$4.5 M is an exorbitant cost to taxpayers. The high construction cost will be eclipsed by undisclosed future maintenance cost because of the terrain, erosion and weather conditons. Wildlife will be displaced, stressed, and disturbed by construction. Delicate wild flora uprooted and killed. Wildlife and horses cannot travel safely on asphalt hills, especially when competing with fast moving downhill traffic. Current wood chip trails are more compatible with ecology of the low impact use of the park’s Master Plan. Several delicate archeological sites have been discovered in Dimple Dell. The Park likely holds untold treasures that should not be disturbed by construction. Dimple Dell is ideal for equestrians because of its low-impact mulched trails without moterized traffic. Road bikes, scooters, skate boarders, and other fast-wheeled downhill travelers on steep terrain will require expensive enforcement and park control to protect slower paced walkers, families, senior citizens and equestrians. There are just too many negative points against the plan to pave this park. Please don't do it!

This is a very important cause. We have to make a stand to preserve the natural environment in this state. I support this effort. Check out my petition to ban wildlife damaging, single use plastic bags in Salt Lake City. Together let's help preserve and beautify the natural environment in this beautiful state!

This was their land first not ours. Go live in the city if you want to view concrete from your window and leave Dimple Dell and its beauty and wildlife alone. Respect what God created and learn to live with nature, not against it.

My mom and I deeply enjoy the scenery and wildlife during our horse riding get a ways. We always look forward to seeing the owl, and a doe with the twins. Every time we come is in the evening and that's when we see them.

If you lay down asphalt, our horses shoescould easily slip on hills,(with metal shoes may spark and cause fire). Also we have seen many bunnies who's feet will be burned during summer temps. Also people that walk their dogs way injur their dogs the sane way.

I spent time in the gully as a youth and an adult and don't see how paving it will improve it at all. There are wiser ways to use tax payers money.
