Draper is trying to become the new "Sandy" in the southern part of the County. Look out!

So.......if I want to build a new home on my lot should I go to the county and ask them to pay for water, power and sewer hookups, oh and the "impact fee", not to mention the building permit?

Why should developers get all the "freebies" in lieu of taxes? Afterall MY property will generate new property taxes also.

IF the project is viable, developers will build it. No need to subsidize developers.

Isn't it about time we STOPPED subsidizing developers?

"We hope someone will build a 100-story building," said Draper City Councilman Troy Walker, who also serves on the Utah Transit Authority board.

Hmmm, List of all American cities with 100 story buildings: Chicago (2), New York (1).

So, by Walker's logic, Draper is clearly the logical No. 3. Especially in a seismic zone. Mr. Walker needs to buy himself a clue.

I smell guilt on part of County Council. They pushed through a huge tax hike right after the parks and rec bond passes. They know their luck will run out if they keep raising taxes. Maybe they hope this situation will be a distraction or "redemption" from their other tax raising decisions. They need to follow through on their promises and support the Frontrunner.

Where was Utah Taxpayers Association when County was passing their tax hikes in November? Now they step in?

100 story building...sounds like city managers have their heads in the clouds already
