Sitting on 60 acres, this neighborhood in West Weber, Utah will be surrounded by walking trails, botanical gardens, a senior assistive living center, an agricultural education center, and a grocery store advertising organic produce. A portion of the community will be set aside as open space, a key attribute that is treasured by Utah residents. The purpose of the 4-year project is to bring citizens back to the small community. Terakee Village will be the first of its kind in UT, although others like it are popping up across America. The first phase of construction is set to begin the summer of 2017.
From this new neighborhood, it is a short drive to the local Green Acres Pumpkin Patch, or All In Stitches Embroidery Shop. The Weber River and close-by mountains also afford recreation opportunities. Additional parks, such as Windsor Farms Park, are surrounded by beautiful neighborhoods. This particular park is rated as a very nice, quiet, clean locale.
