This area is also the location of the future Military Installation Development, or MIDA, a property that will cater to military personnel and their families.
Utah State Senator Stuart Adams, also Chair of the Military Installation Development Authority, expressed his enthusiasm that Extell’s newest acquisition is in Utah. Senator Adams explained that, “MIDA has been actively engaged with the Air Force in locating and eventually constructing a military recreation facility (MRF) in Wasatch County that will be related to the Deer Valley expansion. Regardless of the final determination of the specific location of the MRF; having a world-class four-seasons experience for the public and military personnel is critical to the success of the future recreation facility. The land Extell has acquired will be ... home to many of the amenities that make Wasatch County so attractive as a recreation destination not only for the military, but also for people all around the world. MIDA looks forward to coordinating with Extell as it creates a premier resort destination in Utah.”
"This is another step along the way of realizing the dream of having a military recreation facility on the Wasatch Back. There is certainly more to do, and with everyone working together we will get it done. This is one of the most beautiful areas of the country and the recreational opportunities are endless. As a veteran myself, this facility will be a benefit to the military, veterans and their families, Wasatch County and Utah," said Midway resident, Gary R. Harter, the Executive Director of the Department of Veterans & Military Affairs for the State of Utah.
Extell Development Company’s acquisition of the Mayflower land is the first of many steps in the process for developing the land, “We will work hand in hand with the Deer Valley Resort, Wasatch County, Jordanelle Special Service District, Military Installation Development Authority, Utah Department of Transportation, Wasatch County Fire District, Department of Environmental Response and Remediation, and multiple other integral entities,” said Kurt Krieg, Vice President of Development for Extell Development Company.
