Bonanza Flat at the top of Guardsman Pass in Big Cottonwood Canyon is close to being conserved by a wide breadth of stakeholders. The deadline is June 15. Although technically in Wasatch County, the area is most heavily used by Salt Lake County residents. It provides wonderful upper-elevation opportunities to hike, bike, swim, camp, fish and recreate in the snow. The Salt Lake County Council are the lone stakeholders unwilling to contribute thus far. I urge all readers to contact their representatives on the council to support funding the balance to save Bonanza Flat from certain development. It will save money in the long run through less road maintenance and watershed conservation. Your children and future generations will thank you for maintaining the high quality recreational and natural opportunities we all enjoy so close to our homes.
