Randall Jeppesen reportingEagle Mountain leaders are hoping to bring a university satellite campus to town.

City estimates show Eagle Mountain at around 23,000 people. But with little commercial development, city economic director Ifo Pili feels that's about to change. "We've had a lot of visitors, ranging from retailers to wholesalers to hospitals," he said.

The city is in talks with UVSC about putting a satellite university campus in town. Pili says if that happens, it could be the boost bringing in everything else residents want. "Bowling alleys, a CineMark; We want and need just about everything out here," he said.

Pili says plans for a grocery store are moving forward, which has been one of their No. 1 needs.
