Voters conflicted over new zoning code for West Layton Village

Election » Vote will decide whether to keep or scrap district that could create space for homes, stores, offices, trails and parks.

But others believe they are heard. Speaking for Residents for West Layton Village, Chad Harward said at last week’s meeting that the new zoning district will provide more options for residents, including those who are downsizing and want to stay in the community.

"This vote is a simple choice," Harward said. "You are either OK with current development styles of box commercial surrounding neighborhoods or you would like to try something new with smaller commercial in the center surrounded by a variety of housing options, kind of like a town-square model that is called Village Center Code."

What’s next

Layton residents will cast ballots in the Nov. 6 general election on whether to uphold or overturn two decisions by the City Council that created a Village Center zone at 2200 West and Hill Field Road.
