Utah's Initiative One

The city of Bluffdale City has preserved this 30-acre parcel with help from a state open space fund. Backers of Initiative One believe much more land could be protected from development if voters approve it on November 2nd.
Dan Bammes

Salt Lake City, UT – Both opponents and backers of Initiative One on Utah's fall ballot agree that protecting open space is a worthy goal. They disagree on whether state bonding for $150 million dollars and increasing the sales tax to pay back those bonds is the right way to do it. KUER's Dan Bammes looks at both sides of the debate over Utah's Open Space Initiative.
