Enhancing downtown is a high priority for Logan Mayor Craig Petersen. He says he, along with business people and other city officials, have been looking at different ideas on how that could be best done.

On KVNU’s For the People program Wednesday, the mayor said he agrees with those who say it would be good to have more residential housing in downtown Logan.

“If they live there then they take more advantage of the services,” said Petersen. “This also revitalizes the downtown. We’ve got a number of ideas to try to bring some housing downtown. It would probably be relatively upscale housing that we’re talking about.”

The mayor said he had a meeting with downtown business owners a couple of weeks ago to explore various options. He said when it comes to the issue of parking there was no consensus about whether or not more parking is needed.
