March 1, 2018 | By Dallas Wood

New Happenings

New Businesses Coming Soon! 
Newly added: 
  • H&M coming to the Red Cliffs Mall! This could be big news for the mall. Construction should be underway soon. 
  • Beans & Brews at Dinosaur Crossing is now OPEN! 
  • Orange Peel signs are up at Dinosaur Crossing and will be open at some point this month. 
  • Simister Ortho and Riverside Dental will break ground on a building next to Mountain America and Lin’s in Washington Fields. No timeframe confirmed yet but this is great news for people out in the fields. 
  • Tech ridge: I went to a presentation last month at Dixie Tech on what to expect in the next year up at Tech Ridge. Busy Busy, Printer Logic, and Zonos are the 3 local tech companies leading the way with the city and will be the first companies up on the hill. There are rumors that there is a growing list of interested companies will follow suit. The first building is scheduled to be done in the spring of next year. As I get more information, I will continue to update as this is the absolute most exciting project for Southern Utah. http://www.thespectrum.com/story/news/2018/02/03/st-george-strikes-deal-tech-ridge/300797002/
  • There has been a new underpass proposed that would help with the student traffic at the college tremendously. The tunnel would be beneath I-15 at about 400 South. This would allow students that live on the east side of the freeway to cross over without having to jam up 100 South and 700 South. http://www.thespectrum.com/story/news/2018/02/06/15-underpass-near-dixie-state-proposed/311997002/
