Spanish Fork waives rule, allows tiny lots

SPANISH FORK (Deseret News) — A city ordinance requires that residential lots be at least 6,000 square feet, but the Spanish Fork City Council waived that requirement Tuesday simply because it liked developer Steve Maddox's planned subdivision.

The 50-foot required width was reduced to 40 feet, with just 10 feet between houses. Maddox still must go through several other steps before his 100-home Bella Vista subdivision near 900 North and state Route 51 receives final approval.

His target market, Maddox said, are folks moving up from living in condos and twin homes. The plan is sandwiched in between the highway and the railroad tracks.

The homes will range in size from 1,550 square feet to 1,700 square feet without basements. Homes with basements may reach 2,500 square feet, Maddox said. The community will have a homeowners association and a 3-acre park.
