Bighorn-Desert View Water Agency buys 9.5 acres for Peanuts from County

SB county of San Bernardino this week sold eight parcels of property totaling approximately 19.3 acres it picked up through tax defaults to four governmental entities or foundations for amounts considered well below market value.

According to Larry Walker, San Bernardino County’s combined Auditor-Controller/Treasurer/Tax Collector, the land in question is located in Loma Linda, the San Bernardino Mountain community of Arrow Bear, Johnson Valley and Oak Glen.

“Pursuant to Chapter 8 of the California Revenue and Taxation Code, taxing agencies or eligible non-profit organizations have the ability to request to purchase a parcel once it has become subject to the Tax Collector’s power of sale,” Walker said.


Of the Johnson Valley property, Walker said, “The Bighorn-Desert View Water Agency has requested a Chapter 8 sale of tax-defaulted parcels, Nos. 0454-683-01-0000 and 0635-031-01-0000, for the general betterment of the agency facilities as described in the 2007 Bighorn-Desert View Water Agency Water Master Plan.


The intended use is for future capital improvements which could include water system facilities, groundwater production or monitoring wells, water storage tanks, water hauling stations, groundwater recharge facilities, pipelines, buildings, and/or appurtenances.


Parcel No. 0454-683-01-0000 is 5.0 acres, located off Old Woman Springs Road in Johnson Valley, and parcel No. 0635-031-01-0000 is 4.5 acres of undeveloped land located off Linn Road in Landers. The sale price of $12,400, plus the cost of giving notice, will satisfy all taxes, reimburse costs, and be apportioned accordingly. For the rest of this story>LINK
