He has served one term as mayor of what he calls “a wonderful community” and now Shawn Dustin is running for a second term as the mayor of Nibley.
Dustin says he is anxious for people to be as pleased about coming to and living in Nibley in 20 years as they are at the present time. He says it is not just because good people live there, but because others want to come where there are good values and where land and water are planned and used wisely.
So what does Dustin see as his biggest challenge? He says the state is talking about putting a traffic light at the intersection of 1000 West.
“It gets kind of complicated,” Dustin exclaims. “What that means is because that light is going in at 10th West and with some development going on in Logan, Nibley has to respond to that.
“What’s going to happen is that light on 10th West is going to open up a corridor that goes all the way from the state highway, Highway 252 and Highway 89, down to JBS in Hyrum.
“So what that means is that 1200 West, which heretofore has been only a residential street, is going to be carrying a lot of, what we believe, heavy traffic.”
He is a civil engineer and believes he can help make sure that project is handled appropriately so their children will be safe, that the streets will be safe and it will not be a dangerous thoroughfare.
