Moab has been over promoted and subsequently over developed for the last 30 years and now the chickens are coming home to roost.
How can we as a community acknowledge we have a housing shortage but say it’s OK to build two to three new motels a year?
I would like to see more restriction on development, not less.
Abandoning traditional zoning has an air of desperation about it. Further, I don’t believe there is a correlation between shoe-horning a bunch of new residential units into town and below market rents or sale prices. Real estate development is, after all, a for-profit enterprise.
The High Density Overlay is an erroneous solution to a legitimate problem that threatens to further erode our quality of life in Moab
PS: Bravo to Jaylyn Hawks for fighting against the tide.
