Derek Dowsett is the Producer of the County Seat. Now entering his 4th season of the program, he has received what he considers a "Crash Course" in County Government. Derek is passionate about access to public lands, Rural Utah and State's Rights.

Many cities in Utah were built from the same plan originating 187 years ago, the Plat of the City of Zion. This week on the County Seat we met with representatives from Jones and Demille to talk about the process behind community planning.

Highlights:

• What ideals make a great community?
• When does a community involve a community planner?
• How do you balance private property rights within a plan?
• How has the planning process changed?

ABOUT THE COUNTY SEAT: The County Seat is a public affairs program about the functions and issues of county elected officials and county government in UTAH. The County Seat is designed to provide the essentials to being an informed and engaged citizens in what we view as the most important level of government to daily life, county government. Topics range from the life of a ballot to the wild horses on public lands. The majority of Utah’s 29 counties are rural with a concentration of urban issues along the Wasatch Front. This dynamic lends an interesting twist to the show where we highlight a number of rural issues that the majority of Utahns may not be as familiar with. #CountiesMatter #CoutySeatS10E17
