The Saga of SB 269
When the homeowner read the content of bill, it became clear that this bill, sponsored by Senator J. Stuart Adams was intended to empower the County Governments so they could enter into written agreements with property owners in order to reach a settlement on active litigation. The bill went on to state they could act “WITHOUT PRIOR CONSIDERATION OF OR RECOMMENDATION FROM THE PLANNING COMMISSION.”
The ramifications of such a bill would be insidious. The fact that a Utah State Senator would draft such a bill with that language and intent is difficult to comprehend. It is also obvious this bill was intended to target the current Powder Mountain issue with the Weber County Commission.
State Representative Gage Froerer contacted us later in the day and told us that SB269 could not get through the House and would not succeed.
This state and its citizens have seen enough poorly conceived legislative bills that are detrimental to the state’s residents and appear only to benefit developers.
