What happens when you build a lot of homes in a rural area without the proper infrastructure and no transit service? You get what is happening in Saratoga Springs and Eagle Mountain and that is traffic problems galore.
While Eagle Mountain has used New Urbanist style designs in their homes, it still does not overcome the fact that the area is rural and not ready for a major suburban development.
While adding the sales tax will get the cities limited Utah Transit Authority bus service, it does not solve the basic problems of large developments were the infrastructure is not designed to handle the amount of traffic it now has.
