City Council tours Holladay Village site

(Cottonwood/Holladay Journal) City officials are one step closer to revitalizing Holladay’s downtown area as results from the ongoing road construction become evident. The anticipation for a booming Village Center is growing.

City Manager Randy Fitts and City Engineer Clarence Kemp took the city council on a walking tour of the construction zone and progress of the Village Center during a break of the July 16 city council meeting.

“You guys are going to leave a huge legacy,” said Fitts to the council. “This is going to be amazing down here.”

Significant work can be seen on the extension of Laney Lane to intersect with 2300 East. Construction of wider sidewalks also helps the vision of a walkable, downtown area from city hall leading to Murray-Holladay Road. Other modifications include the burial of power lines and improvements to Murray-Holladay Road, 2300 East and Holladay Boulevard.

“Just picture 50 years from now, the city council members and a city manager will look at this place and say, ‘There used to be power poles here,’” said council member Pat Pignanelli.

Several upgrades for the downtown area will include granite paver accents, decorative street lighting and landscaping. The plans call for the abandonment of a section of Holladay Boulevard between Laney and Murray-Holladay Road to make way for a pedestrian plaza.
