Too many wildlands adjacent to Salt Lake City and elsewhere have been subdivided and blanketed with condos and McMansions. I think the big boys have gotten enough, so I'm going to watch this thing like a hawk. I'm an inhabitant of a cool part of Utah before I'm a skier, and I'd rather see ski areas go under than have an astonishing spot on this planet made vulnerable to the domination of the almighty dollar.
That's not a red herring. It's what they try to do every time something like this comes up.
So like many fellow-thinkers, I know all too well that growth sounds great until the other shoe drops and the real cost is revealed. So any time businesses join forces and want to take just a teensy little space and say we'll never notice it, I gird my loins (or would if I had any), identify alliances, and get ready for anything.
But nobody's said anything, just floated a big red balloon to see if it gets shot down. I'll be glad to take aim. I need the target practice anyway.
