AMERICAN FORK, Utah (AP) -- American Fork officials are trying to protect one of their newest pieces of property from damage by all-terrain vehicles, motorcycles and litter.
City officials say parts of 20-acre Mitchell Hollow have been torn up by vehicles.
The city bought the open space several years ago with the idea of giving residents a place to enjoy wildlife and a natural environment.
Since the damage was reported, city officials have installed signs at several entrances stating that vehicles are prohibited.
The area has also been littered with garbage. City Engineer Andy Spencer says people have also dumped old refrigerators, couches and grass clippings in the hollow.
