Save Beaver County v. Beaver County is a February 2009 ruling of the Utah Supreme Court. The high court's decision overturns a lower court ruling. In its February decision, the court says that Beaver County must schedule a county-wide vote before allowing a planned resort development to proceed.

In 2007, the county entered into a land-use agreement with the Mount Holly Club resort for a $3.5 billion resort. Some residents of the county objected and using Utah's local referendum rules, collected signatures to force the agreement to the ballot.

Beaver County election officials challenged the signatures on the veto referendum and a lower court agreed with the county's denial of the referendum. The state's Supreme Court rejected the lower court's ruling. The long-delayed election will be held in November 2009.[1]
