    The developer apparently made no attempt to work within the system. The local paper contained letters about high handed and threatening tactics. No doubt, the project will eventually be approved but with some local input. there is a never ending conflict between the property rights of owners of undeveloped land and existing residents who have rights as well. A good example for Jeremy is that not all that many people in the county want an adult bookstore operating just around the corner.

    It's nice to see the County Council, for once, consider thinking of the beauty of the area instead of $, which they get none of. This county is losing its beauty and before you know it, will look like California and other over developed areas.

    The developer should have waited until after he'd filed for incorporation before holding his press conference. That's his own fault.

    As someone who owns a large amount of land in Wasatch County, they are totally against development. For that reason I've decided to delay developing myself. There is so much silly regulation. And residents who are against development need to look around at their own neighborhoods and consider where they would've lived had no one developed their houses.

    Such conduct by Wasatch County is not surprising. County officials often react to quickly without fully analyzing all issues pertanent to such an important topic. Who is not suprised that Wasatch County reacted in such a rash way?

    That's too bad. Maybe the developer can regroup and try to incorporate the town as Jackson Hole or Sun Valley instead of Aspen. How about Vail or Breckenridge? He's got a lot of equally unoriginal names he can trot out.
