LAYTON -- City leaders have granted final plat approval for a parcel of property on the city's east side, which is considered a geological challenge.
The city council recently voted unanimously to give final plat approval to the Jensen Homestead project at approximately 2600 East Gentile Street.
The project outlines a plan to potentially build a two-lot family subdivision on sensitive land. Sensitive land is property which requires a professional recommendation that it can handle the impact of a building.
The property is less than a mile away from an area on Sunset Drive where five homes slid off a hillside in 2001.
The lot is located near Holmes Creek Irrigation Pond on a bend in the road, close to Highway 89.
Councilman Barry Flitton wanted to make sure the geotechnical report would be given to any prospective buyer of the property.
Bill Wright, director of community and economic development, assured Flitton the documents were public documents and the plat will be properly noticed, in order to ensure any prospect developer knows what is required in developing the property.
