HUNTSVILLE -- Officials invite the public to comment on proposals for the old Valley Elementary School property in the center of town.
The public hearing on ideas for use of the property will take place at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Ogden Valley Branch of the Weber County Library, 131 S. 7400 East.
"We're seeking public input on what to do with the property," Mayor Jim Truett said.
The property is across from the Huntsville Public Library and near businesses such as the Huntsville Barbeque Company.
Truett said land for the school was originally donated by the community. The school occupied the property for about 70 years before moving in 2009 to Eden.
Now that the town has reacquired the land, it is busy working on a new development to go there. Truett said several possibilities have been considered -- all meant to benefit the community -- including an assisted living, a senior center, a recreation center, a dining and theater facility, a place for new town sheds or expanding the park.
Officials are currently looking at a village concept, Truett said. The concept would maintain the historic look of downtown, with architecture similar to other buildings in the vicinity, such as Huntsville Barbeque Company.
The public will be able to see renderings of the current proposal.
