Here is an updated view of the destruction of Steep Mountain in Draper- known to many as "Point of the Mountain", a one-of-a-kind world class flight park for hang gliders and paragliders. It is also the iconic skyline of Draper, as well as Sandy. It is quickly becoming more and more of an eyesore, and more importantly a health and safety risk as the mining moves closer to homes, expelling more silica dust into the air.
Please visit SaveSteepMountain.org for more information. We would really appreciate it if you could take a moment to sign our petition to stop the mining of Steep Mountain. The petition, in a nutshell, is asking Salt Lake County officials to arrange a "land swap" with Geneva Rock Company, sparing Steep Mountain from the mining activites. The Save Steep Mountain group is not out to stop Geneva Rock, just to facilitate them taking a different, less popular piece of land. Geneva Rock officials have expressed interest in this, so we NEED this petition to get the County officials involved and make this happen!
Thanks for watching, signing, and saving Steep Mountain.
