Logan and North Logan continue to work towards boundary change

<strong>NORTH LOGAN–</strong> The City Council unanimously passed a resolution Wednesday to change a common boundary between Logan city and North Logan. The council will hold a public hearing to discuss the proposal on June 5.

Kirk Jensen, director of Logan’s economic development, presented financial estimates as a result of the trade at Logan Municipal Council meeting on Feb. 19. Jensen said that North Logan would have a net increase of 146 total acres, which represents $2.5 million in real property value. As a result of the 20 businesses that would be involved in the trade, Logan would gain in net tax revenues roughly $13,000 per year.

“As far as developable land goes, it has been suggested that North Logan gains 141 acres in this exchange,” Mayor Lloyd Berentzen said. “A lot of it is not actually, but I think a fair amount is.”

Berentzen also said Logan City Council approved a resolution with the exact same wording in their last meeting, and Jeff Jorgensen, city administrator and engineer, informed the council that Logan has scheduled a public hearing on the issue at the end of May.
