(KSL News) -- Dozens of Riverton residents speak out about the proposed development of hundreds of acres of farmland.
At the heart of the debate, two proposed developments both east of Bangerter Highway. One between 118th and 126th South... the other around 134th south.
Developers want the City Council to re-zone 325 acres of land in that area to allow high density housing, commercial property, parks and schools. But people who live there say developing the land would change the peaceful way of life they have now.
Riverton resident: "I urge you as a city council, first let the planning and zoning commision hear it, second make a recommendation to you, get a credible study for traffic. Next determine what's going to happen with Bangeter Highway that will impact this property before you make a decision."
A vote is scheduled for next Tuesday.
