(KSL News) The Heber City Council last night approved zoning changes that could allow big-box stores like Wal-Mart to be built in Heber. The city gave the OK for zoning 70 acres of mixed-use development.
Some residents are against allowing large retailers in the quiet mountain town. One hundred families living in a trailer park on the future build site would have to move.
The group "Put Heber Valley First" has turned in nearly 1,600 signatures of Heber residents for a voter referendum. If successful, residents could overturn the ordinance in a citywide vote in November.
