NORTH SALT LAKE, Utah (AP) - The city of North Salt Lake, home developers and others have agreed on a plan to stabilize a hill after a landslide crushed a home there last fall.

Eaglepointe Development says the group, which includes an oil and gas company with nearby pipelines, is submitting the plan to the North Salt Lake City Council on Friday. If the council approves, work can begin on the $2 million plan to re-grade the hillside in so the slope is less steep.

The plan also calls for a wall to be installed at the bottom of the slope to catch any unstable soil.

No one was hurt when the hillside tumbled on Aug. 5 in the upscale subdivision about 10 miles north of Salt Lake City. One family was displaced after their home was destroyed.
