West Valley Council to vote on park purchase

WEST VALLEY CITY (Deseret News) — Elected officials are slated to approve a property purchase that would expand Terrace Ridge Park, located at the corner of 6400 West and 4600 South.

The West Valley City Council will vote Tuesday on the proposal to spend $10,000 for about 4,000 square feet of land that was inadvertently left out of the purchase of the park. The money will come from impact fees charged to new development, according to a city staff report.

The park was purchased from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints years ago, and the church has since built a fence and sprinkler system around its building.

The improvements exclude the 4,000 square feet in question. Without the city purchase, the triangle of land would likely be abandoned and become overgrown with weeds, according to the report.
