Logan mayor wants welcome sign to be more than ordinary

There has been much discussion about a new welcome sign at the south end of Logan. On KVNU’s For the People program Thursday, Logan Mayor Randy Watts said this will not be an ordinary sign. Watts said a lot of money has already been spent protecting the wetlands in the area.”We don’t have an entrance coming in from the Valley View,” Watts said, “or coming in from Logan Canyon or coming in from Smithfield to Logan. We have this main entrance coming in from (Highway) 89 and my view is if we spend the right money with the right consultants to make sure we have a good product when it’s done, because it isn’t just a sign. “It’s how are you going to landscape around it, what is the proper lighting, what else can you enhance this to really make it say, ‘gee, I’ll tell you what, this is really an amazing entrance into Logan.'”Watts also defended the city’s plans to borrow $1.5 million from the Light and Power Department to upgrade the Logan River Golf Course club house. He says it should bring in revenues through the various kinds of events that can be held there, such as weddings and golf tournaments.
