Environews: Trailhead or development?

By Amy Brunvand

Utah Open Lands is working towards a September 10 deadline to purchase 27 acres of open space at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon.

The land could become a regional trailhead for the Bonneville Shoreline Trail or it could become an upscale housing development, de­pending on whether the $3 million purchase price can be raised in time.

A challenge grant from AHE/CI Trust doubles donations made before the deadline.
