    Editor,

    The new proposed USU campus is an incredibly bad idea. The community cannot handle it. We’re already overcrowded/overrun with tourism, there’s no housing, there’s no water. More growth is not going to help this community/region.

    We needed to put the brakes on growth a few years ago. SITLA is not a good development partner. They are bullies and will run roughshod over the city/county/community. This new proposed campus should have been put on the ballot for the community to vote on. Becoming a university town is no small thing and the fact that it’s being forced upon us is just plain wrong. Water is a huge issue. We live in the arid West and we’re growing/developing like we are a high precipitation region. It’s extremely irresponsible and dangerous. We need to slow down and step back, we’re losing our town and we’re destroying our small-town quality of life. This university is another nail in the coffin for Moab and the amazing lands that surround it.

    Please put the brakes on growth. Enough is enough!!
