Standard-Examiner: Public Easement to Remain Open in Wolf Canyon -- UPDATED

Chalk it up as another victory for the Ogden Valley citizen activists in their ongoing battle against the Powder Mountain developer greed and oppression

As a followup to Sunday's WCF article, we're pleased to learn that the Weber County Commission has unanimously voted today to preserve year-round access on the public easement in Wolf Canyon:
Wolf Canyon Trail to stay open all year / Ski resort's request to restrict access denied
"All three commissioners said they did not see why the resort could not carry out safety measures while still preserving public access on the trail."

As Dan S. also reported in the previous article comment section, "about a dozen citizens spoke against the proposal, and it was apparent that the commissioners had also received quite a few emails expressing the same sentiment."

Chalk it up as another victory for the Ogden Valley citizen activists in their ongoing battle against Powder Mountain developer greed and oppression.

Update 12/18/09 10:00 a.m.: The Standard-Examiner chimes in this morning on this topic, congratulating the Weber County Commission for its sound Tuesday public policy decision:
OUR VIEW: Keeping trail open right call
Ogden Valley Forum also has a few choice words on the subject this morning:
