I really get miffed when those blasted bulldozers have to scrape off every inch of vegetation, and the wind blows dust all over the place, the rain washes off the topsoil. They can be such greed heads, and want to pave everything.
Anything for the almighty dollar...I live up nar a mountain, and i have an underground tank, and I am a hermit..(sort of). I love the peace, and cant stand to see all the instant suburbs popping up. The first thing they do is pave, and pollute with light, and houses so close together, it can drive you nuts. I would rather live simply, on 50 acres than to pay thru the nose for a 500 grand home...I never waste water, and my electric bills are way low.

There is more than enough water to support these future developments. At present there is a huge acquifure running directly under Dolan Springs. These issues regarding water are just posturing on behalf of the township. Good Luck.

Todd, my name is Gord. I replied tonite in another thread to your request for more info on the property I own in Dolan Springs. I'll copy and paste it here too. By the way, how are you so familiar with the water situation there?

Here's my reply:

Hi Todd (and anyone else who's reading along):

You asked about my property in Dolan Springs. Don't know if you're still interested, but we're asking $28,000 and are open to offers. We searched all over Dolan Springs for several days for a one-acre parcel and finally hit upon this one. It's absolutely gorgeous, with lots of Josha trees. It's raised slightly above the land around it, so you have unobstructable views of Mt Mitten, Table Mountain, and the Grand Wash Cliffs. It's a five minute drive from the high school in Dolan Springs, close to the intersection of Maywood and 19th, just a few hundred yards off Pierce Ferry Road. The access is excellent - all the roads coming in from Pierce Ferry are wide and *very* smooth. The property has both power and telephone. Water is not far away, but in the meantime you'd have to get it trucked in. Fortunately, one of the two local water services in just a few minutes away. There are no washes on the property, and it simply will not flood. There is a home next door and two directly across the street. If anyone is interested, I can send you photos I took when I was there in January 2006. Just post back to this forum and give me your contact info.(By the way, we did own a 2.5 acre parcel in the middle of Golden Valley, but sold it because this one is waaay prettier.)

Unless so called Americans start boycotting these developments by refusing to buy them and make the scumbag developers and their little buddies on the planning commissions EAT THEM, then we will all be in the path of development and the U.S. will continue to become a third world country that buys all its food and water from another country.The U.S. government is the ONLY one that can save us from build-out, and look how they've handled our borders and allowed developers to seize control of our country's cities and watersheds. The baby boomers turned out to be the most greedy, insidious, and materialistic people in the history of the world. The terrorists must be smiling knowing that America will destroy itself.

The development that most people are talking about right now is the Rhodes development, Pravada, in Golden Valley. That development has already proven to the state that they have more than enough water for the complete build out of the 10 year project. Last word in July was that they had over 12,000 acre feet of water that is now set aside for Pravada. This is in addition to the water being used in Golden Valley currently and has not stopped 2 additional projects from pushing forward with their plans.

It is unfortunate that there are so many people willing and ready to spread rumors and speculation as truth because they do not want to see any development in the area.
