HB 164, the town incorporation bill to correct the flawed town incorporation legislation of last year's HB466, was signed into law yesterday. The bill does not include a retroactive provision that would have addressed the Powder Mountain town incorporation. This is disappointing, but the bill does insure that no additional town incorporation's will happen in Utah without the affected resident's involvement and participation.
The passage of HB164 does not preclude future legal action by the affected homeowners if deemed necessary. However, if a reasonable compromise rezone agreement can be reached between the County and the Powder Mountain owners that is satisfactory to all parties on the density and traffic safety issues along with other conditions, no legal challenges would be required.
