  • NORTH SALT LAKE (Davis County Clipper) — The Eaglewood Village project site may look like a ghost town, but that doesn’t mean the development is dead.

    Though the construction equipment and several of the signs that had camped at the old gravel pit site all winter have vanished, North Salt Lake Mayor Shanna Schaefermeyer said both absences are just the marks of spring cleaning. City officials are still in talks with Compass Development, which is still trying to secure enough capital to move ahead with the project.

    About two years ago, he proposed building a three-story European-style mixed use development. It would feature retail shops on the main level and housing for the upper two floors.
