I live in a very small town in northern UT. Population is about 3000. The city fathers have been fairly responsible about controlling the growth in the area. Providing water is one of the major concerns that has helped control growth in the past. But it seems that more and more people who have ventured into the world and made their fortune are wanting to come back now and retire here. A lot of the farmers are getting older, and their children have no interest in staying on the farm. The farms are relatively small and there is not a lot of potential for earning a good comfortable living. The kids are going for education and moving away. So it seems that some of the older farmers are cashing in on the development craze to pad their retirement. Frankly, I can't blame them.
