Gated community, what a hoot. Who do think bought the Fox Farm property several years ago, knowing full well it was landlocked and needed access to Payson water, roads, utility's, etc. to sell it? You think this annexation just popped up all of a sudden, just to get 760 acres of Forest land that Payson can do nothing with? This dark deal was hatched and planned at least two years ago by our Mayor, the Rim Club gated community owner elites, and DCK worldwide more than likely. And it was all hidden from the people of Payson until the last possible minute. It's also just a coincidence that DCK Worldwide just happens to be the fox farm purchaser/developer AND the developer of choice for the future college campus. And the builder of the future HPR Ammo facility. If this had all been up front in the beginning I would probably support it. But now I have no trust in our Mayor, other Town Officials, and the Fox Farm players. It's all so some already very wealthy entities can reap big bucks. All while keeping the impacted citizens in the dark until it is to late.

Wow, so the paper has determined that the Annexation/Fox Farm development plan has been LONG HIDDEN. By who, From who? The public that's who.
The project has ADVANCED QUIETLY up to this point, because it was done intentionally so by our Mayor on his own, the Rim Club, DCK Worldwide, and some in the Star Valley Town Government. Ya gotta love the Transparency of all this Dark Dealing.
Ok, I flipped my coin and it landed on the Payson Golf Course property for the College building site. It's flat, it's a beautiful setting next to green valley park, the Town wants to extend Green Valley Parkway anyway, and DCK World wide will probably do some $$ development of new stuff on the West end of Main St. This in addition to building the college campus. Besides, DCK will already be here developing and building on the 80 acre Fox Farm property about the same time frame. One might think this was almost planned some time ago? It's just probably all coincidental. Now the only hard sell point will be to convince all those home owners around green valley park that it's a win, win for them and the Town. Since I don't live in that immediate area anymore, I think that's the best place for the college to go. Plus we get something on Main St. Maybe where students and locals can have some night life and fun.
The sky is falling, the sky is falling, again..... It never ends, just throw more money at a failing educational system. Something needs to change and it's not more increased taxation of the public to keep it from crashing down. That has already happened.
Right on Pat. To busy trying to achieve Sainthood status. Can't you just feel a tingle run up and down your leg? With this article, he doesn't need the banner ad's running below this page. Those must cost a bundle for as long as they have been up and running.
As for the 70% getting the freebies. I say, don't trust, and verify. Maybe someone in the know can explain the meals entitlement program verification process that I'm sure the schools follow. Ya'll come on down and bring Ma and Pa with ya for the chow down. It's paid for by those chump taxpayers.

Just some clarification; The 80 acre Fox Farm property is private property, currently owned by the Rim Club Golf Association. They new it was LANDLOCKED when they bought it. The 760 acre annexation of the forest property is so that the 80 acre private property sale can go through as it will then be within Town of Payson jurisdiction. As the 80 acre Fox Farm is basically land locked, they need to have a guaranteed access to Payson infrastructure such as water, utility's, roadway etc. in order for DCK Worldwide LLC to buy it and build a light Industrial Park, period. The local Ammo Co. will only be leasing it's necessary space from DCK LLC who will own it. Our Mayor plotted this deal all out on his own starting 18 months ago. Payson can do nothing with 760 Forest acres it will be responsible for. This is all to accommodate a huge corporation big money private development on the 80 acre parcel with no guarantees as to what it will really be used for in the long term. If the Mayor hasn't already promised they get the right zoning in the near future, it's dead for an industrial park development.
Barbara, I just read the news article about the public hearing. Can you post here which two council people you are referring to and what it was they said? I'm sure many of us who were unable to be there would like to know. If your not comfortable with that, can you email it to me through this blog. Thank you.....
You might want to take a close look at some of the more recent and pending larger future projects in Payson. Your post fit's some of them.
