If this project really was good high quality development that would be one
thing. But given that Bear Lake doesn't have a real draw for year round
and is hard to get to...my hunch is that this development (if it ever happens)
will be not the "good" kind of development. The investment side of this
proposal will be difficult to be profitable.
"It's been referred to as the Caribbean of the Rockies forever because
of the crystal-blue water,” Spuhler said. “So naturally, we want to
ruin it with cheap, chintzy construction and overcrowding.”Yep, that's what we're doing better than any state in the Country.
Other states see the value in not immediately turning their most treasured
resources into lame theme parks.
Anyone going to put water in the lake?
What kind and how much pollution is this going to cause to the lake?
It stays bitter cold up there from October until May, and the lake actually
freezes in the winter. My guess is that it gets as far as the Sugarhouse
'hole' on 2100 South and 1100 East. Bear Lake is meant to be a secret
Great article! I hope it comes to pass and will be a great success. It is
exactly what Bear Lake needs right now.
A 3-month long season is going to make it tough to turn a profit.
I hope like heck this happens. But how many of these type of plans have we
seen over the past few years, with no actual development?
