City Council looks at new city boundaries; some citizens upset
By Debbie Lamb
"All these people who get what they want, it's not fair," said Jill Blotters, who because of her neighbors, is a citizen of North Logan instead of Hyde Park like Blotters would prefer.
"The proposed boundaries would run up 3100 South to 60 East," said Mayor Mark Daines.
The boundary would continue south for roughly 300 feet east to 400 East. The boundary would then jog south and meet at the south side of Pine Meadows Subdivision. It would then run east to Floyd Krebs land and north to 300 North. It would then run east to 1200 East and then north for a block, and continue east to 1600 East and south to 200 South and continue east to the mountains.
"This is ridiculous, I don't know whey they just don't draw a straight line," said Blotters in reply to the proposed boundaries.
Both cities have made changes to the boundaries, said Mayor Daines, because of people who have preferences of being in the city of their choice.
If people have a preference of which city they would like to be in they need to make it publically known, said Frank Ashcroft, one of the members of the city council in charge of Planning and Zoning.
If the public does not let the council know before the boundaries are in place there will be nothing we can do for them afterwards.
The City Council also voted unanimously to help implement a trail in North Logan, Hyde Park and Smithfield similar to the Wasatch Trail along the Wasatch Front.
This trail would be placed on the foothills of the mountains.
There would be no motorized traffic; only biking, walking and horses will be allowed said Dave Rayfield, the plan designer. It would serve as a buffer. In case of a fire the trucks would be the only traffic allowed on the trail, he continued.
The Council ended with business such as the discussion about the need
for a new mower and Junior Jazz and soccer sign-ups will be over the
next two weeks.
