I have accepted a job with the Church and am looking to move to the Salt Lake area in June of 2006. I am looking for an affordable area that has good schools and low crime. Anyone have any suggestions?

Assuming you will be working at the LDS Church Headquarters building downtown.

If you can afford to live on the east side of Salt Lake, the schools are supposed to be pretty good and you would have a great commute. Houses are quite a bit more expensive.

Otherwise, I sometimes ride an express bus from my house on the far west of the valley to downtown. There are several people who work at the Church headquarters who take the bus. It only takes about 25 minutes and drops people off right there. Driving similarly takes about 20 minutes.

Houses out there cheaper, though they, along with all housing in the valley have gone up quite a bit in the last year.

The neighborhood is nice and quiet. However, I'm not totally sold on Granite School District though. Some of the schools seem sort of run down and have large classes. The large classes are a Utah-wide problem though. That said, they just opened a beautiful elementary school in our neighborhood. It looks like a great facility. My daughter will start kindergarten there next year.

You can find similarly cheap housing down south toward Herriman or even down into Lehi. Your commute would be a lot worse than what I have though.

Church with a capital "C", of course. That one.

Default moving

I have lived in West Valley for the last 10 years and I like it. You will want to look around because like anything there is good and bad. The area I live in is between 4100 s and 4700 s. anything west of 2700 w. and 3600 w.
My daughter attends Robert Frost Elementary and it is great. I think the middle school is good too. I am not sold on the High School but a lot of kids actually transfer to other High Schools. Taylorsville is another nice area. These areas will be cheaper than Herriman, West Jordan, and South Jordan. They have nice freeway access and a lot of good restaurants, theatres, sporting events, and central access to other cities. As far as the schools go, a lot of people are checking out and liking the charter schools. I think a school is as good as the principal in charge. They set the mood for the whole school. If you move in any of the above mentioned areas they are usually "older" more established homes so there aren't always a lot of kids young kids.

I did mean June 2007 and yes I will be working for the LDS Church at the HQ in downtown SLC. Nothing against the others as I was raised Southern Baptist and my brother is a Roman Catholic Priest, but I am looking forward to living where I am in the majority for a change.

Since my first post I have narrowed my search to Davis County. My wife has family in Roy and Syracuse. I have heard that the there is going to be a rail system going in and Davis County Schools are good. Any opinions? I was looking to stay between Woods Cross and Kaysville.

I've often wondered what in the world goes on in that huge building? I mean its supposed to be a church -- what do they need a million square feet of office space for?

I think we may have a troll on our hands. petite you come in here and post several new postings all somewhat anti-mormon. I'm assuming that question was completely sarcastic and is not worth an answer. So if you know anything about the mormon church that question is utterly ridiculous and completely common sense. But it is clear you don't. So take your chip somewhere else.
