SARATOGA SPRINGS, Utah (AP) -- Saratoga Springs has finished annexing a 2,800-acre tract of land in the heart of the city owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The Daily Herald of Provo reported the land will be home to a new city hall, library and major retail development. City offices are currently housed in a rented retail unit.

City officials say the commercial complex will include big-box retailers, a movie theater, restaurants, amphitheater, parks and a walkable Main Street.

The LDS church will oversee development of the plans and will eventually sell all the land to private developers.
