Lehi, Draper and Highland in land war over Micron

LEHI (Deseret News) — City leaders in Lehi, Draper and Highland are fighting a land war, each city wanting computer giant Micron Technology Inc. to annex property into its respective city.

The 158 acres in question are split into two island-like pieces of unincorporated Utah County and are surrounded by Draper to the north, Highland to the east and Lehi to the west and south.

Micron owns nearly 2,000 acres in the area, a portion in Lehi, more in Draper and a chunk in unincorporated Utah County. Its IM Flash NAND memory plant (a joint venture between Micron and Intel) is in Lehi at 1550 E. 3400 North. Micron approached Lehi about the annexation.

In a meeting with Lehi city leaders earlier this year, Micron officials said they want all of the company's land in one jurisdiction. That could potentially mean de-annexing hundreds of acres from Draper. For now, Micron officials are working on a master plan for company property with Lehi city staff.
