Supervisors to look at DarkHorse development

The developer of the luxury Dark Horse subdivision in southern Nevada County has not kept agreements made in previous years to gain approval for building, according to a letter from the county Department of Public Works.

On Tuesday, county supervisors will decide whether the developer is in default of those subdivision agreements at their regularly scheduled meeting.

“Despite several extensions and numerous demands, the work remains incomplete, and it has become apparent that the developer lacks the resources to complete the improvements,” wrote Doug Farrell, director of Public Works, in the June 12 letter.

The developer owes about $2.7 million “for labor, materials and utility connection and engineering fees,” Farrell wrote.

Supervisors will decide whether to foreclose on millions of dollars in security bonds the developer provided to the county, which the county could use to finish the “forfeited improvements,” Farrell wrote.

Supervisors will discuss the matter after 1:40 p.m. Tuesday at the Eric W. Rood Center. The meeting starts with other matters at 9 a.m.
