    Controversy over a parcel of land near I-15 and Deer Valley Road mounts as Supervisor Ron Roberts pursues a new hearing for Merriam Mountains, according to the North County Times.

    The proposed nearly 2,700 home development project already went before the County Board of Supervisors in early December. Supervisors deadlocked 2-to-2, with Roberts absent.

    Opponents say the project will disturb the tranquility of a neighborhood they love.

    Those in favor say the development would bring a lot to the area including a shopping center and walking trails.

    Supervisor Roberts did not indicate whether he supports the project, but he does support another hearing on it.
