Connector Road

Provo, UT: (Jan-29-08) The family of Newell Johnson brought a lawsuit against the city of Provo, over land belonging to the family that was being used by the city. The Johnson family owned part of the land used for the 4800 North connector road between University Avenue and Canyon Road. Sources stated that the legal battle over the value of the land has lasted more than five years, with several court battles and Utah Supreme Court appeals. Records show that the Newell Johnson family was originally offered $289,000 for the property, but an agreement could not be made. Although the family would not sell the land for the offered price, sources stated that Newell Johnson was willing to sell for what he believed was a fair price.

In a recent development, a verbal agreement was reached between the city and the family of Newell Johnson for $1.16 million for the two acres used by the city. The settlement price also includes money for damage to the remaining property. [HERALD EXTRA: CONNECTOR ROAD]
