Ground to be broken soon for Hill AFB's Falcon Hill

HILL AFB (Davis County Clipper) — Ground was symbolically broken just over one year ago for the mammoth Falcon Hill project at Hill Air Force Base.

One year later, however, there’s still little to see at the public-private partnership, between the federal government via Hill Air Force Base, and Sunset Ridge Development Partners.

There still is hope, however, that construction will begin before year’s end.

“It’s been moving forward, but things like this take time," said Rick Mayfield. He’s executive director of MIDA, the Military Installation Development Authority created by the state to coordinate this and other similar public/private developments.

“With the U.S. Government involved, they have to go through a couple of layers to get things approved. That takes a little more time,” he said. “The sheer size, number of entities involved” also add to any time frame. “It’s probably a month or two longer than we thought it would be, but I think we’re moving along at a good pace.

“I think in the next month you'll see dust turn,” the former Davis County Director of Community & Economic Development said.

That scenario was basically mimicked by Eric Castle, Air Force project manager.
