UPDATE: Thursday has passed and no agreement was reached between Morning View and the remaining Dixon landowners, according to Chairperson Carissa Carpenter. As we explain below, Morning View says they will now pursue Solano County, which means the studio would be built on two separate sites.
ORIGINAL STORY: Morning View has agreed to terms for the purchase of 265 acres worth of land in Dixon, but they need 300 acres to begin making purchases and starting construction, and now they've reached a snag.
That's according to the company's chairperson, Carissa Carpenter, who left a voice message with Dixon Patch Monday evening.
"We have not come to terms" with the other three landowners, said Carpenter. "We can't keep raising the price (of the land). We've put a deadline for Thursday for them to accept."
Carpenter said that if no agreements are reached before Thursday, Morning View will move on to Plan B.
"Plan B is to take down some county property and move half the project to the county," she said. "That's where we're at."
"Carpenter said she and her team are now in the middle of negotiating land in Solano County that would give Morning View, with the 246 acres in Southwest, more than enough acreage to construct its project," writes the Dixon Tribune. "This other piece of land is not connected to, but is near the acreage included in the Letters of Intent to Purchase Agreement with the Southwest landowners."
All property owners are signing non-disclosure agreements, meaning we can't specify which of the property owners have or have not signed the letters of intent. The prices are not known, either.
