Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r By Kirk Hunsaker

We just finished our Orchard Day celebration and had great success. I want to thank our generous sponsors, vendors and countless volunteers. We appreciated our Orchard Days committee and city staff. None of this would be possible without them. Our celebration gets bigger every year and we look forward to improving with that growth.

We are excited to announce that we are nearing the completion of the revised Parks and Recreation Master Plan. We look forward to the future including new parks and recreational activities. As the city grows, we will invest in larger soccer fields, trails and other recreational opportunities to our residents as well as surrounding communities.

Our growth is phenomenal here is Santaquin. In fact, we are one of the fastest-growing cities per capita in Utah County. We issued 125 building permits in 2015 and are already at 97 building permits halfway through this year. We have exciting things planned for our community. We are lucky to have a city council that is excited for growth and welcomes opportunities that come our way.

Our waste water treatment plant has been a huge success. It has helped supplement our water supply and saved us from water restrictions here in Santaquin. However, we always recommend that our residents are wise with water usage since we do live in the second-driest state in the country.

I have been mayor since 2013 and I am still amazed at the citizens that call Santaquin home. They are some of the best in the county and are the heart of our great city. I am so thankful to the city staff, police department and fire/EMS responders that work tirelessly to serve our citizens. Santaquin is small but strong and we anticipate a prosperous and bright future.
