The city of Coalville has received $1.5 million from the Utah Permanent Community Impact Board to go toward its Main Street overhaul.
The 20-year, zero-interest loan will enable the city to complete its project by 2009-four years earlier than previously anticipated.
The project includes repaving Main Street from 150 South to the Chalk Creek Bridge, installing new curbs, gutters, sidewalks, pedestrian ramps, street lights, benches and landscaping.
The Community Impact Board awards grants and low-interest loans to communities impacted by mining and extraction of oil and natural gas on federal land.
Water conservation seminar for HOA’s and property managers
A special seminar to address water usage on lawns will be held Aug. 14 from 2:30 to 5 p.m. at Sheldon Richins County Building in Kimball Junction for homeowner’s associations, property managers and professional landscapers.
The seminar, titled "LAWN is a four-letter word," is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the city, the Park City Board of Realtors, Recycle Utah, water companies and others concerned entities.
Limited water supplies are creating an urgent need to find alternatives to water-needy turf that dominates many landscapes in Park City. The seminar will give advice on finding alternatives, as well as how to reduce water bills and update irrigation systems.
Conservation will be promoted as a civic duty, a way to reduce costs, and an important aspect of managing city water rates. To make a reservation contact the Park City Board of Realtors at 200-6900.
For ideas and specific advice, organizers are encouraging people to bring a photograph of a grassy area of concern.
