Council’s Corner: Keeping up with Growth

We are growing…and in more ways than one.

For example, Midland Square and West Roy is nearing completion. The project involves about 80 townhomes and 2.5 acres of commercial property yet to be developed.

The council also recently approved a rezone property at about 1900 W. and Hinckley Drive. This rezone will allow for about 80 townhomes to be built on the north Roy border. It is the intent of the mayor and council that these projects will add affordable housing to our community.

In addition to these residential home unit projects, the city also has several commercial projects in the works, including the recently announced Cajun Seafood and Bar, which will be built next to the Ocean Mart grocery store. Other commercial projects set for Roy include the new Fast Signs building on 1900 W. and the recent purchase of the old Firestone building. The next several years will be a challenge as work draws closer to widening 5600 S. That project will include a new freeway interchange for Roy city. Despite COVID-19, the city has experienced a growth in its sales tax revenues by 8.6%. The hard job will be to balance the growth with that same community feel we have all become accustomed to over the years. Roy is growing.
