At Tuesday’s meeting, the applicant backed down a bit, asking for a work session before the Morgan County Council voted again on amending the future land use map amendment that could make way for a new resort on the north end of East Canyon Reservoir.

“What was presented before was not appropriate,” he said. “Things need to be looked at. Conservation easements need to be looked at.”
