WVC Dedicates Promenade at Fairbourne Station

Di Lewis

August 3, 2012

The promenade at Fairbourne Station was dedicated and opened Thursday morning, launching what West Valley City officials hope is a continued revitalization of the city.

“As you know, some cities are pulling back, but West Valley City is moving forward,” said state Rep. Tom Huynh, who is from West Valley.

Mayor Mike Winder said the Fairbourne Station project should add to the pride people feel in the city. Fairbourne Station is a planned mixed-use development in downtown West Valley, including a hotel; retail, residential and office space; and a community park area.

Times are still tough for the city, Winder said, but it is still better off than many areas around the state and country. Fairbourne Station is “about the future and it’s about the progress we’ve made and continue to make,” he said.

Stephen Smith, architect at GSBS Architects, said the goal was to create a public space as a foundation for future development. To witness that vision coming together is exciting, he said.

Seeing people at the dedication and ribbon cutting using the promenade as it was designed is gratifying, Smith said. “As design professionals, that’s really what it’s all about. It’s about people.”

“Wiggle walls” throughout the promenade show parts of the area’s history, which Smith said was built to connect people with the past while taking them into the future.

After Winder spoke, kids from West Valley performed the ribbon cutting by running through the ribbon into the promenade.
