UPDATE: No Deal Reached Between Morning View & Dixon Landowners, Says Carissa Carpenter

Morning View is now negotiating with the county to split the film studio project between two swaths of land.


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."

Sacramento welcomes Morningview LLC and the region already has the talent and resources to ensure the health of a film studio with serious aspirations. Mayor Kevin Johnson should be courting this corporation while the farmers fight it out and lose out on the economic opportunity here.
