Eagle Mtn; Nolan Park Splash Pad

"Eagle Mountain is looking to double a planned splash pad.

The city will spend $180,000 in the spring to build a splash pad -- a zero-depth water feature that children can run through and cool off during summer. In a recent meeting, elected officials voted to authorize the city to apply for a matching grant from the state. If awarded, the grant would effectively allow the city to double the size of the splash pad, adding extra water features and amenities.

The splash pad will have a western theme and will be built at Nolan Park, the location of the city's annual Pony Express Days celebration, she said. The Pony Express will be part of the western theme. The splash pad will compliment adjacent baseball and soccer fields."-Daily Herald

Eagle Mtn: Residents To Decide On Pool Bond

"Eagle Mountain residents will decide Nov. 2 if they want to borrow money to add an aquatic center to a citywide park.

The city is seeking voters’ approval on a $7 million bond for an outdoor water complex at Mid-Valley Regional Park, a mile north of City Hall. The park already includes athletic fields, and will eventually be the home of a new city center.

The outdoor aquatic center would include a leisure pool, slides, a lazy river and a lap pool, along with locker rooms, party rooms, concession space and pavilions. The proposed center is similar to Payson’s water park, both in size and design.

The nearest public pool is at Lehi Legacy Center."-SLTrib

Eagle Mtn: Utah Lake Bridge Plan

"State officials have decided that doing nothing with Utah Lake is not an option at this point.

Instead, the state Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands will further review developer Leon Harward’s proposal for a $600 million toll bridge running from Saratoga Springs to Vineyard.

Division spokesman Jason Curry said the proposal from the Sierra Club and other groups to leave the lake alone was rejected because it lacked economic impact figures."-SLTrib
