Fruit Heights may soon be landlocked.
According to Fruit Heights City Planner Jeff Oyler, the city has about 100 developable acres left, which translates into about 300 homes before the city will be built out.
Currently, 10 to 15 percent of the city’s budget comes from building permits, which would disappear with no developable land.
As a result, the city council is looking closer at their budget.
Mayor Todd Stevenson said the city is taking the necessary steps now to make sure their budget funds are self-sufficient in the future to alleviate any need for large tax increases.
