TBD Rattlesnake Road, La Sal, Utah, 84530
The Rattlesnake Ranch in La Sal, Utah, is a 485-acre parcel of land located about 30 miles southeast of the booming resort town of Moab, Utah, near Arches National Monument. At 6,600 feet in elevation, La Sal is higher and cooler than Moab, and much closer to the nearby La Sal mountain range. This particular property is located on the western edge of the very small town of La Sal, and has excellent development potential. Access is very easy via a paved state highway, and a gravel county road bisects the property. The land is very flat, with the exception of a small canyon and reservoir on the southwest corner of the property.
This property has high potential for solar energy development, given that there are several high-tension power lines just to the west of the property. It is a flat parcel with very easy access and higher elevation that means more intense solar gain. There is practically no timber to clear and the site would be very easy to place into solar energy production. A 3-phase power line runs along the northern border of the property.
The Rattlesnake Ranch has a fairly sizeable reservoir on the southwest corner of the property, half of which is actually on BLM lands that border the property to the south and west. Recreation use for hunting, horseback riding, ATV riding, and shooting is very accessible. Moab, Utah, which is a hotspot recreation destination for rock crawler Jeeps, mountain biking, rafting, hiking, and sightseeing, is only 30 minutes to the north.
Just like the resort towns of Aspen, Park City, and Telluride, Moab is suffering for a lack of employee housing. This property is very large, has excellent access, power, and water wells can be drilled. It has high potential for employee housing for the many workers who can no longer afford housing in Moab.
