A Broader Plan for Washington County

Story in the DesNews Tuesday indicates that Washington County commissioners signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Nature Conservancy, the Oquirrh Institute and Envision Utah to develop a vision plan for the fast-growing southwestern county.

This step is the logical follow-up to the bill announced earlier by Sen. Bob Bennett and Rep. Jim Matheson with regard to planning for the federal lands in the county.

With the St. George and Hurricane areas growing like they are, a "vision" of an alternative way to grow is sorely needed. Kudos to the local officials and groups involved, and good luck! It will be an adventure going through the process.
