While many homeowners cope with damage from recent landslides, a massive 1983 slide that destroyed 10 homes and scarred an affluent Verde Canyon neighborhood is causing new rumblings of a different sort. To the dismay of some, and the relief of others, a developer is proposing to spend $6 million to $8 million to stabilize Verde Canyon and rebuild on the 10 condemned properties, six of which still have homes that were long ago abandoned and remain boarded-up haunts for vandals and transients.

More than nine years after several homes were condemned and abandoned following the massive Verde Canyon landslide, city officials are considering steps to have the eyesores demolished or repaired. City Manager Michael W. Parness said the city seeks to declare the six condemned homes a public nuisance and require the property owners to repair or demolish them. "It is a nuisance, and we certainly have the justification for proceeding," Parness said.

Planners have called for a major environmental and geological study of Verde Canyon before considering any development proposals that attempt to repair damage from a 1983 landslide that destroyed 10 homes. The recommendation came Monday night as the Planning Commission neared the end of its deliberations on the city's proposed General Plan, which will guide development and planning in the next 20 years.
