Things are happening in North Logan, like the Hungry Games where patrons can earn points and get prizes by dining at the city’s roughly 10 culinary establishments. Of course there are many activities, too, at the North Logan Library which has again been the home of the 25th Street Community & Farmers Market on Saturday mornings.
On KVNU’s For the People program on Tuesday, Mayor Lloyd Berentzen said it’s been exciting.
“Not just the library but I think there’s some really innovative kinds of things that seem to be happening within the city. I think part of it’s due to the culture of the city, the influences that are there help promote that kind of forward thinking.
“It’s fun to be a part of that, to see some of those programs come to fruition and I’m really grateful for those that have been very creative in helping to do all that work too,” the mayor said.
He said the city is getting bigger with an estimated population of about 11,000. And with the growth comes challenges to make sure they’re preparing for it in the most proper way, so that it’s quality growth.
“With that, some of the brainstorming has been, ‘let’s create a city center that is really something that can be for the community that is there for all ages.’ As we’ve been brainstorming through that we’ve talked about developing a facility that would not only house maybe a future library at some point in time, but also a children’s museum and maybe some sort of Black Box theatre that would have a large cultural hall that could be utilized there.”
He said this could be surrounded by a park-like area that could be the home for the popular Pumpkin Walk and other activities. Berentzen said Green Canyon High School has been a nice addition to the city and he applauds the high school and school district administration for working through challenges and having it ready to go for this fall. He also praised those who worked long hours in the continuation of 200 East to become Wolf Pack Way in front of the school.
