What's Up?


Q: What was the outcome on Proposition 400 to establish a provisional community college district? The Roundup didn’t print that last Friday.

A: The results of that ballot question and the other local education issue whether the Payson Unified School District should participate in a joint technological education district or JTED were printed on page 12A of the Friday, Nov. 8 Roundup.

For those who missed it, both measures passed. Prop. 400 took 66.8 percent of the vote in winning 6,883 to 5,334. The JTED question was approved 2,969 to 1,656, garnering 64.2 percent of votes cast.

Q: How is Boomtown coming? It would be such a wonderful thing for Main Street and all of Payson.

A: Boomtown, the Old West town-themed shopping and entertainment complex under development on Main Street is in that phase where necessary plans, permits and rezonings are being developed and obtained.

One event of note is a public hearing at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 19, at Payson Town Hall.

“They’re going before planning and zoning to change the zoning from residential to commercial,” Karen Greenspoon, Main Street project manager, said. “I don’t foresee any problems, so then it will go to council in December for approval. It has to go through several readings with the council and then they can get started.”

The complex is planned for a 2.84-acre site at 207 W. Main St.
