Villa de Paz Golf Course on
the Chopping Block
Virtua Partners bought the Villa de Paz Golf Course and shut
it down. The profit-making golf course business has been
this developer and removed from participating in the market
The City of Phoenix with Virtua Partners are in the process of
eliminating habitat. First Virtua halted all
watering of the golf course. This led Villa de Paz residents
to file complaints about impending fire danger.
Then Virtua Partners removed
"dead trees" from the golf course. The habitat
including the trees was utilized by Greatest
Conservation Needs and Endangered Species.
These desperate tactics are
done to get around conservation laws like the Migratory Bird
Treaty Act of 1918. Normal acts of business, which the golf
course has been closed, mind you, can shield a company from
any species' accidental deaths. Unfortunately, illegal and
unlawful behaviors are not covered by any judgments created
by prior legal challenges.
The City of Phoenix and
Virtua Partners can be held responsible for the
deaths of protected wildlife and the destruction of habitat that has been encumbered during
these past weeks of destruction.
Villa de Paz residents are
seeking hold of all involved responsible for this
