Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) Little Cottonwood Canyon (LCC) Draft Environmental Impact Study (DEIS) Update! 

We would like to start off by saying THANK YOU to anyone that signed the petition to Gov. Cox and UDOT asking to extend the comment period on the UDOT DEIS, submitted a comment to UDOT, and contacted their local elected officials. 

Along with a BIG thank you to those who have helped by consulting, sharing, discussing and debating these comments. Truly hundreds -- thousands of people helped make these possible, in a variety of ways.

Save Our Canyons exists to be an advocate in the many issues that face the Wasatch Mountain Range. Organizationally we’ve had to take a defensive stance on development in the Cottonwoods since 1972. We’ve had some great wins for the health of this valued landscape, as well as some lasting losses. For us, protecting the Wasatch Mountains isn't a radical idea, but developing and exploiting Little Cottonwood Canyon for two private businesses is!
