KAYSVILLE -- Should Kaysville voters be asked to vote on whether a new library and swimming pool complex should be built?
The city council will discuss the issue during a special meeting June 22 at 7 p.m. in city hall. A $7 million bond is being considered to pay for a new library/museum/art gallery, as well as build a swimming pool.
The library, housed in the old city hall, covers about 6,000 square feet. However, officials say it is too small to meet existing needs, plus ongoing growth in the community. Several plans for a new facility have been studied. It could feasibly be built on the city hall block or on the old Clover Club site. However, no final site has been selected.
A new pool has been discussed off and on for the past several years. The city currently has no swimming pool.
No decisions will be made at the meeting, which is open to the public. The council is set to discuss the issue further during its July 6 meeting, determining if it should be placed on the November 2 general election ballot.
For more information call 546-1235.
Layton OKs Home Depot
LAYTON -- The Layton City Council granted preliminary approval last week for Home Depot to build a store at approximately 440 North Main.
A spokesman for Home Depot said his company would like to open its doors for business by the end of January.
City staff indicated the company must tackle some development issues before final approval would be granted including a letter from the Utah Department of Transportation indicating its approval of an intersection at 500 North and Main Street.
The city would also like to see the widening of streets adjacent to the property.
City officials are also awaiting word on agreements with adjacent property owners for extensions of water lines, sewer lines and detention ponds for adequate drainage.
