Support Balanced Strategic Growth

I am in support of a city development plan that provides for a range of housing densities. With less expensive land than our neighbors and rural financing, Eagle Mountain is in a position to provide housing solutions to those who are buying their first home, those who want to get the more house for their money, and those that want to own large lots with animal rights. I feel that the current city guidelines for housing already provide the density necessary for affordable housing solutions. These guidelines should not be increased but instead should be accompanied with usable, strategically-located open space and amenities to enhance the aesthetics and livability of a development with higher density. These housing projects should only be allowed in the areas currently zoned to accommodate them. This ensures that high-density developments are not adjacent to the rurally zoned areas.
