1. Rocky Mountain Power wants to put HUGE power lines through the heart of our valley to help Park City with their power needs. Many citizens are not happy about the visual and health impact of having these poles next to their property. Latest video of January 24th Heber Light & Power meeting!  Go here for continuing updates on this issue

2. REFERENDUM PETITION ALERT! Wasatch County Council just approved ANOTHER rezone of a 20 acre piece (from 1 house per 20 acres to 1 house per 5 acres). It is in the same Central Zone where the North Fields are, so citizens took steps to stop the action that threatens the beloved North Fields again. Last year’s North Fields rezone ballot item had almost 74% of voters saying they DID NOT want a rezone, but click here to see the latest action by the council to defy that wish.

3. Wasatch County has decided to move forward with an open space bond election either in 2017 or 2018, since the citizens voted overwhelmingly to preserve the current zoning in the Northfields last November. There’s much to do, but see the discussion here to learn more about the issues.
