NORTH SALT LAKE -- City officials may simply say no to requests to use a local park for soccer tournaments in the future, following a weekend event that accentuated traffic and parking problems on the west side of the city.
Councilman Stewart Harman said traffic generated by a 10-team soccer tournament at Legacy Regional Park over the Labor Day weekend was so bad that parking spilled over into local subdivisions.
City officials took a few minutes during a recent work session to discuss the issue and floated the idea of simply saying no to such tournament events in the future. Several wondered what local benefit is generated by the tournaments.
Mayor Len Arave also wondered about possibly directing some parking to Woods Cross to an industrial park. He also asked City Manager Barry Williams to contact Gary Uresk, city administrator for Woods Cross, about the potential option.
