The suburbs are growing because the population is growing. All the kids in Utah
need to live somewhere as they become adults. They all can't live in SLC. To
complain about the growth of the suburbs while having many kids is a bit
disingenuous. If you don't want the suburbs to grow, limit the amount of kids
you have. But that is not going to happen. People will keep having
many children, necessitating the growth of the suburbs. May as well create nice
How about all you people that keep complaining about the development of land and
over population and global warming hysteria, move to a country where the
government owns the land and controls everything. That way those of us who love
America and appreciate that owning private property is a constitutional right,
can enjoy prosperity and growth without having to hear from a bunch of negative
naysayers complaining about everything under the sun.
As a resident of South Jordan I am now glad that the eastside residents decided
to leave the district. Now all of the revenue from the new developments on
Kennecott land will go to my schools instead of rebuilding theirs!
According to my calculation, all this growth will result in air that is
positively toxic and traffic that is absolutely impenetrable. How about leaving
the west bench as open space? There is plenty of room in the already developed
areas of Salt Lake County for in-fill and higher-density re-development.
I know there is perhaps some contamination on some land, but the vast majority
of the land has not been touched. I have not heard anything about mudslides or
landslides and I live near there. Looking at what they have done so far
(Daybreak), Kennecott Lands seems pretty responsible to me.
Developement of the kennecott mountain should be done with reservations and
caution as there is a lot of contamination to the land there. Along with the
fact that much of this land is prone to land slides and mudslides. It should not
be developed as dense housing and careful planning by the county and city
governments, not the developers who could care less about the safety and quality
of homes they build.
Accordıng to my calculation, all thıs growth will actually occur by
the year 2065. i thınk whoever dıd thıs projection ıs overly
optomistic. Don't forget to factor in global warming and the offset cost for
each homes carbon footprint. This could mean millions of dollars spent to offset
greenhouse gases. Also projected by 2080 ıs a democrat wıll wın
