Alternative Park Site UPDATE for WDC Impact
The Mayor and City Council wanted to address some of the false and misleading statements put out by some on various social media sites regarding the City’s intentions towards the Bangerter Farm site located on 650 West.
Mr. Bangerter requested and was granted by the City Council on May 1st an Agricultural Protection Area (APA) designation for this parcel. The City hopes the Bangerter Family continues to farm their parcel for many years to come and wishes them continued prosperity. How long the Bangerter’s will farm their parcel will be primarily up to them, based on the APA designation they received.
The City has met with UDOT officials and directed them to pursue an alternative park site other than the Bangerter parcel. UDOT is required by Federal law to replace the 1100 West Park being destroyed by the future West Davis Corridor (WDC). The alternative site location will not be discussed nor disclosed by the City until UDOT has met with those property owners and started those condemnation proceedings. The City has asked UDOT to quickly move forward on this process for the sake of all involved.
Some have also asked for copies of the statement the Mayor read in the recent public hearing and the following link is provided so that folks may access that information.
