Safe Exchange Zone

Farmington City Police Department has officially opened a “Safe Exchange Zone”. The safe exchange zone is an area that is well lit 24 hours a day, under 24 hour recorded video surveillance and within a few feet of the Police Department’s front doors.

The Safe exchange is meant for the sole purpose to offer the city residents and visitors an area that is safe to exchange kids between parents or conduct personal online transactions.

The two stall safe zone is located in the parking lot south of the Police department building. The two designated stalls are each marked with a sign.

For information or questions on the Safe Exchange zone, please contact the Farmington Police Department at (801)-451-5453.

Farmington has an amazing group providing public safety in our community. As a fundraiser for the Davis County Children’s Justice Center, Police and Fire had a friendly competition on the ballfield. At the end of this game, Police came out on top on the scoreboard. But watch out, Police! Fire is practicing and will be back for some more hardcore softball.

Future Tom Owens Park

In the Spring of 2023, Farmington City acquired an historic treasure and 6.5 acres of land on the East bench. After much deliberation, Tom Owens, who has owned and preserved the land since the 1990’s, agreed to the sale.
The most prominent feature of this land was the Richard Grist Mill, a building from pioneer times. Preserving the Mill and making this into an incredible park and destination is the Council’s goal. Designing a park of this nature is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so we are hoping to get it right. The master planning process has begun and it will likely take several years before design and other work is completed.

On September 9, 2023, the community came together and helped to clear away overgrowth as part of the 9/11 Day of Service.
