Who Will Stand Up?

Sandy City's proposed "new downtown" is crap development. We all know it. Dean Howes will laugh all the way to the bank, just like the hundreds of other land developers who have cruised through the County system with a wink and a nod But who will stand up for everyone else? In a crowd of fat, spoiled little boys, who will stand up and say "This ends here!"?

Peter Corroon just calmly stood up and dashed all their hopes. That man has got the biggest cajones in all the county.

I must say the SLC Theatre Dist Deal/Sandy Stadium deal was someone palatable because the bulk of hotel taxes went to the Theatre Dist which is in the city that generates the majority of the hotel taxes. But this whole collateral thing essentially torpedoes that deal.

If building the damn stadium at the Fairpark is the cheaper alternative no matter how you slice it, why aren't all the fiscally responsible Republicans clamoring to support it? Yes, that is a rhetorical question.

And a note about the Sandy deal and urban sustainability. It would appear that Sandy is striving to become the urban core of the quickly-morphing Utah/SL County metropolitain area. Unfortunately, that is not a sustainable model, especially when all the transportation planning along the Wasatch Front puts SLC at the nexus of transit & roadways. Shouldn't SLC be where the "├╝ber-gateway" is built?
