Utah Lake islands project is rejected by state officials
SALT LAKE CITY — Utah’s Division of Forestry, Fire & State Lands has formally rejected a controversial proposal to clean up Utah Lake by dredging it and building islands and bridges on it.
In a formal decision released Thursday, the state division blocked the proposal from moving forward. The formal record of decision, obtained by FOX 13 News, found the proposal would “not pass constitutional muster and be detrimental to the citizens of the state of Utah.”
“Earlier this year, a state lawmaker told FOX 13 News he was considering a bill to rename Utah Lake to “Lake Timpanogos,” in honor of the Timpanogos tribe that settled here before Mormon pioneers moved in. Rep. Brady Brammer, R-Highland, said it was also his hope a new name would erase a stigma of mistreatment surrounding the lake.”
