WELCOME TO WEST BOUNTIFUL!!
Grady Tanner accomplished quite a feat when he decided to build a monument welcoming the public to West Bountiful City as his Eagle Scout project in 2012. The result of his 2 year project stands just south of the Country Inn & Suites on 500 West, visible to all southbound vehicles exiting I-15. Grady's hard work and dedication is a tribute to West Bountiful that we will all enjoy for many years. Thank you, Grady -- your commitment and tenacity has given us all something we can be proud of!
