WASATCH COUNTY, Utah (AP) -- While an Arizona developer wants to incorporate a town he intends to call Aspen, Utah, some potential residents say if they had it their way, the community would never incorporate.

Dean Sellers wants to turn an 8,366-acre section of unincorporated Wasatch County into a world-class community and ski resort similar to Park City, Vail, Colo. and Aspen, Colo.

But some residents of what Sellers wants to call Aspen, Utah, are upset about the prospect of becoming part of Sellers' town.

Sellers filed his petition for incorporation with Wasatch County on Nov. 8. Some residents say they worry about the impact a new town could have.
