    Don't they know that no one wants them or their silly school for troubled kids? Why don't they go to Park City where there are many venues and programs for them. Leave us alone.

    Where are these facts coming from? There is nothing posted on the Weber County web site?

    Its coming from the planning office. They do not have the package ready to put on line. Next door neighbor to subject property when down to the planners today and looked at the petition. It will be presented on the 25th or 27th (no calendar handy) which ever is Tuesday. Just trying to figure what's happening.

    No this is a private school with there parents footing the bill. This is a school for trouble youth with an array of different issue. They will not be on lock down and could walk away at anytime...But of the bigger issues. Water, Sewer, Traffic, Policing, Lighting, Fire etc...we do not have what it would take to support a facility like this. Basically with the water...we'll all be drinking their sewer and taking a huge hit on water supply in general those of us with a well close to the facility. Traffic is already terrible on HWY 39 imagine how much more this will add. And lighting...we do have a "Midnight Sky Ordinance" here in the valley, how light poles and what it would take to light a facility like this, well their goes our Midnight Skies. Also policing is weber county perpared to handle a facility like this?? Another big one the proposed retention pond, flooding houses to the west. There are alot of issues and we all need to get involved. It just goes to show if it's not in my neighbors backyard, it will be in mine and if its not in mine it will eventually end up in someones!! Lets just make sure its not in the valley....Come to town meeting Thursday Jan 20th @ 7:00pm Huntsville Library.

    To get up to speed on the issue, go to our "Search The Forum" search box on the right side panel, and type in "Green Valley" and search. From their you will see links to our previous articles as well as documents from many neighbors of the first site that was proposed west of the Monastery.
