Utah High Court Disqualifies Citizen Referendum

The Utah Supreme Court rules that a citizen referendum attempting to overturn a rezone was not appropriate.

"The Utah Supreme Court dealt a blow last week to a citizen effort to take a controversial commercial development to a public vote...The project is seen as one of the biggest developments in Riverton's history and includes many big retail outlets, such as Wal-Mart. In several public hearings, many residents packed gymnasiums, protesting the move as an attack on their rural lifestyle."
