Olympia Hills development under negotiation again
HERRIMAN, Utah — Developers are now proposing a new, scaled-down version of the controversial Olympia Hills development near Herriman.
The original plan for the high-density project was torpedoed by community members last year. Neighbors said they were concerned about traffic and all the other problems that could happen by introducing 30,000 more people into a high-density development.
The new plan includes a 6,300 unit mixture of housing, apartments, shopping and workspaces, just less than the original plan. The new project would include about 2,000 fewer units than the original as well as a traffic study, plans for new roads and a series of public meetings to gather input.
The Salt Lake County Council could have a vote to approve or strike down the new plans within weeks. Currently, the project has been submitted for zoning approval and awaits continued negotiations.
