Quigley closure is no surprise

Over the past four years, we have all been privy to the efforts made by David Hennessy and his company in attempting to develop Quigley Canyon. The Hennessy Co. has worked hard and made countless concessions to the city of Hailey in pursuing development approval. The project would create success for the city of Hailey and the Wood River Valley. Developing Quigley Canyon provides both the short- and long-term economic stimulus we desperately need in our valley—jobs, new residents, tax revenue, increased property values and countless other direct and indirect benefits.

The Hennessy Co. has a stellar reputation in our community for the projects it has developed and for giving back through its time and resources. Many have spoken about the enjoyed privilege of using Quigley Canyon that was provided by and paid for by the Hennessy Co.

Mr. Hennessy has been very open to all of us about his intent to close access to Quigley Canyon should they not proceed with development. Yet, somehow we continue to think it is our right to access this private property. Instead, I would say, thank you, Mr. Hennessy, for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful land.
