MANTI—The Manti City Council has approved another subdivision in the vicinity of the Manti LDS Stake Center, where more than 60 other lots for upscale homes have been developed in the past five years.
At a meeting Oct. 20, the council approved a plat for Phase 2 of the Foothills project. The plat shows 22 lots on about 12 acres east of the stake center between 600 and about 750 East. Union Street will be extended, become the main street through the subdivision and terminate in a cul-de-sac.
The development will be the easternmost subdivision on Manti’s east bench. “It ends at the mountain,” Kent Barton, city manager says. Land beyond the cul-de-sac is wildlife habitat owned by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.
The council approval means the developers, Addam and David Brouilette of True North Development Co., can start extending Union Street and putting in utility lines. They will need to get final approval of the improvements before starting to sell lots.
Barton described Phase 2 as a “mirror image” of Foothills Phase 1, located on an approximately equal-size parcel immediately south of the Phase 2 site.
That development has 20 lots running along the two sides of a new street designated as 70 South. All of those lots are sold, and most have homes on them, Barton says.
The Brouilletts own additional land north of their Phase 2 property that could accommodate another 40 homes.
If all the lots now on the books, plus the 22 lots in Foothills Phase 2 and up to 40 lots in the developable land north of Foothills Phase 2, are developed, the activity could translate to 125 additional homes in east central Manti. Nearly all the home prices are $300,000 or more.
Barton says the growth shows there is a demand for high-quality developments with good-size lots, curb, gutter and sidewalk.
