Readers might have been taken aback to read in our Legal Notices section on April 2 about a landowner who intended to annex two parcels totaling about 60 acres south of the City of Moab.
In actuality — and as revealed in this week’s Legals section — the annexation is for a little more than three acres at 938 and 940 South Main. The applicant is Lions Back Holdings, a completely separate company and group of people from those hoping to build the Lionsback Resort near Sand Flats Recreation Area.
In an effort to get the formatting correct, a city employee copied and pasted a legal notice that was published in 2018 regarding the Wingate by Wyndham Hotel that has since been constructed in the 1200 block of south Highway 191, but neglected to change the acreages involved or the location.
As an aside, the Wingate withdrew its application for annexation and the hotel was built under county oversight.
The Moab City Council discussed the Lions Back annexation at their Feb. 25 meeting. The plans are for a hotel, according to Paul Jones, an attorney associated with the project. The correct legal notice issued from the city will publish in the next two editions.
