More than 200 families will lose their land and homes Tuesday as the controversial developer in Liberty County continues mass foreclosures. Nearly 97 percent of foreclosures in the county are now linked to a neighborhood housing a growing number of illegal immigrants.
Colony Ridge is a development of the politically powerful Harris family. The new subdivisions have been called colonias and the world’s largest trailer park as many of the families live in buildings and homes without access to sewer or water.
The Harris family company’s owner-financed deals include interest rates of up to 13 percent, causing many people’s hopes of the American dream to be dashed. That may explain the dramatic increase in Liberty County foreclosures.
Some of the lands was supposed to be auctioned last month, but Dolcefino Consulting busted the auctioneers for not holding the auction properly. The lawyer of Colony Ridge threatened violence if we came to his house for comment. We are told Colony Ridge is the successful bidder on all the properties.
Dolcefino Consulting was hired by the neighboring small town of Plum Grove where complaints of bad drainage, road damage, fires, and crime have escalated in recent months.
Between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Tuesday, December 1, 2020, the latest Colony Ridge auction is scheduled to take place for the 209 properties. We will be there as part of our continuing investigation.
