BATC and City of Logan – Small Land Exchange for Sidewalk
The City of Logan is designing and implementing a revised intersection for the corner of 1400 North and 600 West, Logan, Utah. The project will widen the intersection and will add traffic signals. In order to complete this project, the city needs to acquire a small strip of land from each of the property owners on all four corners of the intersection. When approached to purchase the land, BATC proposed a similar arrangement for this intersection as the one on 1400 North and 1000 West, Logan, Utah. BATC would provide the small strip of land in return for a sidewalk from the intersection to the west and another sidewalk from the intersection to the south, which would create a safe place for students to walk. The City of Logan agreed to the proposal.
Included for your information and review is a copy of the proposed intersection. The section highlighted in yellow represents the land the project needs from BATC.
Action: Recommend approval of the Small Land Exchange for Sidewalk.
