Urgent: Comments On Proposed Willow Lakes Subdivision ASAP
If you are so inclined, please virtually attend the Logan Planning Commission meeting tonight and provide comments on the proposed “Willow Lakes Subdivision”.
See PC Agenda (attached) for how to join the meeting and PC 21-009 for the development proposal (also attached).
As you can see from the proposal, this development would replace nearly 150 ac of the Logan River floodplain and wetlands with a 300-unit development, as well as a slalom ski lake and a wakeboard lake. Also, 200 of the units would be multiple-family and up to 3 stories tall.
The development is in direct opposition to the Logan River Conservation Action Plan and will most likely create a major flooding hazard.
While the developer is willing to provide a 47 ac conservation easement and help pay for a recreational trail, the overall development would be ecologically disastrous and socially irresponsible.
Sorry for the short notice, this just came to my attention. I hope you can make it tonight.
Frank P. Howe, Ph.D.
Chair, Logan River Task Force
The Planning Commission Project Report Summary recommends conditional approval for the Willow Lakes Subdivision. The Logan City Council tends to vote in agreement with the Planning Commission, so making comments at this point in the process would be most impactful.
