LOGAN – The Logan City Planning Commission will be holding a public hearing on Thursday, September 12th to review a proposed 75-unit apartment complex. The project, referred to as the Mill Creek apartments, would be located on the corner of 100 South and 100 West in Logan. It will occupy the site of the old V1 gas station, also known as Grizzly Station, and extend south along 100 West to the canal.
According to Logan City’s Community Development Director Mike DeSimone, the apartment complex will vary between one and two-bedroom units on less than 1 acre of land and is being proposed by Jared Nielson of Mill Creek of Logan LLC.
“It will be three to five stories in height,” DeSimone explains. “It will have two levels of parking on it and it will help clean up that corner right there.”
That site had also previously been proposed as a future location of the Logan City Library. The city engaged in talks with the land owner, and former city councilmember, Eugene Needham to use the site for a multi-level library but those negotiations failed after public outcry.
The apartment proposal is somewhat similar to another project just a block to the east near Garff Wayside Garden at 150 South 100 East.
“The underlying projects are similar in that they are providing residential housing in downtown,” DeSimone said. “Process-wise they are the same. They go to the Planning Commission for design review. I think the underlying zoning was changed as a result of Garden Park (apartment proposal) and that whole process early on.
“So, we’ve gone back and evaluated the zoning and determined this site, specifically where that old V1 gas station is, is appropriate for residential uses.”
The proposal near Garff Wayside Gardens, now referred to as L59 apartments, includes a 120-unit multi-family apartment building, 10 town homes, and surface parking areas and received a conditional use permit in May.
The Planning Commission meeting begins Thursday at 5:30 p.m. in the Logan Municipal Council Chambers.
