Stop Approval of New Patterson Development in Alpine Box Elder Flood Area

      Alpine, UT

With the recent mudslides, flooding and devastation to our mountains, we are all on high alert as to the dangers that are present in the Box Elder area. To  build a 59 lot subdivisionin the same Box Elder area that is already dealing with widespread flooding and mudslides, is a concern for our homes, our land and the safety of our families.

Those who have been affected by the devastation on the mountain have seen the damage created to the existing subdivision deemed "safe" previously. To build more homes in this area, is irresponsible, as evidenced by the dangers that do exist to the property as seen by the video above.

Regardless of any geologic survey, we see the instability of the mountainside, and we have continued to experience it.  In fact, it is shocking that in the middle of a year of flooding, fires, avalanche and mudslide danger in the very mountains proposed for development, that Utah County would even consider approving such a project.

      This is the only accessible part of the community that is left for biking and hiking. Yes, there are other trails, but none like Lambert Park. Why not just have the city of Alpine purchase it and then leave it?

      I bike here and bring my family here at least twice a week!

      The area is unstable, is used for recreation and all the emergencies in that area disrupts the area I live in.

      I have already had major damage flood damage as the result of the Patterson's caused fire which they take no responsibility for. I think the only reason the county approved the subdivision is because they are afraid of being sued by the Patterson's.
