SALT LAKE CITY — Residents of Val Verda, an unincorporated part of Davis County, met Wednesday night about the annexation of their neighborhood into North Salt Lake. 

Val Verda is just south of Bountiful and east of Highway 89. It is surrounded by Bountiful as well as North Salt Lake.

Davis County Commissioners voted in support of the annexation last week.

That means the city now has to hold several public meetings, then the North Salt Lake council will vote on the issue.

If it’s approved, the city says the annexation would go into place on January 1. Property taxes in the area will also go up.

But the ultimate decision will come down to the city council, who will likely make the decision next month.

Diana DeLuca lives there and is not supportive of the plan, partly because of the property tax increase.

“It concerns me that that might go up for different price range homes, up to $70 a year. But see, that’s what we’re told — we don’t know what actually will occur.”
