I’m writing this Letter to the Editor because the article in the November 30th issue of this Newspaper on our “Dwelling dilemma” (moderate income housing) warranted a response.

Utah’s Moderate Income Housing Program was first implemented by the Legislature in 1996 (originally Utah Code 10-9-307). It’s only been in the past few years that the State required the cities to annually develop Program plans and report to them on such. What has not been required is an effectiveness measure, but that will change in 2023. Our City will then need to report to the State to “identify a clear correlation between the specified municipality’s land use regulations and land use decisions and the specified municipality’s efforts to implement the moderate income housing strategies.”

Please be aware that Cache Valley Publishing does not endorse, and is not responsible for alleged employment offers in the comments.
