(KCPW News) The Cottonwood Heights City Council has said no deal to Terry Diehl. The developer and former board member of the Utah Transit Authority was hoping the city would re-zone his property for the Tavaci development at the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon, so instead of building single family homes there, he could turn it into a high-density resort. But in a unanimous vote last night, the city council rejected the re-zoning plan. One group that’s celebrating that decision is CHVoters, which has campaigned against the controversial development plans for years. Roger Kehr, who owns a lot on Tavaci, sits on the steering committee for the group. KCPW’s Jeff Robinson asked him if he was surprised by last night’s vote.
