Utah Transportation System SUCKS!
Some of you may or may not know that my house has now been put into the path of the Mountainview corridor.
The Mountainview corridor is supposed to relieve some congestion on the I-15 and allow Westside of Utah and
I-15 congestion in the Lehi to
Dave Klock has been portrayed in the media as the saviour of the world. Lets bring down this false god with a few facts.Dave Klock is the head of Citizens Organized for Smarter Transportation (COST). This website makes Dave Cost look like an environmentalist; he is not.Dave Klock is a real estate developer with landholdings in the south end of Lehi and
In today’s Daily Herald it appears that Klock has already clouded the vision of
“The Saratoga Springs City Council approved the resolution supporting UDOT's alternative at 2100 North for a freeway as the ‘least disruptive to existing and future development.’ The council also noted it had the least amount of environmental impact while being the most affordable and practical for the traffic demands.”Daily Herald, April 2, 2007.
This article prompted me to write a letter to the Mayor of Saratoga Springs Utah Tim Parker.
Dear Mayor Tim Parker,
Thank you for condemning my home by endorsing the 2100 North option for the Mountainview corridor.Thank you for ruining my homes resale value and removing any ability to sell it. I think this was very thoughtful of you. I was wondering when you will be purchasing my town home now that you have killed its value?
I think you are very short sighted. I-15 has a problem and you have just added to the problem. The purpose of the Mountainview corridor is to relieve traffic on I-15 and to allow

My question to you is: how much money is developer Dave Klock spending to make you blind?
To clarify: the thought of losing my house to progress like a freeway doesn’t bother me at all. I just hope to get a fair value and for this to happen asap.I don’t want to be stuck in my house for 5 years while this all gets settled. Lets make a choice and get moving because currently I am in limbo.I have lost the desire to finish my basement, redo my backyard with sprinklers and several other projects I would like to do this summer. Right now it will make it tough to sell my house with so much unknown and even tougher on its value. That being said I still think that this is a bad idea to use 2100 North in Lehi as the route to connect the Mountainview corridor.
Lehi city has proposed tree lined connectors to the Mountainview corridor. I like this idea.2100 North is still a major part of this and I am fine with that as long as it doesn’t become a Bangerter highway fiasco aka poor design and poor traffic management.
It just sickens me to watch
