Spanish Fork puts the park back in North Park

(Daily Herald) Spanish Fork City isn't waiting around any longer for the stagnant building market to perk up before making progress on at least a portion of the North Park development. By summer 2010, the city hopes to hand over to the public at least the park part of North Park, a business/recreation project that has essentially been in a holding pattern since its 2007 approval.

The old North Park was torn up in the fall of 2007 with the idea of reconstructing it alongside a new 500,000-square-foot retail development. Westfield Development was to construct both the new park and the retail area, with the city reimbursing the cost of the park. Home Depot was the only company, however, that officially hopped on board before the bottom dropped out of the construction market, and Westfield's plans for North Park were suddenly frozen.

Rather than wait on Home Depot, which can do little more than sit on its 10 reserved acres for now, or future rumored tenants, such as Best Buy, Target and Chili's, Spanish Fork administrators decided to move forward with North Park's recreation area and surrounding infrastructure by contracting the work themselves.
