Developers want to build in the Sherwood Hills area of Wellsville Canyon.

In a three to two vote, the Wellsville City Council voted to approve preliminary plans for the Bridle Path Estates project located at approximately 7625 S. Highway 89/91 to move forward. The motion included an understanding that no pasture watering would be included until further study could take place and that water monitoring would take place for culinary and ground water sources.
