SHARE SPORTS COMPLEX WILL BE `BIG DEAL’ IN KAYSVILLE FOR STATE CENTENNIAL

The beginning of Utah's centennial is less than three months away, and Kaysville is looking to have at least one large project to commemorate the event.

Mayor H. Arthur Johnson said he'd like the new sports complex at Barnes Park on 200 North to be the city's centennial project."I'd like to see us really build that up, make it a big deal," he said.

Johnson also has already planned a softball challenge tournament for the park next July and invited staffs from other nearby cities to participate.

However, Johnson said he has noticed that the parking lot at Barnes Park is already inadequate. For Saturday youth football games, cars are having to park on 200 North.

"I was amazed," Johnson said of the crowd he saw for just one game.

He said the city needs to look at developing its other planned parking area at the north end of the park sooner than expected.

Johnson would also like the city to have more fireworks than usual for the Fourth of July celebration in 1996.

"This will be a great year," he said.

Kaysville has planned a city history day, cemetery tour, centennial ball and a flower show for the 1996 Centennial.
