Image via WikipediaClearfield to reveal alternate plan to UTA
For those of you that had the pleasure of spending time at the Clearfield Front Runner station, you should ride on the UTA bus routes that services the station. You will enter a large swath of parking lot. Do a couple of tight maneuvers and arriving at the station with very little to attract people to.
UTA proposes to change this and make it a vibrant new transit oriented development. However, some in Clearfield apparently are worried that too many new residents would come and their little city will be overwhelmed. Therefore they are coming up with their own development plan that will most likely do nothing to enhance the area around the station and basically create another poorly designed suburban development.
In fact, Clearfield should be looking forward to having some life shot into it. If you ride the 470 along State street what you will see on both sides of the street is a town that is dying. It seems that the city council of Clearfield has their heads in the sands about the future of their community.
Sorry, I don't have much faith in what the Clearfield city council will come up with.
