We received an interesting email recently from a California contractor and developer with ties to Ogden Valley, and feel it important to share:
Are you going to the meeting on 26 Feb for the workshop? Do we know what they are up to? Do you realize that these meetings with these formats are designed to divide and conquer? It should be turned into a regular meeting where people speak to a general audience with or without a moderator. This is very effective in getting locals to agree to things that they never dreamed of.
I see less water and more houses coming out of this.
We have to agree. While we appreciate the request for input, quite often those who provide the 'input' (or are asking for the input) are those who have a different view of how the valley should look in 20-30 years from now. Often the input comes from developers or investors who are scheming to make a fortune at the expense of those who choose to make Ogden Valley their home.
Attend tonight and speak up.
