Local residents head off gravel pit proposed near Capitol Reef NP

A gravel pit proposed near Capitol Reef National Park won’t be mined under a deal reached Thursday between Teasdale residents opposed to industrial development in their historic town and Utah trust land officials.

A group affiliated with the owners of Red River Lodge, which runs cattle on the land, offered $525,000 for the 120-acre parcel overlooking the Fremont River. At its monthly meeting, the School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration, or SITLA, accepted the offer in a 5-2 vote.
