So the growth that many northern cities, mostly on the west side of SL Valley
has been plagued by deceptive developers and city officials studies. Although
the UGS has made more information available much of the information was already
their. I have read the UGS studies and it is clearly indicated that their are
many areas developed that should not have been. It placed home buyers and
homeowners in harms way. The developing northern cities know of these dangers
yet allowed developement. The red flag came when cities were including in home
building contracts with land developers that cities were indemnified of any
legal liability for developement. This means that cities knowingly with full
knowledge of geological hazards allowed home construction on land that should
not be developed with dense population. The areas devleoped was done by
deception and lies. The warnigs have been in the UGS mapping and charts for
decades and methods of avoiding responsibilty by cities and developers have been
established to allow deceptive developement. Thus, home buyers have been duped
into living in dangerous geological hazard areas and many are finding this out
with major geological damage to their homes.
And you are? And what makes you this expert? Furthermore, if we want to get
nitpicky, no one should be living in Utah, anywhere, because there is geologic
activity throughout the state, there are faults everywhere, risks of flooding
everywhere. So, where should we live? There are risks everywhere? It's part of
life. But it doesn't mean someone has lied, deceived, or fraudulent; it means
there are risks in life, we all know it, but we are willing to live, act, and
move forward anyway.Hurricane, Laverkin, and Toquerville all sit on
top of the Hurricane fault--so, according to you, no one should be living there.
Same for the Wasatch front, SLC, Provo, Orem, Logan, Ogden, all sit on or near
fault areas, so no one should be living there either.All rivers and
creeks are subject to flooding. If enough water comes fast enough or long
enough, every river and creek on earth will flood. The Mississippi floods, the
Red River floods, the Virgin River floods, and Cottonwood Creek floods. So what?
What is your occupation? Real Estate, developer, or financial? You just don't
get it do you. Develop, buy, sell, lend and more GREED, GREED, GREED.
"more GREED, GREED, GREED" You sound like a California hippie.
It is greedy to build homes knowingly on unstable ground, not disclose the
hazards and then say "buyer beware, I'm not responsible" after the home
inevitably cracks apart. You don't have to be a hippy from California to think
that profiteering in this manner is just plain wrong.
