    A largely recognized builder is starting to build homes between Bloomington and SunRiver in the Saint George area.
    The views are amazing.
    Just a few problems...
    The homes will be located between and under two major power line areas and right along 1-15.
    There is no hiding these facts.
    One just has to wonder who would pay such large amounts of money for a new home with this location?
    Possibly homes will only have doors and windows on the northwest side of the house?

    It is my understanding that Rocky Mountain Power requires that property owners cannot build or even plant trees within several feet of a power line. If the lines are close to these yards, the residents may be restricted on what they can do on their property.

    The residents impacted should have received a letter from Lehi City about the potential impact to their property. I thought this was the law, but I guess I'm wrong. Once again, Ivory Homes is proving to be a bad neighbor and Lehi City is acting as an enabler.
