Construction has started on portions of the Bonneville Shoreline Trail (BST) from the existing Diamondback Trail to a future trailhead located on 6600 West. Please avoid this area until construction is complete and the trail has been opened. This trail is funded through an Interlocal Agreement with Salt Lake County Parks and Recreation and will follow criteria set forward by the Bonneville Shoreline Trail Coalition. The plan is for this section of trail to eventually connect to the Rose and Yellow Fork Recreation Area located in Rose Canyon.
A section of the trail adjacent to the future trailhead has had slight alignment changes and will be discussed at Planning Commission on Thursday, April 4 at 7:00 PM. If you have questions about the trail, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Juniper Canyon Recreation Area Public Open House Recap
Monday, March 25th, a public open house was held to share conceptual designs for a premier urban outdoor recreation area, to be located in the southeast portion of Herriman.
Below is a Q&A and a link to the conceptual plans and renderings, developed through the recommendations outlined in the Herriman Hills Open Space Master Plan.
Juniper Canyon Recreation Area Q&A:
Q.) I can’t wait for this! When will this happen?
A.) This project is in a very early design phase and will take years to be built out. The current design will likely go through several revisions based on elevations, slopes, and utility locations. City staff will continue to work with consultants, designers, and engineers to phase out the project and the amenities constructed will be based on available funding and final approval from the City Council and the Planning Commission. Staff hope to start constructing a few basic amenities in the 2019-2020 fiscal year.
Q.) How much will this cost and how will it be funded?
A.) Staff is working to phase amenities in a logical and economical way. The project will be funded from a variety of sources including park impact fees, developer contributions, and grants. The final cost will depend on what amenities are desired and approved.
Q.) Is this area going to be landscaped now? We hate the weeds and fire risk that currently exists in this area.
A.) The majority of the canyon will remain native; however, the improved trails will allow better access for maintenance and mitigation.
Q.) I had heard there was going to be a reservoir in this location. What happened to that?
A.) There was a reservoir proposed a few years ago, City Council determined not to move forward with that plan.
Q.) I’m worried about increased traffic and parking. What is the City going to do about that?
A.) The City will conduct a traffic impact study for this project and will work to alleviate any potential traffic and parking issues during the planning stages.
Q.) How do I submit my questions, comments and suggestions on this project or any other park, trail or open space project?
A.) We appreciate all questions, comments, and suggestions! You can email your comments and suggestions to email@example.com, contact City Hall at 801-446-5323, reach out to your City Councilmember or attend upcoming meetings on the project.

There were two registered earthquakes felt by many in Herriman Friday morning. The 3.3- and 3.7-magnitude tremors have prompted all of us to wonder how we’re doing with our preparedness for a large earthquake.
This is a high-risk area
Utah includes some of the highest-risk areas in the United States for a large earthquake, and especially along the Wasatch Front.
So what should we do to prepare?
Report what you felt
What exactly does a magnitude of 3.7 mean?
This site explains what earthquake magnitudes mean and how they may feel. Magnitudes grow exponentially, meaning each measurement of magnitude is significantly and increasingly larger than the last.
What would a 7.0 earthquake look like in Utah?
It is uncomfortable to think about, but a devastating earthquake is a very real possibility in our area. What would it look like here? Be Ready Utah created this video in 2011 to help illustrate the potential disaster:
