PROVO, Utah (AP) -- The Highland City Council is the latest group reconsidering how much green residents need to have in park strips.
Residents complained that the requirement that the strips contain 75 percent green plants is just too much to ask in a climate as dry as Utah.
The city's planning commission voted unanimously to recommend the council reduce the amount of green required to 50 percent.
The council is expected to take up the issue in the coming weeks.
