It seems as if summer just started and is in full on heat mode, but we are only a couple of weeks away from the beginning of the school year. This always makes me feel as if my summer is slipping away. We have started many projects that I am sure you have noticed happening around the city. It is amazing how many things are happening on a daily basis here in our city. Here is a partial list of things that are going on.
The new Trigon C-store has opened on the corner of Rulon White Blvd. and 2700 North. Check it out!
The new Free-standing ER to be located at 600 West 2700 North is under final plan review.
The new Capstone Charter School located on Highway 89 is in the final construction phase and plans to be open for this school year.
The City received a grant from WACOG for $152,000 to finish the intersection at the top of 500 West and construction there should be wrapping up shortly.
The City is working on multiple grants to secure funding for Skyline Drive.
The City will be starting construction of restrooms at the new multi-sports park located on Hwy 89. We received a $200,000 RAMP grant to make this possible.
Storm water work on Pleasant View Drive between 1100 W and 1375 W has been completed.
The 2018-19 road repairs are well under way.
The “Safe Schools” sidewalk project along 2550 North leading to Wasatch Elementary will be completed and ready for the school year.
The fencing of the Little Missouri spring source protection area is underway.
Many more smaller projects are under way to improve parks, sidewalks, ADA accesses, storm water, and other areas.
Lastly, it has become necessary for the City to close access to the trailhead at the top of Cottonwood Drive from the hours of 10:00 pm – 5:00 am. This has become somewhat of a party spot and this action is necessary to protect this sensitive area.
Once again, thanks for caring, thanks for all you do, and thanks for being good neighbors. I am committed to doing whatever it takes to ensure that we remain the best place to not only grow up, but the best place to grow old.
Mayor Leonard Cal
