LAYTON — The city and the Davis County School District will partner in construction of a two-lot subdivision in a newly rezoned tract of land near the Layton Parkway on the south end of the city.
The city council voted unanimously on June 7 to approve a preliminary plat for a two-lot subdivision on .73 acres of land at approximately 401 Weaver Lane. The land is currently vacant.
Because of the size of the project, a preliminary plat can serve as the final document that meets the approval of both the Planning Commission and City Council, according to Bill Wright, director of Community and Economic Development.
With the approval, Wright said the school district can now initiate the groundwork to build two new homes as part of the district’s construction curriculum.
“They will be high-quality homes that will add to the neighborhood.
They will begin construction of these homes upon your approval and get ready for students in August,” Wright told council members.
One of the lots is over 10,000 square feet while the other is over 17,000 square feet, according to Wright.
The city acquired the property as part of the Layton Parkway project and went through a two-month process to get the land rezoned from an agricultural zone to an R-1-8 single family residential zone.
