(West Valley City-AP) -- West Valley City is serious about getting the Hogle Zoo to move in.
City leaders met last night to discuss acquiring a piece of land along the Jordan River that they thing would be a good spot for the zoo. If the city is able to lease one piece of land from the power company, it would extend the proposed zoo site to about 100 acres.
Hogle Zoo is currently in Salt Lake City, east of the University of Utah in the mountain foothills.
But West Valley City is saying it would even build the zoo a new access road to the river property. Lack of an access road was one of the factors cited when zoo officials concluded that they should stay put earlier this year. But they're re-examining the issue now.
