A development company filed a lawsuit against the Town of Yucca Valley and nine other defendants last week, alleging, among other things, that the Town is requiring it to make improvements that it contends should have been made by the developer from whom it bought the property. According to the complaint filed January 13 by Mirage Front Properties, shortly after it bought a parcel subdivided into 17 half-acre lots, the Town sent a letter threatening fines of $1800 a day until it completed street and other improvements that were part of the Subdivision Improvement Agreement. Mirage Front Properties argues that it bought the property—bordered by Yucca Trail, Balsa Avenue, Arcadia Trail, and Emerson Avenue—believing that the terms of the Subdivision Improvement Agreement had been fulfilled, and that the improvements should be paid for by either the original developer (who agreed to the terms in the first place), or from the $816,000 in bonds issued by the original developer to ensure that the work was completed. Mirage Front Properties is suing the Town for fraud, conspiracy, breach of contract, intentional interference with a contract, and damages. It is asking for an injunction to prohibit the Town from stripping the property of its subdivision status, and against the daily fine of $1,800. It is also asking for attorney’s fees, court costs, repayment of the higher property taxes it has been paying, the $816,000 in bonds, and damages.
