Important Meeting Thursday

As reported in the last couple Huntsville Town Council and Huntsville Planning Commission meetings, the Town recently completed the purchasing of the vacant property where the old Valley School stood.  The purchase was made possible by the combination of a Federal community development block grant (CDBG) and a bank loan.  The grant made this important acquisition possible, but requires the building of a new Town maintenance building which will replace the dilapidated current facilities. Approximately 2 acres will be used for this purpose, leaving over half the total area available for other uses.  Removing a part of the road between the park and school property to blend them together better and provide more usable acreage has also been discussed.

Potential uses for the available acreage that have been suggested include:
  • Multi-use sports field (soccer, lacrosse, football, baseball, etc.)
  • Performing arts complex
  • Cluster of commercial buildings for shops/restaurant adjacent to the current downtown area
  • Assisted living facility
  • Stage/outdoor music area
  • Weber Pathways trailhead station

The Town Council will be sponsoring a public meeting on February 2, 2012 at 6:00 PM at the Weber County Library, Ogden Valley Branch to solicit inputs from residents/developers on ideas for the development of this land.  Anyone interested in learning more is encouraged to attend.  
As always meetings are your chance to provide your inputs prior to any usage decisions being finalized.  Please consider attending, or contacting any of your council/commission members and participating in the process!!

July 4th Volunteers and Donations needed
The Huntsville Independence Day Celebration has long been a tradition and family homecoming of sorts for not only Huntsville Town residents, but residents from the entire Ogden Valley and beyond.  Two important aspects always make the celebration a success: volunteers and donors.
If you would be generous enough to donate your time or your money, then please contact Councilman Max Ferre at 745-3098 or any of the council members.  With your help, this year's celebration of our Nation's Independence will be the greatest yet.

Freezing Temps = Frozen pipes
If you have a second home or a business that has water pipes that are not used regularly, then beware.  Due to the cold temps and lack of snow to blanket and insulate the ground, your pipes are at risk of freezing.  In fact, we found our first frozen pipe yesterday at a vacant home in town.
We strongly suggest that you leave a faucet running with a trickle of water to prevent your pipes from freezing.
Ice Rink Open
The ice rink is open and in good condition.
As always, voluteers are always welcome to assist with the rink.  Work on the rink usually takes place in the evenings after 9 pm or so.
