Before the meeting adjourned, a detailed discussion was held on the progress for obtaining state-owned land to the west and north of the Utah State Hospital for housing. The board has been negotiating with the governor and other state officials to obtain land for low-cost family and elderly housing units. HUD funds were to have been used to subsidize rents for low income families and elderly people. John Chamberlain, city redevelopment director, advised the board that it is doubtful that the state will give the city a large part of this property. He indicated the state might be willing to provide some smaller parcels for low cost housing. He also indicated that the state probably will not make a decision on the matter for some time. Mr. Chamberlain did say, however, that the state is actively investigating the city's request for the state-owned land near the hospital.
