Dr. John Carter, Engineer, Ecologist, and Manager of Yellowstone to Uintas Connection, sent the following comment on August 13 to the Morgan County, Utah, Planning Commission, who were considering the application to change the designation of a 3,000 acre site of land from “Natural Resources and Recreation” to “Master Planned Community.”
