Study in the works to bring new life to older business district on 3500 South

(West Valley Journal) The West Valley City Redevelopment Agency Board authorized a study to determine if there is enough blight at Granger Crossings, a business district on 3500 South from the I-215 overpass to Redwood Road, to establish it as a redevelopment project area so it can get a needed facelift.

The study was contracted to Bonneville Research, although Mark Nord, West Valley City business development manager, said he’s confident the findings will determine Granger Crossings a perfect candidate for a RDA due to the age and condition of many of the buildings. Following the results, the approval of the Granite School Board is required since those tax dollars go into the RDA for a period of 10 to 15 years to support the redevelopment.

City officials have met with the business owners to obtain feedback about the possible RDA. Nord said they have all been optimistic even though property owners are often leery about their property being deemed as blighted.
