Message from Mayor Dandoy

“With school now back in session and children filling the sidewalks and streets, I would ask that you keep a close eye on them as you drive.”

UDOT’s 5600 South Road project is progressing. The project will include a new I-15 interchange, the widening of 5600 South to five lanes, intersection improvements, and a new trail system. Currently, right-of-way property acquisition is underway, primarily on the south side of 5600 south. Construction is expected to begin in the summer of 2023, with a completion in the fall of 2025. If you suspect your property is being impacted, please reach out to the project team at 385-383-6576 or 5600south@utah.gov. You will find more information on the city’s website under COMMUNITY.

If you have lived in Roy City for even just a few years, you already know of the Roy Day’s celebration. From the Miss Roy Pageant in July to the first weekend in August, the city helps sponsor and/or provides a variety of activities that culminate into a wonderful fireworks display. Thousands of hours go into planning and execution of all this summer of fun. This year’s Miss Roy Pageant and Roy Days, like so many past years, was a delightful and successful series of events. I would like to personally say thank you to city employees and volunteers who worked tirelessly to create another incredible sequence of experiences. Each of you brought moments of joy into the lives of so many. Well done!

With school now back in session and children filling the sidewalks and streets, I would ask that you keep a close eye on them as you drive. Our dedicated crossing guards will be there doing their part to keep children safe, but they need all of us to stay focused and not let distractions create a dangerous situation.
