CLEARFIELD, Utah (AP) -- The Utah Transit Authority is considering revising its plans to develop 70 acres of land adjacent to Clearfield's FrontRunner commuter rail station.

Clearfield officials say the proposed development would increase Clearfield's population by 8,000 to 10,000 residents -- or 30 percent -- without adequately offsetting the impact of that many new people.

UTA's master plan calls for more than 3,000 residential units, parking and 700,000 square feet of commercial and office space. But city officials say the UTA didn't plan for schools, churches or open space.

UTA real estate director Steve Hansen says he plans to get city personnel more involved to address their concerns.
