We will take the easy way out this morning and leave the commentary up to the folks at the Weber County Forum.
Don't miss Rudi's rundown:
Powder Mountain Update: The Standard Examiner Sez "Compromise Appears Close"
Be sure to read Rudi's commentary carefully, especially near the end of item 1 where he states:
Whether the developer kicked up its demands during the litigation phase of negotiations we don't know; but based on the original proposed numbers, it would appear to us that the only compromising that's occurring with respect to the original "density" proposal would be on the Weber County Commission's part.Jan Zogmeister says she wants citizen comments, so give her your comments:
I really am at a wait-and-see point," said Weber County Commissioner Jan Zogmaister. "I've watched the whole thing progress for a couple years, so I am willing to hear it, but I also really would like to hear the input from the citizens who will be directly affected by this. ... The whole thing has been to represent the citizens in this agreement."Contact Ms. Zogmaister and her friends at:

Here is the information you requested regarding the Powder Mountain Rezone.
1. Was the “draft MOU” prepared by the applicant or Weber County?
The initial draft was prepared by the applicant.
2. Was the “draft MOU” prepared with any input from Weber County staff or Commission?
Negotiations were conducted with the County Commission with staff input.
3. Will the Planning office please provide the citizens of Weber County a simple chart showing density differences between the current zoning and that which is being proposed by the MOU.
A staff report is being prepared that will have some comparative information.
