Village Center plans dividing Holladay council

(Cottonwood/Holladay Journal) The roads in the center of Holladay are slowly opening up and the resident’s anticipation for a multi-use plaza, complete with clock tower and water feature, are growing, though the plans are not unanimously supported by city council members.

After four years of power line burials and road construction, including curb and gutter, Councilmember E. Barry Topham wants to hold off on voting for Village Center plans until after the Nov. 3 municipal election to see if a new council would be elected and weigh in differently on the project.

Topham said that after talking to many people during his campaign for mayor, the plan of the 81-unit apartment complex to top the retail element of the Holladay Village was not a popular one.

“People are aghast,” said Topham.

Cowboy Partners President Dan Lofgren presented plans opting for luxury apartment living in the center of Holladay to attract healthy retail stores into the area, but Topham said he does not envision the Village Center as the gathering place described by Mayor Dennis Webb and his counterparts.
