Today's word on journalism

North Logan P&Z discusses park possibilities

By Melissa Salcedo

December 6, 2008 | NORTH LOGAN -- The Planning and Zoning Commission met Thursday night to discuss possible uses for an office park.

The land, five acres at 1625 N. 200 East, is surrounded by multi-family housing and commercial property.

Jack Nixon, who is the owner of the 200 East Office Park, wanted the commission's input for some alternative uses for his land. Initially, he wanted to use his space for office and retail, but decided to go in another direction. Now, he has ideas for higher density housing and one or two commercial offices. The property is close to Wal-Mart and other shopping amenities, so that will hopefully attract people to live there. Student housing is also a possibility because of how close to campus the property is.

Housing was the main idea that the commission focused on. Commission member Glen Hansen suggested a park be built on some of the property because there isn't one around the area.

No final decisions were made, but Nixon will continue to weigh his options.

The next Planning and Zoning meeting will be Jan. 8 at 7p.m.
