Re: “School's Out

Those who live around the Granite HS property do not want a Walmart in their back yards. We are totally open to commercial venues on the 3300 side of the property but do not want a Walmart, and rightly so. A Walmart will not attract home-owners. It will lower the home values of the surrounding houses. I find it very unlikely that the "proposed" new homes will sell in the $300k range. That would be great but highly unlikely.

The developers have not been forthright from the very beginning. They have continually changed what they want to do on the property. They have not even submitted a formal plan to the city. They were asked by the city council to provide traffic study last month. Garbett said it was underway and they'd have it in two weeks. They next meeting came around and they didn't have it because they said they had to have an actual plan submitted to get a study. Again, another untruth.

Until Wasatch/Garbett provides a formal plan to the city, the council should not even consider changing the Master Plan.

And when it comes to the square footage of the proposed Walmart they only need supply the sq footage of the sales floor. Therefore, a 40k sq ft store is actually much large than that. It does not include the parts of the building that are not used for retail sales.

Another example of square footage manipulation is a 4'x 4' parking strip with a tree. One would think that it is 16 sq. feet of green space but that is incorrect and more like 200' sq ft. The vertical growth of the tree and the canopy will be included to compute the square footage.
