Planning Commission approves gravel pit rezone

There was a packed room at Thursday night’s meeting of the Logan Planning Commission and loud applause broke out when the planners eventually approved a rezone in the northern part of Logan referred to as the “gravel pit” area. The rezone requested by residents of the Hillcrest neighborhood is at the intersection of 1200 East and 1400 North of approximately 30 acres south of 1400 North to 1500 North from the current Mixed Residential High to Neighborhood Residential Eastside. The vote came after the original property owner, Pat Hancey, told the commission that at the time the property was sold it was agreed it should continue to be a place for single family homes. Several people spoke out about the fact that Logan is running out of land for single family homes. People at the meeting said there is not a need for university high-rise housing because the enrollment at Utah State University is not increasing as fast as the university’s regional campuses. The vote was unanimous.
