    It appears to me that the environmental extremists consider it to be a wetland if a horse has urinated there at any time during the past 150 years. "And they have records from personal observations to prove it!"

    This sounds very much like SLC methods to flaunt the other laws in their path. Preplanned fraud. This city will pass seemingly meaningless laws in preparation of future means to violate other established laws and accomplish their crime before anyone even new they were shot in the head. Knowing they are going to commit a crime they pre-establish legal means to subvert the laws to perpetuate their criminal plans.

    Clever criminal acts, and note to that they always quote a law they invoked the previous years to revoke and protests they new would happen.

    SLC has done this many times for many years and it is an infamous tactic they have perfected. The art of politics to cover up criminal intent.

    I live basically right next to where this is going in. People are crazy to call this a wetlands. Its barren land that is an eyesore. Putting in a soccer park has to be an improment over what is there.

    Thats right mr 2 cents, everyone who works for SLC is trying to find ways to break laws, even writing new laws just so they can break them. Give me a break. SLC went through the permit process with the Army Corps of Engineers and got their permit. If the permit was issued in error, it falls on the Army Corps, not the City.
