Copperleaf Subdivision in the valley of Wapiti. The land was sold to the developers by Bob Model, then president of the Boone and Crockett Club. Elk had been using Model's property as winter range and forage. Model had reportedly been offered money from a conservation group, but apparently was not enough. During subsequent hearings on Copperleaf, neighbors protested that there wasn't enough water, or capacity for sewage next to the Shoshone River, to support a big development. For years after the Commissioners okayed the development without a legal water supply, the water plans were in court, still uncertain, even as the two first homes were built. At one point, Copperleaf representatives called KTWO's news director, to try to convince him not to allow Penny Preston to cover the story. He reviewed her coverage, said it had been fair, and allowed her to keep doing stories.
