De r Mr . Denne:
Iwt! . ,
Thank you for your letter of r arch 20 . Please excuse
my d lay but I have been in the field . Our pamphlet was
stimulated bV he Logan Canyon road improvement project but it
was intended to have broader implications . uite obviously,
there was a direct connection and a direc im act .
There was no public resistance to the first strip of the
construction work. Th ~ re was concern by the fish and Gar e
Department , the Forest ~ ervice and this Univer sity . The publ c
could not be stimulated until construction actually beg8n .
During the one-year period of construction and during the planning
stages of the second phase, the public did gXP es~ concern through
the pre~s and resolutions from private organizations . Frankly. the
public reaction was lead by professional 0 sons interested in land
It is difficult at this point to mako an appraisal but I think
it is fair to say that the attitude of highway plannors has and 1s
Perhaps not as far as we ltlDuld like, but progress 1s noted .
The design for Logan Canvon is being modified and there ore cartaln .
other evidences that more consideration will be given to ~th8r
resourceS . This change in attitudes, however, will not take the
place of adequate legislati on • .
Dr . Theral R. Black of our Department of 'ociology rec nt1y
dellv red a paper entitled 'Tho Impact of Highways Upon oCiety's
Spacial Living rrangements with Special Emphasis to Utah's Wawatch
Front Count! 8 . II Thio is a fine and internstlng presentation . r"'ay

I hope th s answers you questions . I would lik~ to be advised
of when your book is complete .
