Public gets chance to discuss Mountain Accord plan
(KUTV) The public will get a chance to discuss the future of the Central Wasatch Mountains on Monday afternoon.
The discussions can get very heated as some people in Utah County say they want their lands out of the Mountain Accord.
They fear they could lose about 400 acres in the canyon to a private ski resort.
The land is a small part of a big plan for the future of the Central Wasatch Mountains that's been in the works for years.
"Before we started the Mountain Accord effort, we were duking it out in the headlines half acre by half acres," said Laynee Jones, Mountain Accord. "We all agree that's no way to plan the future of the mountain."
As part of the accord, thousands of acres of ski-resort owned land will be traded and become public.
The final draft of the Mountain Accord will be open to the public discussion Monday at Sandy City Hall. The meeting starts at 2:30 p.m.
