Former Coalville mayor looking to sell property

Aaron Osowski , The Park Record

Former Coalville Mayor Duane Schmidt, who in early October resigned his post to move to Southern Utah, is looking to sell a piece of property he owns on Main Street.

Cindy Gooch, a planner with JUB Engineers Inc., is in charge of the final plan for the Schmidt Subdivision. The property is located at 23 N. Main Street in Coalville next to the Chevron station.

Currently, there is a house on the property, and Gooch said Schmidt will be separating the property into two lots a front lot right on Main Street and a back lot. Schmidt told The Park Record he will sell off the back lot and retain the front lot as investment property.

Gooch said landowners within 300 feet of the property will be notified of a public hearing for the subdivision. She added that even though this is not an actual subdivision it must go through the subdivision process to be divided. The final plan for the project was approved by the Coalville City Council and Planning Commission and a public hearing is set for Nov. 12.

Schmidt said he has nothing planned yet for the property but said he has had people express interest in it.

"Anything that would be done with it would end up being a better use of the property," Schmidt said.

"It’s in a commercial area, so hopefully it will have some sort of business in it," Gooch said.
