,southern California, Las Vegas, Phoenix) continue to show marked home appreciation as they have in these few years past, then rest assured those thousands of baby boomers will be in a great financial position to cash-in on their home equities and invest mortgage-free in Pravada. I see this phenomenon as an ongoing dynamic that should show signs of fruition within five years or less. Let's all hope so for sooner rather than later, for it's inexorable as an end result.

Looks like the silver turtle gave up pickle farming already but
his tumbleweed farm has grown. Better take away the keys to the graders and dozers before he expands again.

Prvada was an excellent idea
I for one very much look forward to its start and success
I have friends in both Roads Ranch and Tuscany in Las Vegas and these are both excellent communities
I suppose when you're extremely talented and successful people will tend to pick you a little bit

Is it just down for winter or is the experiment over?

Anyone hear of the I-11 proposal that would turn that route into a major player between Mexico to Canada, and all the cities in between. I know I-11 is near Golden Valley and would def boost the areas value. Anyone hear if this is going down or will and what effects it will really have.

I have attached a link below from Kingman Daily Miner. It seems it is still in planning and funds are not available as of yet. I anticipate it will be years before construction begins.

All-
I have several questions based on the comments of Golden Valley, now Kingman Farms located off Stockton Hill Road area known as Red Lake (supposively some huge acrage all farming) hiring Contractors to complete Water Wells? Does anyone have input on being a Contractor for Rhodes Development? Any past performance history? Are there investors, Casino backed or is this a one man company?

Community is working on a plan to market the area in order to attract a grocery store retailer. There is no one in sight at the moment.

I don't think that Rhodes is planning on a massive revitalized planting operation on Kingman Farms come this Spring; unless it is to his tax advantage to further his farm losses on his ledger. He will be content to enjoy his reduced tax liabilities though the A-1 rezoning for the next five years until he strategically acts; and he will eventually. Let's all see what pans out come this Spring--it's only fifteen days away!

3/12/14 LA Times Headline: Housing prices surpass bubble peak in some southland ZIP codes.
With ongoing dynamics like these it won't be question of if, but when Rhodes eventually acts. Also, Las Vegas home prices rose over 25% this past year; ending February.

@Mikey, oh so agree. Look at population growth and prices, LA as you mention, I11, proximity to Vegas, near major highway, airports. Golden Valley, Kingman will take off and people will say why didn't I see that. Too many pluses for this area not to experience heavy development.
I say in 5-10 years GV area will be bustling. We'll see.

I would tend to agree with you guys. Let's hope your right. I just recently got a postcard from an individual wanting to purchase the parcel of land I own in GV. I know that this type of contacts are from individuals wanting to buy the land at a ridiculous price, but I've come to notice the start of these correspondences typically occur right before a boom.
