What an atrocity


We had a failed university, but we have signage and a turn lane that goes nowhere; we had a failed hockey prep school that had outside financing and no purpose; now we have this clear-cut property that likely will also go nowhere! How to explain away the destruction of this property? I have to drive by this daily and it makes me sick.

The damage is irreparable and it was done secretively and again relying on outside financing.

Really the question is, what happens to this clear-cut property IF this project never gets done?

Really, the question is what happens if the project gets done with private resources. What are the upside potential benefits to Payson with the voluntary investment in our community by a group that has a huge risk at stake. On the other hand, if this specific project does not come to fruition, the property will be ready for development by another visionary that will happen as Payson experiences a bright future with its unique location & guaranteed water supply. As a taxpayer, I'm more concerned with pie in the sky projects that are funded with confiscated taxes, or the mismanagement of millions of tax dollars to operate a monopolistic bureaucracy.
