The City of Cedar Hills received a legally nonbinding opinion from the Utah State Property Rights Ombudsman regarding the city’s prudent efforts to limit adverse impacts of high density development. The advisory opinion is available here: Advisory Opinion.
This opinion concludes that the city may not be able to limit the density and adverse impacts to the extent we believe prudent; however, it is still only an opinion, and thus not the final word. The city is actively exploring all available options, as enacted in the City Code, to balance the interests of the developer with the rights of the city to preserve the quality of life as valued in Cedar Hills.
