The Geneva Steel Plant
There is so much happening at this site for the future. One interesting thing is that they tried to sell the land to build what become the Rio Tinto stadium here, although they decided to build it up by Sandy. Part of the land was recently cleaned up and is going to be developed (for plans click here). Utah Valley University is looking to expand their campus and wants to buy a chunk of the area, mainly for intramural fields (the article can be found here). Vineyard will eventually be a stop on Frontrunner, and UVU's two campuses would be easily connected by the Frontrunner stations (the other station will be located on Geneva Road near University Parkway. There are plans to build an underpass for 800 South to cross I-15 which will make access to the station really easily). Stay tuned for more info at what happens in Vineyard.
