Here is some excellent insight surrounding the proposed Green Valley Academy. It was posted as a comment, but we feel it important enough for the front page.

Keep an eye on the property at about 9000 E on Highway 39 (South side of the road). Somebody recently made some big holes in the ground, likely doing tests for a septic system. I'm told the property is about 8 acres. Is this the new, proposed site for a "Green Valley Academy" (or whatever it's going to be called next)? Perhaps.
A lot of folks feel that the Green Valley Academy team will try again soon and, this time, they'll simply call it a "school." Since schools are part of the conditional uses allowed already, they'll claim they're already allowed to do what they want to do. (Remember that, back in June, they were trying to convince their proposed neighbors that their intentions were simply a combination of already-approved conditional uses.)
It's too bad that telling the whole truth didn't work before so, now, they're apparently going to diminish "the whole story" in an attempt to be approved. So I ask whether we can trust them going into the future when they are, apparently, engaging in a pattern of being less up-front as time goes on. And who believed that they were telling "the whole story" before anyway? We still don't know why they withdrew their petition at the end of the summer.
But at least if the zoning isn't modified then maybe it'll put a stop to the GEM Committee's apparent desire to dot the Ogden Valley landscape with care centers.
