KAYSVILLE - The Utah Department of Transportation is planning an overhead pedestrian signal at the intersection of Main and Center streets here.

On Feb. 18, Kaysville City Council members approved a resolution that would convey 112 square feet of property from the southwest corner of the city block to UDOT for the base of the signal.

When built, the signal will flash yellow lights when triggered by a pedestrian.

At last week’s meeting, the council also moved closer to an agreement with Terra Basin LLC, to sell 15.1 acres of land at 200 North and Flint Streets. City leaders have announced that there are plans for a Smith’s Marketplace at the site.

They are also working with local taxing entitles to get approval on interlocal agreements that would allow for the establishment of a community development project.

If approved, 50 percent of new taxes generated by the development would go to the city for 15 years, to allow infrastructure improvements such as water and sewer lines, and a traffic signal.

Mayor Steve Hiatt addressed the Davis School Board last week, seeking support of the largest taxing entity.

The land currently generates around $2,000 in taxes annually for the school district. When fully developed, it could bring in as much as $144,000.
