Mount Holly Club resort referendum vote, 2009
|Not on Ballot|
| This measure did not or |
will not appear on a ballot
The Mount Holly Club resort referendum did not come to a vote on November 2009, regardless of a February 2009 ruling by the Utah Supreme Court in Save Beaver County v. Beaver County for voters in Beaver County.
In 2007, the county entered into a land-use agreement with the Mount Holly Club resort for a $3.5 billion resort. However, several Beaver County residents collected approximately 845 signatures to challenge the agreement and move the agreement to the ballot. The county proceeded to challenge the signatures. The lower court agreed with the county and dismissed the signatures, however, the state Supreme Court reversed the ruling. The referendum was scheduled for the November 2009 ballot.
According to the Salt Lake Tribune, the County filed a notification of default against the project's main developer, Mount Holly Partners LLC. Developers owe approximately $69,000 in fees for improvements said Leo Kanell, Beaver County deputy attorney. According to reports the developers said that they blame a "national economic slowdown" for their setbacks.
