Dear Mr . Beck:
We want to thank the ' Salt Lake Tribune' for the interest
shown in the Logan Canyon Road construction project through your
editor1al pages .
We recognize the need for road improvements In Logan Canyon
and elsewhere . la' are also keenl V aware of the values 0' the fishery ,
recreational and scenic reS,Qurcas and the need for protect1ng these
resources now ~ It 1s entirely possible to develop adequate ·transportation
systems without resource destruction but this requires public
understanding and support and . frequently , additional financing . It
also requires the close cooperation of the agencies involved . Strangely
enough this is a rather new idea 1n road building . There is far more
to b~ considered than the engineering features and designs . It is
necessary to consider these along with the value 0' the ~anyons and
rivers to the community . both from a .social and economic standpoint . We
think progre~s is being made .
'Salt Lake Tribune' has performed a public service bV focusing
attention on thi landuse problem . We appreCiate your efforts .
