Camp Williams, surrounding cities seek funding to avoid encroachment By Morgan Jacobsen Deseret News (UT) Octobert 24 2014SALT LAKE CITY — Noise, light and vibrations are just a few reasons not to live near military training grounds. Housing development, however, is getting closer and closer to Camp Williams.
In fact, some developers in the area use the camp as a selling feature for prospective homeowners looking for a view with open space, according to Maj. Gen. Jeff Burton of the Utah National Guard.
But it isn't just the prospect of being nuisance neighbors that has Guard officials worried.
"The problem is there are homes right up on the border of Camp Williams already over in the Rose Canyon area, which has got a lot of combustible material, (like) oak brush," Burton said at a Veterans and Military Affairs Commission meeting Thursday. "When fires do start … now that there are houses so much closer, the response time for firefighters is much reduced before those fires get to housing areas."Camp Williams, surrounding cities seek funding to avoid encroachment
