A city where most of the residents aren't old enough to drive is looking to provide more ways for the children to play.
Eagle Mountain city is only 11 years old. The median age of the residents there is only slightly older, at age 13.
"We definitely need more activities for the kids to do," said city spokesperson Linda Peterson.
She says after several years of lobbying by teenagers, the city is building a skate park. A bike park also is under construction.
"We do have many other parks plans in the works. It's a huge part of our budget this year," she said.
She says trying to provide recreational opportunities for teenagers is a big deal in a city this young. The city also is looking at the younger children - toddler-aged -- since the city is experiencing a baby boom.
