Gov. Gary Herbert and the Legislature continue to preach the gospel of "economic development." But, please, no more along the Wasatch Front. Smog, traffic congestion, crowded schools, deteriorating infrastructure, increased crime and urban sprawl make the Wasatch Front look more like Los Angeles every day.
There already are too many people between Ogden and Provo, and too many people is the problem.
The state pays businesses with tax credits to relocate in Utah. If the businesses are willing to go to Price or Fairview or Delta or anyplace in between, welcome, but please, not in Bountiful or South Jordan or Lehi. The Wasatch Front is overloaded. Just drive through it.
