Orthodontist in Southern Utah County is Changing Your Orthodontic Experience for the Better! Written by M. Chatterley

Have you been to an

orthodontic office recently?

Kuhni Orthodontic Studio is a new orthodontic office located in the heart of Spanish Fork. It is conveniently located in the Canyon Creek Professional Building south of Macey’s and Costco. Although this location is new to the area, Dr. Kuhni has been practicing for many years. As the Studio name implies, this is not a regular orthodontic practice. You and your family won’t feel like you are being run through a braces mill. This practice was designed with the comfort of a spa, more than a medical office, in mind. With the unique comfortable furniture pieces in the lobby, to the open, clean and modern feel you will find in the up-to-date clinic and technology, the comfort of their guests was of foremost importance when designing the feel of this office. We had a chance to sit down with Dr. Kuhni and see what his approach to treatment is like and why his practice is different than what you might find elsewhere. Dr. Kuhni is a South Utah Valley native. After practicing in Kentucky and Colorado he decided to return to his home area where he is able to serve those he grew up with and loves so much. We asked Dr. Kuhni: How does an Orthodontist’s education differ from a General Dentist’s education? Dr. Kuhni: “In order to become an Orthodontic Specialist, I had to complete over 3,600 specialized hours of orthodontic training beyond dental school. During this time, every one of these hours was focused on aligning the teeth and jaws to allow for the most beautiful smile and facial balance possible, in both children and adults.”

What sets you apart from other Orthodontists? Dr. Kuhni: “I really wanted to create a place where not only straight teeth happen, but beautiful transformations occur. The artistry of orthodontics begins with a vision. I love seeing the potential in every guest and their smile. I really enjoy the artistry of creating beautiful smiles that will last a lifetime. I believe that treatment starts with my guest and their specific goals at the forefront. I believe good communication is key! Communication with my guests about their goals and expectations is why we are such a great fit. With communication, we get to know you as the people you are. We respect who you are and are able to communicate with you about what is best for you! I also believe in education, and with education, we are able to communicate well. I want you to be all in with your treatment and know why and how we are achieving your goals together.” What sets your Orthodontic Office apart? Dr. Kuhni: “When you walk into my office, I want our guests to feel like they’re family. Which, I believe, makes the experience so much more than moving teeth. My team and I love interacting with individuals and families during their treatment as they develop confidence with themselves and their smile. Sharing that joyful day when braces come off is bittersweet for us. We love to experience the amazing milestone, but we are sad that we won’t be able to see our friends on a regular basis because they have touched a special place in our hearts.” What can you expect when you come into your office for your first visit? Dr. Kuhni: “We have a fantastic team who will help our guests every step of the way. Your first visit to the office is one of the most important experiences. We want you to feel relaxed and taken care of beyond imaginable expectations!

The first visit is when our guests make important decisions that will guide their treatment and help determine the outcome. I believe our guests deserve my time to make sure they are educated and understand the options that are best for them. In order to make those decisions, it is imperative that you can see the end from the beginning. I see it as my responsibility to help our guests see the vision with me and then discuss the options of what we can do with you, for you!” Can you explain the up-to-date technology you use? Dr. Kuhni: “We use an array of different technological advances. We only use digital xrays, which allows for much clearer and diagnostic images. Plus, it has less than half the radiation! We also use a high tech bracketing system called The Damon System. I love Damon Braces because, in my experience, it results in faster treatment times with better results as compared to traditional braces. I have also had lots of guests who have had the experience of “traditional braces” and then been in treatment with Damon Braces and they attest to little to no pain. So much so, that they didn’t require any pain medication. The Damon System also works with the body’s biology and can eliminate the need for more burdensome appliances such as expanders/headgears and others. The last thing I love about the Damon Braces is that we don’t need the little colors that go on traditional braces. The research shows that these little color o-ties are like bacteria and plaque magnets. These o-ties make keeping the teeth clean and free of plaque much more difficult. Eliminating the o-tie leads to a much more healthy and pleasant outcome.” We loved our experience in Dr. Kuhni’s office! It is such a fun, yet relaxing place to be. Dr. Kuhni is very competent and all his “guests” love him and his team. Even though this office in newly opened, Dr. Kuhni has been practicing for many years, which was evident with the skill and kindness that he shows to his guests. We are grateful for the time given by Dr. Kuhni and his team for allowing us to learn a little more about what orthodontics should be. Guest centered care with comfort and great outcomes.


CHAMBER PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE We are fortunate to live in a beautiful, vibrant community — a community where city officials, business leaders and residents value the history of the past and the excitement of the future. The Spanish Fork Salem Area Chamber of Commerce is here to promote a vibrant local economy, to produce collaborative business partners and to serve as the voice of business in enhancing our communities. Strong relationships and a commitment to help local business succeed are at the core of our shared values. We appreciate your support and enthusiasm to shop local. As a chamber, we are consistently inspired by our members’ innovation, passion and willingness to serve the great people of southern Utah County. At no time was this more evident than last fall. On Sept. 13, 2018, the Bald Mountain and Pole Creek Fires threatened the communities of Elk Ridge, Woodland Hills and Covered Bridge, and thousands of people were evacuated from their homes. In fact, it was the largest single evacuation for a natural disaster in Utah history. People were scared, homeless and uncertain about the future. I was one of those evacuees. In the midst of the terror, residents in Salem and Spanish Fork offered lodging for those in need. They provided pastures for large animals. And they prayed. At the same time, the business community, without hesitation, brought needed water, food and supplies to more than 100 emergency personnel, firefighters and sheriff’s deputies. Likewise, a donation center for evacuees was set up at the Nebo School District’s Advanced Learning Center in Salem. Many residents and business partners brought much-needed supplies to families in need. The outpouring of love and support was overwhelming. For nearly two weeks, these generous donations not only provided for physical relief, they also provided an emotional relief. We were not alone. Thank you does not even begin to express the gratitude felt toward the citizens of southern Utah County as well as the unselfish goodness of the business community. These are the people we live with, work with and shop with. I look forward to celebrating our businesses this year. We will highlight them with our Business of the Month recognition awards, we will 6 • Spanish Fork - Salem Area Chamber of Commerce 2019

have ribbon cuttings for those who are new to the chamber, and we will partner with them for community events such as the Easter Egg Hunt, the Farmers Market and the Winter Lights Parade. Please join me in thanking them for their willingness to serve in so many ways. Kari Malkovich McKell, Thompson, and Wise President, Spanish Fork Salem Area Chamber of Commerce


PROUD SUPPORTER OF THE SPANISH FORK FIESTA DAYS RODEO!


EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR’S MESSAGE Wow, what a year 2018 was for our community. We have seen amazing growth and heartbreaking tragedy impact our amazing cities. We have seen so many small business entrepreneurs taking up residence here in Spanish Fork and Salem. We have also seen so many larger corporations that chose Spanish Fork as their newest locations. I am thrilled to see our area thriving and growing in such amazing ways. I sometimes look back and can’t believe that this is the same place where I grew up. Last year, at the beginning of autumn, tragedy struck our amazing community in the shape of out-of-control wildfires. Thousands of residents were misplaced from their homes while firefighters from across the nation made their way to our little neck of the woods and struggled to control the Pole Creek and Bald Mountain fires that devastated our beloved mountains. My family was one of the many that were required to evacuate during the fire. I have never been prouder to belong to a community that came together as ours did to support not only the displaced families but also the firefighters who left their own families to come and help save our homes. What an exciting time to be part of such an amazing community, and I look forward to seeing many more great things to come.

ANNUAL CHAMBER SUPPORTED EVENTS Scholarship Golf Tournament Each year, the Spanish Fork Salem Area Chamber of Commerce joins with the Spanish Fork Rotary Club to sponsor a scholarship golf tournament at The Oaks at Spanish Fork golf course. Money raised through the tournament funds college scholarships in the amount of $1,500 per scholarship for students at local high schools. In 2018, the golf tournament raised enough money to provide 20 students with scholarships. This year’s golf tournament will be held on May 8. Students interested in applying to be considered for one of these scholarships should contact their school counselor.

Easter Egg Hunt Thousands of children line up at the Spanish Fork Sports Park each spring for their chance to find eggs filled with candy and prizes as part of the Spanish Fork Salem Area Chamber of Commerce Easter Egg Hunt. The event, which is held each year on the Saturday before Easter at 9 a.m., has become an annual tradition in Spanish Fork with between 3,000 and 5,000 children ranging in age from infants to 10 years old participating each year. This year’s East Egg Hunt will be held on April 20.

Scarecrow Contest/ Main Street Trick or Treat Each October, the Spanish Fork Salem Area Chamber of Commerce sponsors the Scarecrow Contest, a competition encouraging local businesses and individuals to design their most creative scarecrow and put it up for display in the community. Through the contest, 20 to 30 scarecrows are set up along Spanish Fork’s Main Street in the area between Center Street and 400 North, adding fun decorations to the historic downtown area during the Halloween season. The chamber also sponsors the annual Main Street Trick or Treat event in Spanish Fork. Local businesses are invited to participate through handing out candy to trick-or-treaters during the event. Salem City hosts a similar event called the Trunk or Treat, which is held in a parking lot of the activity center and candy is passed out from the trunks of cars.

Winter Lights Parade On the Friday evening after Thanksgiving each year, Main Street in Spanish Fork is lit up with festive floats and wagons as part of the Winter Lights Parade, an event sponsored by the Spanish Fork Salem Area Chamber of Commerce. Businesses, families and other groups participate in the parade each year, with the parade attracting entries such as hay wagons, city floats, horse riding clubs and marching bands. Musical groups also participate, including Christmas carolers, and the parade ends with a visit from Santa Claus who rides through the city on his sleigh.

2018 BUSINESS OF THE YEAR Mountain Country Foods Mountain Country Foods, one of the largest pet treat manufacturers in the United States, has been named the 2018 Business of the Year by the Spanish Fork Salem Area Chamber of Commerce. The Spanish Fork business was recognized during the chamber’s 2019 Installation and Awards Banquet on Jan. 24. Founded by Doug and Carol Ford, Mountain Country Foods has been a family owned and operated company for more than 44 years. In the early 1970s, Doug was managing his father’s food locker business, Ford’s Locker in Provo, when he decided he wanted to branch out into specialty meats such as beef jerky and smoked sausage. Doug and his wife Carol decided to create their own business. In 1974, they formed Smokey’s Smokehouse. Doug and Carol ran the part-time business themselves at first, with Carol keeping the books and delivering Doug’s products to grocery stores and gas stations in Utah County. The business grew, and they began hiring employees. When their first child was born, Carol quit to be a full-time mother. “Now we have over 500 employees and we work 24/7 around the clock and have done for years,” Carol said. Mountain Country Foods currently has two production facilities in Spanish Fork — one at 185 E. 1600 North, which also houses the busi-

Doug & Carol Ford ness’s corporate offices, and the other at 2102 N. Main. A third production facility is located in Okeene, Oklahoma. The business produces both soft treats and biscuits/baked foods for pets. Mountain Country Foods doesn’t produce the treats under its own label, however; rather, they produce the items for other pet food companies with their label. “If you walk in any store such as Walmart, Petco or Macey’s, a lot of the pet treats that you see on the shelves we manufacture in Spanish Fork,” Carol said. Over the years, Mountain Country Foods has gone out of its way to provide exceptional

2018 BUSINESS OF THE YEAR benefits for its employees. The business has a private clinic available to employees and their families as well as an event center that employees can utilize free of charge. Carol said the business also takes its employees on a company-sponsored and paid-for trip every couple of years. Destinations have included Disneyland, Hawai’i and cruises. “Our employees are the most important asset we have,” Carol said. “My husband is very proud that some of his employees have stayed with him for over 40 years.” Outside of their business, Doug and Carol have contributed to the community both monetarily and through service. Doug has served on many community boards and Carol has volunteered in various capacities

for Nebo School District for 34 years. She currently volunteers at Spanish Fork High School. They have also contributed to Nebo School District to support methods to make schools safer. The couple was honored in October as the district’s 2018 Business Champion. Their children are active in the community as well. The Fords have four children; one has passed away. Two sons and one daughter play an active role in the business.

2018 TOTAL CITIZEN OF THE YEAR Kevin Dunn As a prominent business owner in Spanish Fork for about 20 years, Kevin Dunn has always seen his business as a way to help others. “There’s just really so many opportunities out there if people will open their eyes and realize that there’s many needs around us,” said Dunn, who until last fall owned the Big O Tires store on Spanish Fork’s Main Street. The Spanish Fork Salem Area Chamber of Commerce has named Kevin Dunn as the recipient of its 2018 Total Citizen of the Year Award. He was recognized during the chamber’s 2019 Installation and Awards Banquet on Jan. 24. Dunn grew up in Provo and attended Brigham Young University where he met his wife Janell, a graduate of Spanish Fork High School. At college, Dunn specialized in advertising, eventually earning a bachelor’s degree in communications. After their marriage, the couple lived Lake Shore few a few years before a job opportunity drew them to California. Eventually, however, Dunn received a call from RC Willey offering him a job as the company’s advertising director. He accepted and the Dunns moved to Clearfield. After eight years, Dunn left RC Willey to start his own ad agency. One of his accounts was a group of Goodyear Tire stores, all of which participated in the advertising efforts except the Provo and Orem stores. For some reason, Dunn said, the owner of those stores would never advertise with the group. Dunn decided to drive down and have a personal chat with the owner. During their talk, the Goodyear owner said he was never going to advertise and was unhappy in his situation, adding that he would be pleased to sell the businesses and move out of the area. “When he said he wanted to get rid of the stores, I made the fateful statement, ‘That can be arranged,’” Dunn said. With some partners, Dunn purchased the Goodyear stores, which brought him and his family back to Utah County and placed him on a new course in life: the tire business. After eight years with Goodyear, Dunn wanted 20 • Spanish Fork - Salem Area Chamber of Commerce 2019

Kevin Dunn to go out on his own, so he sold his interest to his partners and bought the Big O Tires store in Spanish Fork in 1998. “It was kind of a swerve in the road,” he said. “I just always wanted to be my own boss, I guess, and I am kind of entrepreneurial and I thought it would be a good move. People need tires and service on their cars, so it seemed pretty logical.” Dunn eventually purchased the Big O Tires stores in American Fork and Nephi and built another Big O store from the ground up in Payson. He has greatly enjoyed the ability to help people through his business. Customers would come in with problems he and his employees could fix. “The thing that has always intrigued me since I left the advertising world is it gives you a real chance to help other people, and I just feel like the more you can help other people, help them accomplish their goals or service their cars or whatever they’re trying to accomplish, it comes back to you,” Dunn said. He has looked at running his business as a “win-win-win” situation where everyone — the employees, the customers and himself — benefits. “Ultimately, it comes down to making people happy, serving others. That’s how I look at it,”


2018 TOTAL CITIZEN OF THE YEAR Dunn said. “I wasn’t necessarily measuring success by whether I could afford a boat or not. It was by whether I was making people happy.” His desire to serve has driven him to contribute in ways outside of his business as well. For example, he served for four years on the board of the Spanish Fork Salem Area Chamber of Commerce. “In my four-year involvement with the chamber, I have seen tremendous improvement in my business at Big O Tires because it seems like people in the community respond to those who serve, and as you get to know more and more people in the business community through events like networking lunches and ribbon cuttings and other events that the chamber holds … it’s really a benefit not only to your business but to the community as a whole,” Dunn said. Dunn has made many contributions to high school sports programs over the years and has also supported organizations like Tabitha’s Way, the Food and Care Coalition and the Utah Food

Bank through monetary and food donations. His business has also supported the Utah County Fair and Fiesta Days as a sponsor. Each year, he participates in an effort by a group of local businesses to find a used car, fix it up, fill it with gifts and donate it to a needy family identified by Nebo School District. “It’s so neat to see the surprise and the tears of joy on the family’s face,” he said. Dunn has sold all his Big O Tires stores except the one in Payson and hopes to be fully retired within the next six months. He and his wife have five children and 12 grandchildren, and over the years, all five children have worked in the tire business with Dunn. When asked about his future plans, he said they will likely include service of one type or another. “I’ll probably just keep trying to find ways to help other people,” he said. “That’s what turns me on in life. I don’t think that that’s something that anyone should ever retire from.”

FOOD TRUCK ROUNDUP Weekly food truck roundup planned again this summer After a successful summer in 2018, the weekly food truck roundup in downtown Spanish Fork will continue this summer under the direction of the Spanish Fork Salem Area Chamber of Commerce. The food trucks will be at City Park, 49 S. Main, every Friday evening starting the first week of April and continuing through around Sept. 1. The trucks will arrive at about 6 p.m. and park around the edge of the park, remaining until about 9 p.m. The food truck event came about as part of the chamber’s efforts to host movies in the park and attract people into the downtown area. Food trucks were informally invited to attend. Eventually, the city took over the movies and the chamber took over organization of the food trucks. The events were also moved from Monday to Friday nights. “From there, it just grew exponentially,” said Heather Youd, the chamber’s executive director.

The chamber is working with the Utah Food Truck League to bring a variety of trucks to Spanish Fork. Each week, the league will send a list to the chamber of which trucks are coming that week, and the chamber will post the list on both the chamber and the city Facebook pages. The food truck league also has an app that shows the food truck schedule or residents can visit https://thefoodtruckleague.com. “It’s been really positive,” Youd said. “We’ve definitely had a lot of people comment that they love it.”


CHAMBER OFFICE HAS MOVED Chamber office moves to Spanish Fork’s downtown The office of the Spanish Fork Salem Area Chamber of Commerce has moved from its former location in the basement of the Spanish Fork City office building to a new location at 67 E. 100 North, Spanish Fork. The city had a need for the space in its building, said Heather Youd, the chamber’s executive director, and the chamber is now leasing its new location. The new office is larger than the former location with room for meetings and storage. Other benefits include being located in the historic downtown area and having signage outside that can attract attention. Youd said the chamber is looking at transitioning the office into a visitor’s center where people could stop and obtain information about the community. This would likely require more staffing, but the chamber is examining grant opportunities that could pay for such a transition. The public is invited to stop by and see the new office. It is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

Thank you to all those who serve in one way or another our community. I encourage everyone to take time and volunteer in whatever way

FUTURE DOWNTOWN DESIGN Plan to guide future design, improvements on Main Street Spanish Fork city planners are finalizing a long-term plan that will guide future development and improvements along the city’s Main Street. A study of the Main Street corridor has been completed, and its final recommendations were used to create the plan. The study specifically focused on the character and visual elements of Main Street and the circulation of its pedestrians and motorists. Dave Anderson, Spanish Fork City’s community and economic development director, said adopting the plan doesn’t mean residents will see immediate changes. Instead, as construction and development — such as major utility work or road improvements — take place on Main Street, the plan will be consulted to see if that work provides an opportunity to make the changes described in the plan. “This plan will be consulted and really be used as the basis of any of those projects as they go forward,” Anderson said. The study recommended actions such as adjusting the width of sidewalks, adding landscaping strips in the middle of the road, adding bike lanes and creating new signage. “The intent of the study and the following guidelines is to create a more business- and pedestrian-friendly downtown that entices business owners to stay and redevelop the downtown area,” states the study’s executive summary. “The guidelines provide design concepts and the tools needed for the stakeholders to implement the vision for the future development of Spanish Fork Main Street.” Four possible scenarios were set forth in the study. These were narrowed down to one, and fine-tuning is now being done on that option before it is taken to the Spanish Fork City Council and UDOT for their approval. Anderson said about a year ago, Spanish Fork partnered with the Utah Department of Transportation and Mountainland Association of Governments to study the city’s Main Street. As a state road, Main Street is maintained by UDOT, and 34 • Spanish Fork - Salem Area Chamber of Commerce 2019

MAG is a regional transportation planning group. “In terms of what the future might hold, we really started with fundamental questions about what the road needs to do for UDOT in terms of how much traffic it needs to carry, and what things we as the city would like to see in terms of maybe some aesthetic elements to help beautify Main Street, and things that might be done to maybe reduce the travel speed or to provide better facilities for pedestrians — things that would help people want to be downtown,” Anderson said. Project Engineering Consultants, a firm that conducted a similar study on American Fork’s Main Street, was hired to conduct the study. PEC staff took the various governmental agencies’ priorities into account and collected public input through an open house meeting, an online survey and talking with downtown business owners. “Parking probably will change, but one of the things we really don’t want to change dramatically is on-street parking. Everybody said to keep that,” Anderson said. Two of the most dramatic changes people will eventually see is the widening of sidewalks and the creation of a median down the middle of Main Street with shade trees and other landscaping. Spanish Fork’s Main Street is very wide and completely dedicated to automobiles, which encourages drivers to speed, Anderson said. The good news is that there is room to widen sidewalks and create medians. The plan also describes altering landscaping in some areas and adding new signage and deco-


FUTURE DOWNTOWN DESIGN rative streetlights. “The plan will call for some uniform improvements all along our Main Street corridor that will give it kind of its own sense of place and unique look, which is something that we’re really excited about,” Anderson said. The Spanish Fork Main Street Study is the direct result of another study that looked at ways to improve the downtown area. In 2014, Spanish Fork was chosen to be part of the Community Planning Assistance Teams program offered by the American Planning Association. Through the program, community planning industry professionals spent months conducting surveys, examining comparable downtown areas, conducting phone interviews and reviewing planning documents. This work culminated with a visit to Spanish Fork on May 10-14, 2015, with the planners spending the week working with hundreds of community residents and organizations, merchants, property owners and city officials to determine their vision for the future of the historic downtown area.

In September of 2015, a final report titled “Rediscover Historic Downtown Spanish Fork” was issued by the CPAT containing a list of recommendations for making that vision happen. Those recommendations included considering how to make Main Street safer and more business- and pedestrian-friendly. Both the Spanish Fork Main Street Study and the “Rediscover Historic Downtown Spanish Fork” report can be viewed on the city’s website, www. spanishfork.org.

NEW CITY EVENTS COORDINATOR SF is the perfect location for new city events supervisor Emily Gillingwater has spent her entire career organizing and promoting community events. Now, however, she has landed the perfect position, and it all came down to location. A resident of Spanish Fork since 2006, Gillingwater became Spanish Fork City’s new special events supervisor last October with responsibility over events such as Fiesta Days, the Festival of Lights and Movies in the Park. After doing similar work for other Utah cities for years, she said it is great to come home. “It has always been my dream job to work in the community where I live,” Gillingwater said. “It was a very smooth transition for me as a new employee. I felt like I was coming home, and I felt like I already knew my coworkers because I already knew so many people in the community.” Gillingwater grew up on her family’s vineyard in northern California. After high school, she earned an associate’s degree in radio broadcasting at a local community college. Part of her education was learning about doing promotions, and she

had the opportunity to organize charity basketball tournaments between the Stockton, California, fire department and the San Francisco 49ers. This was her first exposure to organizing and promoting community events, and she decided it was the right choice for her career. She went on to attend California State University, Sacramento, earning a bachelor’s degree in communications with an emphasis in public relations. While at Sac State, she completed an intern-


ship doing game day promotions for the Sacramento River Cats baseball team. One of her responsibilities was coming up with games that baseball fans could participate in between innings. This helped her learn to be creative in event planning. After working in California for a few years, Gillingwater moved to Spanish Fork to be closer to her sister’s family in Benjamin. She took a job as Highland City’s events coordinator, a position she held for 10 years. As part of that job, she oversaw the Highland Fling Days celebration as well as organizations such as the youth council, the arts council, the historical committee and the beautification committee. She also helped recruit volunteers and organize many different events ranging from art classes to Arbor Day activities. “Then I went on to Herriman City to do events, and it was a much larger city than Highland,” Gillingwater said. “We had four full-time event coordinators and one secretary for our office.” Her responsibilities at Herriman City included sponsorships, vendor coordination and bringing in new events. One event she began was one she had seen in Spanish Fork: the Children’s Market on Main, a craft and goods market through which children learn about entrepreneurism. Then the special events supervisor position opened up in Spanish Fork. “The day that I saw it open, I actually had maybe half a dozen text messages and emails from other people that I know in the community letting me know, hey, this is perfect for you,” Gillingwater said. While her paid work has taken her elsewhere, Gillingwater has worked as a volunteer for various Spanish Fork organizations for years. “Even though I’ve worked in other cities, I’m always involved in Spanish Fork activities, committees and volunteering wherever I can,” she said, adding that her belief is that in order to ask people to volunteer, one has to give volunteer service in return. In 2007, Gillingwater volunteered to help with the Utah County Fair. She served for nine years on the fair board, including one year when the fair director fell ill shortly a month prior to the event and Gillingwater and another volunteer stepped up to run the fair. Gillingwater said community events provide all sorts of benefits from allowing people to be socially and physically active to improving their quality of life. “It brings a sense of community and pride where people are proud to say, ‘I’m from Spanish Fork,” she said.

have a modern design featuring an exterior of stucco and rock. Patel said he believes the timing couldn’t be more perfect to bring a high-quality hotel to Spanish Fork. “Spanish Fork is experiencing tremendous growth, especially in and around the area where we are located,” he said. “The recent additions of Cinemark, Intermountain Spanish Fork Hospital and other retailers is a clear indicator that the area has grown to a point where highercaliber amenities are sustainable.” The hotel is anticipated to hire 25 to 30 employees and bring occupancy tax revenues to the city. ”Additionally, we believe that once the hotel and other surrounding development is built out, it will attract even more developments and amenities to come to Spanish Fork,” Patel said. Local residents and organizations will be able to book the meeting room at the new Hampton Inn & Suites for various events and functions such as business meetings, seminars or receptions. There are currently more than 2,400 Hampton by Hilton properties operating in 25 different countries.


NEW HOSPITAL New IHC 30-bed hospital to open by end of 2020 Intermountain Healthcare’s new Spanish Fork Hospital is under construction and expected to open before the end of 2020. The 30-bed hospital will sit on approximately 45 acres east of I-15 and north of U.S. Highway 6 near the Walmart Supercenter. The building’s east/west orientation means patients and visitors will have an excellent view of the mountains in south Utah County. Estimated at approximately $150 million, the new hospital will focus on women’s and medical/surgical services consistent with a community hospital. It will include: • Five labor and delivery rooms, two C-section rooms and two antepartum rooms • 12 postpartum beds • 12 emergency department rooms • Four operating rooms • Two gastroenterology (GI) suites Imaging services such as CT, radiology and MRI will also be available as well as cardiopulmonary diagnostic testing and infusion therapy.

An on-site medical office building and Intermountain InstaCare will provide additional services. Construction officially began with a groundbreaking ceremony in August of 2018. Okland Construction is the contractor for the new hospital.

SMART SPRINKLERS SF City installing thousands of smart sprinkler controllers The Spanish Fork City Public Works Department is installing smart sprinkler controllers at thousands of Spanish Fork homes — free of charge. However, only 3,000 of the sprinkler controllers are available and it’s first come, first served to get one, so interested residents are encouraged to sign up soon. The sprinkler controllers are being made available for free through the city’s Water Conversation Project, a program put in place to improve resident water conservation, reduce daily peak demands and more accurately measure water usage. As part of the project, the city obtained a $300,000 grant from the state and the Central Utah Water Conservancy District that paid for 3,000 Rachio 3 Smart Sprinkler Controllers. The controllers use Wi-Fi and computer technology to determine the best times and amounts for yard watering. “We basically are taking those controllers and for the first 3,000 people that sign up, we are professionally installing them for free,” said Chris Thompson, Spanish Fork’s director of public works. The smart sprinkler controllers are expected to greatly affect water usage in the city as well as potentially save the city millions of dollars as it manages its pressurized irrigation system. To receive a smart sprinkler controller, residents simply need to go to www.spanishfork.org and sign up. An installer will then come to the home and install it for free. Thompson said the installer will input into the device what kind of plants are being watered in each sprinkler zone, the types of sprinkler heads in each zone, how much shade is present, the slope of the ground and what kind of soil is being watered. Because the controllers are connected to the home’s Wi-FI, they also have access to data about the weather during the past 10 days as well as the forecast for the upcoming 10 days. Utilizing all this information, the controller determines when and how much to water.

42 • Spanish Fork - Salem Area Chamber of Commerce 2019

“If it’s windy or if its raining, it will turn off the sprinklers automatically,” Thompson said. This kind of high-tech management can be especially helpful to Spanish Fork, where half the city lives in a “wind belt,” Thompson said. Nearly all residents water their lawns around 10 p.m., which means a lot of homes are watering when the wind is blowing. Because wind evaporates water six times faster than the sun, residents in the wind belt would use less water by running their sprinklers during the day. Knowing when and how much to water isn’t the only benefit of the smart controllers, however. The smart sprinkler controllers can also automatically schedule watering throughout the city, meaning residents won’t all be watering at the same time. This reduces infrastructure cost and keeps sprinkler system pressures higher. With residents watering smarter and at different times, the smart sprinkler controllers will help reduce demand peak water usage, Thompson said. Water systems are built to accommodate peak use, not average use, but if water usage in Spanish Fork was evened out, the city’s reservoir could support that average. In fact, it could then support a larger population, an important consideration as Spanish Fork’s population grows. “All of a sudden, that reservoir goes from supporting 90,000 people to supporting 130,000 people,” Thompson said. A new reservoir can cost $25 million to build. Thompson’s department began installing the


SMART SPRINKLERS Spanish Fork’s Water Conservation Project Residents who want a smart sprinkler controller installed at their home must meet the following conditions: • They must currently have an automatic sprinkler system with a controller. • They must have a smartphone. • They must have wireless internet (Wi-Fi) in their home. Project participants will receive: • A free smart sprinkler controller. • Free professional installation. • A free sprinkler system app. • Free training on using the app. To sign up to have a smart sprinkler controller installed: • Go to www.spanishfork.org and search for “Water Conservation Project.”

controllers last summer, and about 1,350 residents have signed up to receive one so far. About 1,000 of those were installed during the summer of 2018 and another 1,000 will be installed this summer. The remaining 1,000 will be installed during the summer of 2020. Residents can access their smart controllers through an app on their phones and override the system at any time. When the controllers are installed, residents will receive free instruction regarding how to use the app. Thompson said Spanish Fork City modeled its Water Conservation Program after those in a few California cities, adding that Spanish Fork is one of the first cities in Utah to put a program like this in place. “I think the way we’re doing it is really unique,” he said. Brigham Young University is doing a year-long study of the Spanish Fork program to gather data on the potential water and financial savings to the city.

SPANISH FORK AIRPORT New tech makes airport accessible in poor weather As Spanish Fork City prepares to become the sole owner and operator of the Spanish Fork Municipal Airport, the airport is bringing new technology online and serving as a training location for the pilots of tomorrow. “It’s another doorway to the city,” said Cris Child, manager of the airport. “It’s a doorway you can get to three times as fast as driving.” Based on its number of operations — or takeoffs and landings — Spanish Fork Municipal Airport is the sixth-largest airport in the state of Utah. It’s host to about 100 operations per day, which add up to about 3,000 per month. Child said 182 aircraft are based at the airport, which has 100 hangars. The airport hosts many different types and sizes of aircraft and experiences a lot of corporate jet traffic as local businesses fly their aircraft in and out. A 6,500-feet-long runway with approach lighting allows aircraft to land from either direction. Fire-fighting helicopters are not an uncommon sight at the airport, but during area fires last summer, the airport had 17 helicopters using it as their base of operations. “Typically, in a year we use about 140,000 gallons of fuel at this airport,” Child said, “and during that fire they burned almost as much as we burn in a year, just those helicopters fighting that fire.” Formerly known as the Spanish Fork-Springville Airport, the airport was owned and managed by both cities for more than 70 years. When it was built around 1940, the airport was located halfway between the cities, and it was a good partnership for both municipalities, Child said. Over time, however, Spanish Fork grew toward the airport faster than Springville did, eventually surrounding the entire facility. It became more efficient for one city to take over management of the airport, Child said. “Spanish Fork was willing to step up and take that over since they had annexed all the way around the airport,” Child said. It’s been about a year-long process to make the change, but the Federal Aviation Administration is currently reviewing the final documents and as soon as those are approved, the airport will formally belong to Spanish Fork. That ap44 • Spanish Fork - Salem Area Chamber of Commerce 2019

proval is expected within the next couple of months. In the meantime, the airport has been working to bring a system known as an instrument approach online. This GPS-based system allows pilots to take off and land even when low cloud cover exists in the area. An automated weather station has also been installed as part of this effort to get weather information to pilots. It’s taken five years of work, including a survey of the area by the FAA to determine different approach options and locate potential hazards, but the instrument approach came online earlier this year. “It makes it so that it’s an all-weather airport, so in almost any weather condition you can get in and out of there,” Child said, adding that it was common in the past for aircraft coming into Spanish Fork to be diverted to another airport due to weather. Residents may not be aware that the airport is home to several different private flight schools. There’s a helicopter school, a fixed wing school and a gyrocopter school. “There’s a huge demand for pilots right now,” Child said. “The airlines are even offering to pay for schooling to get pilots.” There are also major businesses that call the airport home, and Child said he hopes more will locate there. There are currently about 60 acres of land available for business use at the airport.


GAIL HALVORSEN - CANDY BOMBER Education center to teach science, avation Seventy years ago, Gail S. Halvorsen decided to bring a little joy into the lives of German children wrapped up in an international crisis. Now his legacy — both for that humanitarian act and his later scientific contributions to space flight — is set to be memorialized through a new educational center at the Spanish Fork Municipal Airport. Funds are being raised to construct the Gail S. Halvorsen Aviation Education Center within the boundary of the airport at 2050 N. 300 West, Spanish Fork. The facility, which will house 16,000 square feet of space when complete, will include museum areas, interactive exhibits for children, a hangar area for aircraft and a home for the Civil Air Patrol’s Phantom Squadron. “This center really has an opportunity of being a gem for Spanish Fork and for the south county,” said James Stewart, executive director of the Gail S. Halvorsen Aviation Education Foundation. Halvorsen, a former pilot with the U.S. Army Air Forces, is best known as the “Berlin Candy Bomber.” During the Berlin airlift of 1948 and ’49, while helping fly food and supplies to the people of Berlin, Halvorsen gave two sticks of gum to children lined up along the fence at a Berlin airport and promised to drop more treats from his plane the next day. That candy drop was followed by more drops. The airlift’s commander supported the efforts, and soon news of Halvorsen’s candy drops reached the United States. Eventually, candy was being sent from all over the nation and Halvorsen became one of many pilots performing candy drops for Berlin’s children. Stewart said there will be an exhibit area at the Spanish Fork education center telling the story of the Berlin Candy Bomber. In addition, there will be an exhibit about Halvorsen’s later work for missile and space programs for in the U.S. Air Force, including work on a reusable space vehicle that the Air Force was considering as a weapons platform. That project was eventually canceled, but Halvorsen’s work was later utilized by NASA to design the space shuttle. “We want to tell the ‘Gail the Candy Bomber’ story because that’s a story about the goodness of the United States, the goodness of our culture,” Stewart said. The story about Halvorsen’s science achieve-

ments, however, support the education center’s mission to encourage youth to learn more about STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and consider them as options for their careers. The center will house interactive exhibits focusing on STEM fields in an aviation-themed environment, Stewart said. These will be educational experiences primarily for students in kindergarten through eighth grade. “This will be among the first of its kind of educational enhancement experiences for school children in the south county,” Stewart said. Halvorsen was a member of the Civil Air Patrol, an auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force. Through this organization, citizen volunteers provide help in search and rescue operations and community disaster response as well as promote aviation and related fields through aerospace education and the CAP’s cadet program. The new center will provide an operational center for Phantom Squadron, the local squadron of the CAP, including hangar space for aircraft. The squadron, which currently meets for training at the ROTC building at Brigham Young University, will have room to conduct meetings and events for its cadet program at the center. Stewart said the foundation is planning to break ground for the new center in October in conjunction with Halvorsen’s 99th birthday. The facility may be built in phases depending on how fundraising goes this spring and summer. Those wishing to donate to the Gail S. Halvorsen Aviation Education Center can do so by visiting www.thecandybomber.org. For more information, send an email to Stewart at docstew@thecandybomber.org.

SALEM CITY MAYOR’S MESSAGE As mayor of Salem, I would like to thank the Spanish Fork Salem Area Chamber of Commerce for giving me the opportunity to introduce you to our beautiful community and share some of the highlights we enjoy as Salem citizens. Salem City was again in the top 10 safest cities in Utah in 2018. In fact, Home Snacks lists Salem as the second-safest city in Utah with a population over 5,000 people. Salem is rapidly growing and becoming home to a fabulous community of people. Over the last several years, we have seen tremendous growth in the population of Salem. We now have three elementary schools, a junior high, our own high school and a middle school under construction. If you have never visited the community of Salem, you should plan a trip with your family to enjoy the beauty and recreational opportunities found at our beloved Salem Pond. It is a hot spot for the people of our community and our neighbors. Any day of the week you will find families fishing, swimming, feeding the ducks, picnicking, kayaking, floating on small boats or simply resting in the shade of the trees enjoying the breathtaking view of the mountains. Christmastime is a special treat at Salem Pond as residents and visitors come from all over to view the spectacular display of Pond Town Christmas. Pond Town Christmas is made up of floating Christmas trees and lights of every color that blanket the park and surrounding homes. In the summer, as part of our Salem Days celebration, families flock to the pond and enjoy the

fireworks display as they cascade over the water. It is an event that community members have come to love. Salem is an active community and the citizens love the recreational opportunities available to all residents on a number of levels: soccer, baseball, softball, basketball, cheerleading, dance, volleyball, fishing, tennis, football, horse riding and more. People also love to spend time hiking, biking, jogging, camping and hunting in our beautiful mountains. Salem residents also enjoy our library where they can explore the world through books and participate in other activities the library has to offer throughout the year. Although Salem has primarily been a residential community, we have seen consistent growth in our business and commerce opportunities. We have welcomed new restaurants and businesses into our community. The magnificent mountains, the friendly people and the tight-knit community bring a hometown feel that speaks peace to your soul. I’m grateful for the opportunity that is mine to serve the wonderful people of my community and invite you to come visit Salem - The City of Peace. Salem Mayor Kurt L. Christensen

NEW SEWAGE PLANT Salem constructing new sewage treatment plant Construction is underway on a new sewage treatment plant in Salem that will allow the city to meet new regulations put in place by state and federal government agencies. Discharge limits on ammonia have been lowered by the Environmental Protection Agency, and the city is required to meet these limits by August of 2022. The Utah Department of Environmental Quality has adopted a lower discharge limit on phosphorous that the city must meet by August of 2022. It is anticipated that discharge limits for other substances such as nitrogen will also be lowered in the near future. “Salem’s current lagoons are not be able to meet these limits,” said Salem City Engineering Director Bruce Ward. “Constructing this new sewer plant will put in place the processes needed to meet the new requirements.” Consequences of violating the new limits include potentially being fined by the EPA up to $16,000 per day per violation. Construction of the new plant will move the city from a lagoon treatment system to a biological nutrient removal – oxidation ditch system. Total cost of the new plant is estimated at $21 million, with $1 million of the cost com-

ing from the city and the remaining $20 million through a loan from the Utah Clean Water State Revolving Fund. The loan will have an interest rate of 1.15 percent and a term up to 30 years. Funding payments on the loan is requiring the city to increase residents’ sewer rates. The new tiered-rate structure has a base rate of $45 per month, which does not include any water usage. The usage charge will be based on drinking water use with the rate ranging from $1.50 to $2.25 per 1,000 gallons depending on which tier a customer’s use is in. The average user will pay approximately $54 per month. Salem City began planning work for meeting these new requirements in 2015 and have explored many alternatives before determining this to be the best approach including upgrading the existing lagoons, replacing the lagoons with a new mechanical treatment plant, sending the city’s wastewater to neighboring cities for treatment, and forming a new regional treatment system. New emerging technologies, such as treatment systems using algae, were also reviewed. Construction is scheduled to be completed in December 2020.

NEW ACTIVITY CENTER Activity center enhances recreational opportunities Salem’s continual population growth brought with it the need for more space, more programs and more staff. This in turn created a need for indoor recreation space that could house these programs and staff. The result was the Salem Activity Center, an 8,800-square-foot building located at 60 N. 100 East that was completed in July of 2017. This facility now serves as a gathering place for local senior citizens and a venue for after-school programming and a variety of classes for children and adults. Discussion about building the center began during city budget planning in 2015. Design concepts followed that year, with approval for the building coming in the early part of 2016. The building was designed by KMA Architects and built by Westland Construction. The price tag for the completed facility was $1.3 million dollars, with $1.1 million paid for with recreation impact fees. The remaining $200,000 was budgeted and spent out of the Salem City Capital Improvements Budget. Prior to the activity center’s construction, the Salem Recreation Department staff of three fulltime employees and two part-time employees was working out of a small 596-square-foot building with a single bathroom. That facility was located in the same spot as the new center; in fact, the front office of the new building sits on the same foundation as the old office. Construction began in October of 2016. The recreation staff worked out of a portable office in 50 • Spanish Fork - Salem Area Chamber of Commerce 2019

the parking lot through the winter and moved in upon the building’s partial completion in April of 2017. The activity center, which is surrounded by Veterans Memorial Sports Park, has a large covered pavilion on its south side with picnic tables that connect to an open patio with access to a new Snack Shack. The new Snack Shack was a welcome addition to the area as the old shack was in poor condition and had not been run for several years. Outside improvements also included new rest-


NEW ACTIVITY CENTER room facilities. This year, lights are being installed in the center’s parking lot; they will be operational by spring. Inside the front door of the center, visitors walk into a waiting area and are greeted by a receptionist. There is also meeting lounge and office section for Program Coordinator Chase Castleberry. Down the hall are separate men’s and women’s restrooms. Toward the back are two additional offices for Matt Marziale, Salem’s director or water, sewer, roads and recreation, and Jen Wright, city recreation manager. On the north side of the building there is a small gym. The building’s upstairs area was originally

designed for storage, but it was later decided to use half of the area for storage and finish the

NEW ACTIVITY CENTER second half to make it usable space. This has turned out to be a great decision as the room has given staff space to organize uniforms and equipment and hold events such as umpire trainings, employee meetings, hunter safety classes and Lego Camp. The upstairs room also provides additional space for the Youth Always Matter, or YAM, program. Through YAM, junior high students are able to go to the activity center after school Monday through Thursday until 5 p.m. and shoot hoops in the gym, set up the pickleball nets or play other games like foosball or magnetic darts. The center hosts local senior citizens on Tuesdays and Thursdays at noon with lunch followed by Bingo, games, musical entertainment or other activities. Other times are scheduled for seniors to participate in a crochet group, paint or learn about nutrition. The building is open for seniors to walk from 8 to 9 a.m. Monday through Friday. The local theater organization has been able to use the activity center as well. Organized in 2017, Salem Community Theater put on a production of

“Bye Bye Birdie” its first year, which was followed by “Hello, Dolly” in 2018. The group has held its rehearsals in the center from May until July when they move to the high school auditorium for final show preparation. Gymnastics has been added as a new program and runs on Wednesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for preschool and kindergarten students. On Friday mornings, the center offers Bizzy Buddies, a class where preschool children run obstacle courses, dance and sing to music while they make friends. On Saturday mornings during the winter months, children from preschool to second grade play indoor soccer at the center. The dance program at the center was moved from an elementary school gym, making more room for basketball teams to practice. The popular city cheer program uses the activity center to practice for close to five months out of the year as well. The building is available for residents to rent for events such as birthdays, reunions, missionary or wedding luncheons and Christmas parties.

NEW NEBO SCHOOLS New schools underway in Nebo School District Construction on the first new school funded through a $298 million bond issue approved by Nebo School District voters in 2018 has just begun in Salem. In addition, the district has announced that Spanish Fork High School will be the first of the district’s three aging high schools to be replaced using bond issue funds. A total of six major construction projects are scheduled to be completed in the district within the next eight years using bond issue funds with an additional $47 million in saved capital funds. Valley View Middle School, to be located at 340 S. Woodland Hills Drive in Salem, is now underway and is anticipated to open in the fall of 2020. Two additional new middle schools — Maple Grove in the Spanish Fork-Mapleton area and Spring Canyon in the Springville area — will also be built along with complete replacements for Spanish Fork, Payson and Springville high schools. Nebo School District Community Relations Administrator Lana Hiskey said growth in the district created the need for new schools. “We are experiencing about 500 new students per year, which is almost an elementary school per year,” Hiskey said. “Cities have communicated with us that there’s a lot more building to come. Payson High, Spanish Fork High and Springville High will all be over 55 years old when they are rebuilt. They are currently in constant need of costly repair. The new schools will be adaptable and ready for technology-based learning while also having increased security measures and modern security systems. New schools are also built to current seismic standards, reducing risk to anyone that enters the buildings. It is important to our students’ future to address the academic and safety needs of students and staff.” The construction of the three new middle schools, along with the planned conversion of Diamond Fork Junior High School in Spanish Fork and Mt. Nebo Junior High School in Payson to middle schools, will allow the district to return to its former middle school model. This model had students attending a middle school following elementary school instead of going directly to junior high. In 2016, Nebo School District conducted a

survey on grade reconfiguration models. The survey was available to every patron in Nebo School District; the results showed the majority preferred the middle school model. Currently, students in the district attend kindergarten through sixth grade in elementary school, seventh through ninth grade in junior high and 10th through 12th grade in high school. The middle school model will have kindergarten through fifth grade in elementary school, sixth and seventh grade in middle school, eighth and ninth grade in junior high and 10th through 12th grade in high school. The district eliminated middle schools in 2006 when the district didn’t have the funding to build more middle schools and junior high schools to accompany its two new high schools (Salem Hills and Maple Mountain), so elementary schools and junior high schools were built over time to address population growth. The resulting school boundary changes with new high schools meant students would no longer go from middle school through high school with the same group of students from within the same geographical boundary. For example, Spanish Fork - Salem Area Chamber of Commerce 2019 • 53


NEW NEBO SCHOOLS Diamond Fork Junior High students currently split up after ninth grade with some going to Maple Mountain High School and others going to Spanish Fork High School. Adding the new middle schools back into the system will allow the district to again have a group of students attending sixth through 12th grade together. This “straight alignment pattern” means that all students in a middle school will go to the same junior high school and then to the same high school. In other words, the middle school and junior high boundaries are the same as the high school boundary. The 2016 survey showed the straight alignment system was preferred by parents. Placing sixth and seventh grade in middle school will relieve overcrowding in the elementary and junior high schools, Hiskey said. The district was not considering rebuilding the three older high schools in this bond until the 2016 survey had many residents asking why the district wasn’t addressing that issue. Hiskey said after a year of study, it was determined that if a bond issue was passed now but construction on the high schools didn’t start until 2022, a tax

increase would not be needed, which was an important consideration for the district. Spanish Fork High School will be rebuilt first, with construction beginning in 2022. The plan for all three high schools is to build the new school next to the existing school and then tear down the old school after the new one opens. “The biggest reason (SFHS was selected to be built first) is that it is the oldest building and, more importantly, will be the easiest to build on the current site,” Hiskey said. “There’s more green space on that property and the elevation is relatively flat.” Payson High will be next, with construction beginning in 2023, and Springville High will follow in 2024. Springville High’s site has Hobble Creek running along on one side and limited space surrounding the school, so it will be the most difficult logistically to deal with. “We still need a facility where we can educate high school students while we are building these three new high schools and hope the community has patience with the parking during construction since the parking and green space will be where the new buildings will be built,” Hiskey said.

Two Franciscan friars named Silvestre Valez de Escalante and Francisco Atanasio de Dominguez were some of the first explorers to pass through the Spanish Fork area. These priests set out from Santa Fe, New Mexico, with the intent of finding an alternative route to other Spanish missions in California. After traveling down Spanish Fork Canyon, they camped somewhere near the present day city limits of Spanish Fork on Sept. 23, 1776. A bronze sculpture, sculpted by Avard Fairbanks and located in Spanish Fork City Park at 49 S. Main, depicts the friars and their guide.
