NEIGHBORHOOD DOES KNOW BEST

I read the article regarding the closure of Terra Vista onto 2000 East and was piqued by the comments from Sandy City Council numbers, namely those regarding "safety " and "poor planning."' As a neighborhood, we were here first and we have acted en masse for more than 15 years to protest later entrants such as:

1. A shopping center rather than single-unit homes2. A tortuous alignment of 2000 East

3. The Cottonwood Sanitary District office and maintenance complex.

We were thwarted on each account.

A Planning Commission chairman told us at one meeting: "If it makes good sense, we don't care what the neighbors think." Obviously we didn't know what was good for us because now we have poor-safety problems and more than 100 households with only one egress via a dangerous intersection onto 2000 East.
