Hopefully someday your parcels will be worth 40,000
As I have been buying lots in your section for the past five years
Most recently bought two of them for 1500 each
When you're ready to talk to reality would be glad to make an offer to buy your three parcels
I understand the third parcel is south of the proposed private a project
In any case I'm aware of your three lots

How you know exactly where my parcels are? Received taxes and just paid them. Was surprised my 2 lots on Apache tax was only $34 each and the last one in the south was $159. I see that there are 2 developed properties on Apache with power. Those 2 lots should be worth more. Do you know why the other parcel tax is much higher.
Yes,hope to sell in near future. Had these things since 1991.

Regardless of what you or I think about the plant, villa man, it will become a living reality within the next year; commencing the Fall of 2015. What is the alternative to powering the southern valley or Pravada, for that matter? It is to be located just south enough in the valley so as not to become a blight to property owners like you. What do you care what surroundings look like near the Arizona State Prison? All Golden Valley owners will eventually be thanking their lucky stars for this much-needed economic stimulus. Land owners like myself near the plant will be able to more easily rezone their land light-industrial or commercial and increase their value eventually ten-fold.
Well, we will see. I hope your lot goes up 10 fold because of rezoning. Power is not an issue most anywhere but hope you are right. Of course I don't care what is around Arizona State Prison.

I was in Golden valley about a week ago to look at the new RHODES HOMES and they are spectacular for the price so I reserved a lot. I wasn't too thrilled with the 110 degree temperature but then again it's hotter in Palm Springs. I may be wrong but I think in a few years Golen Valley will definately rival Palm Springs Ca.

Really ????? your a Complainer and a Quitter

Millions of us holding real estate---got killed-- you dust your self off -- and keep going

I held about 20 parcels 6 years ago --- at a big loss

now I hold about 125+ there almost !!!!!!! worth more then I paid for them now

as you guys have been giving them away last 4 years or so

if you buy a lot for 20k-- you will never get your money back (20k)

when you buy 1 for 20k and 6 for 1,500 your cost per lot is ($4,142 )

my last offer was 4k per lot--- not fixed --- but close

just keep on-- keeping on --- time will tell how this ends ?????

Real estate has not been the greatest investment especially for raw land. I've learned that raw land is a high risk high reward investment. Real estate prices will come back for homes first then us dirt investors.
I'm still making a killing in stock market. I held on to my stocks during the great recession and glad I did. My neighbors sold theirs during the bottom and still haven't got back in and they are kicking themselves for it.
Next year I will be investing in oil and homebuilder funds. Getting too old for this.
Sometimes I think if I stop investing and just take my profits I will die too early.

According to www.kdminer.com , if there is just a 3% annual Kingman growth/year and Rhodes is allowed to farm 75% of his local acreage after the BLM transfers in the next three years from now there will only be left with a 55-year water supply for the whole area! Quake up people! I would be completely and utterly outraged if I were a concerned resident in Kingman! Sadly, there is little that can be done in the long run unless the water laws are changed. I feel deeply sorry for the families in Kingman. He's going to bleed the area forever dry. Over the last eight years, I've come to like the Kingman community even though I live some 150 miles away to the east. This is not my last stand here, by any means.

What are the short-term ramifications of suing in Federal District Court for an injunction barring Rhodes' future water-well drillings until a comprehensive long-use water policy can be adopted by the Arizona State Legislature? Don't you all think that it is in the State's best interests to pursue the common water welfare future of a community such as Kingman? There should be a new water policy adopted in this instance. And the sooner we nip this problem in the bud, the better.

Rhodes' long-term plan to trade some of his private landholdings for Federal BLM Land makes this entire discourse a FEDERAL ISSUE. A written contract must include in all fairness measures to temper his future water-well drilling endeavors in a measured manner to insure the future well-being of the Kingman community for at least the next 100 years to come. We shall all see how the major power brokers and civic entities reach such a resolution. I really have my doubts as to a successful long-lasting outcome.

In the case of Arizona vs. California (373 US 546)(1963), the US Supreme Court expanded the reserve water rights doctrine to include all Federal reserve public lands. In 1976, the Court went even further and upheld an injunction against ground water pumping; so there exists ample legal precedent here. I think that it is only a matter time until a Federal lawsuit is initiated in this instance by a group of very concerned residents and I am certain that they will have standing to sue and pursue the matter further until an equitable resolution is reached.

Someone needs to do something to stop all the water waste but it doesn't seem like the officials care. Have they been paid to look the other way?

It will not just be the local civic leaders, but the Administrators of the BLM who will ultimately bear the brunt of the blame. What sort of transparency will exist when the exchanges take place? Will it simply be meetings in closed-door sessions between each parties' respective attorneys? How much input from the public hearings will be allowed and will that alter any of the final tradeoffs?
How will the reserve water rights of the BLM be protected in the trade? What sort of appraisal criteria will be used? Water rights certainly come into play here in determining each parcel's value.
Politicians, sadly to say, are only interested in lining their own pockets for the short-term gains and could really care less about the long-term prospects. If Rhodes ultimately gets his way, and I think that there is a high-probability that he will, he will be able to bleed the valley dry forever in the space of just 55 years. The state hydrologists have already stated that fact.

Has anyone been to Golden Valley? It's a retirement community in the desert. I am from Orange County, it is a small community. It is Dirt roads no grocery stores. My biggest memory is a LOUD obnoxious blinking light in the center of town for a porn store. There are a few churches, few shops, no parks, open space, few (gas stations, mostly) retail stores, few commercial businesses, etc. for residents. According to our research of Arizona and other state lists there were 31 registered sex offenders living in Golden Valley, Arizona as of November 20, 2014. In Golden Valley, Its a little rough out here, But its no worse than any where else. There is a water system and electricity. They are both reasonable, Just remember its the Dessert. They shoot thieves out here so their really isn't a problem. Now the tweekers aka meth heads they do like to pick up what ever they can find. Leave your stuff out at night and it will be gone. You can shoot them too, If you see them!!(cabintop 2009). Seems that either people love living there, or really don't like living there for the most part. Unfortunately about 90% of the people have said that theft and meth issues are BAD in general in Golden Valley. Its unfortunate, because for what we do, other than theft, Golden Valley would be great for me (ichoptops 2009). Personally, I wouldn't want any of my family members to reside there. That is my opinion.
