Sp. Fork proposes amending land’s use

SHARE Sp. Fork proposes amending land’s use

SPANISH FORK — City planning staff has proposed changing the general plan on the east side of town to a more "free-flowing" use of land, city planner Emil Pierson says.

The Planning Commission will review the amendment on Wednesday that could change the use 74.55 acres in the vicinity of U-51. The proposed changes in the document that guides development could allow either residential or office-commercial uses, Pierson said. While such uses could be next to each other, they won't intertwine. Dubbed the Christensen General Plan Amendment, it is a precursor to a proposed annexation that will include land where the city will move manufactured homes from nearby Spanish Fork Ranch.

The city will move the homes from atop a reclaimed landfill as a mitigation effort after the site developed methane gas problems and garbage began resurfacing. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in City Hall, 40 S. Main St.
