    New Wakeboard Park in Eagle Mountain Utah?

    "The project won city Planning Commission approval last week and is scheduled for City Council consideration Tuesday, May 17. Hanks said the project would be privately owned and financed but did not want to say what he expects the project will cost. The site is on Utah Trust Lands and would be leased from the state.

    Hanks said he has equipment ready to start turning dirt, as soon as he gets city approval. "We potentially could be open towards the middle or end of June. Realistically it could be July."

    Steve Mumford, Eagle Mountain planning director, said the city and Hanks are still negotiating economic development incentives, which may include the first 3 million-gallon fill for the rectangular lakes in the first phase. Fast-track construction techniques, like portable buildings and a gravel parking lot, are also part of the initial construction plan to get the park under way.

    The exact placement of the park and its configuration are still being worked on. Trust Lands spokeswoman NormaLee McMichael said the amount the state charges for the lease will depend on the park's final configuration and footprint. She said the proposal currently ranges from five to 10 acres.

    Hanks said he plans to offer equipment rental and lessons and expects he'll charge riders about $25 for two hours on the water and probably $35 for an all-day pass, the same as riders pay at Wake Nation parks in Houston and Cincinnatti. The first phase would accommodate 10-12 riders per hour and the circular lake in phase 2 would accommodate 35-40 riders per hour. "The objective is to get phase 2 up by spring of 2012," Hanks said."

    Eagle Mountain, exact location of park is unknown at this time:
