DEFENDERS OF GREATER IVINS
ALLIANCE FOR SENSIBLE DEVELOPMENT IN IVINS
We are an alliance of concerned citizens advocating for balance in responsible economic growth and supporting the vision of the community to preserve the health, safety and quality of life for all Ivins residents.
We believe this balance is attainable through advocacy and empowerment of the community, and by fostering a culture of open dialogue, mutual respect, and collaboration between residents and city leaders.
We are Defenders of Greater Ivins, DOGI.
A 113-acre parcel of undeveloped desert land in Ivins, UT owned by The Utah Schools and Institutional Trust Lands Administration (SITLA). SITLA has entered into an agreement with developers to build out this property with a portion of the parcel rezoned for high-density, multifamily residential and another portion rezoned to Resort Commercial which would allow for approximately 250 Short Term Rentals (STRs).
Defenders of Greater Ivins (DOGI) believe the development of the SITLA 120 land, as proposed by the developers, is not consistent with responsible economic development, because the information and research DOGI has obtained and conducted has led DOGI to conclude that the proposed development will diminish rather than enhances the health, safety and quality of life for Ivins's residents.
