More Reasons not to visit Kanab

It seems that one developer in Kanab will capitalize on anything, including ancient Anasazi ruins located on a site he plans to develop into 700-800 homes...but he'll preserve 20 acres of open space for an active archealogical dig among the new homes. Does anyone else feel slightly uncomfortable about this?

Not knowing much detail about the story, my first reaction is, yes, I am uncomfortable about this. We should protect our heritage.

At the same time, I think the property owner should be compensated for the property that he will not be able to use.

He must have known they were there to begin with...why should he be compensated for his own purchase?
