By signing this petition we request the following actions by the following parties:


  • Remove the public nuisance by removing the buildings, tanks and refuse. Additionally prevent the use of the lots as camp sites by barricading or fencing off the property until such time as they begin operating the businesses which they have planned on building on these lots.


  • Make a finding that these lots and the buildings upon them are in fact public nuisances in accordance with the excerpts cited above; serve a notice to abate to the owner, Sun Development LP.
  • Liaison with the Mohave County Sheriffs Office to control use of the lots by vagrants and criminals and the Pinion Pine Fire District to make a finding that the structures are a fire hazard in accordance with sub-section 13 (above).
  • In the event that abatement and removal is not be carried out, within the 30 days of the owner, Sun Development LP, being served with notice to abate, it is requested that the abatement and removal be performed by Mohave County and a lien be placed to cover the costs of abatement and removal per Mohave County ordinances. Abatement should include the expedient installation of fencing or concrete barriers and signage to bar its use as a dumping and camping site.
