Payson may make lemonade out of lemons — by turning the flood-prone American Gulch (or Old Town Waterway as some want to call it) into an amenity.
At least, that’s what three property owners hope they’ll accomplish by donating land in the flood plain to the town for both flood control and a walking path between Main Street and West Aero Drive.
“It sounded really good … a win-win,” said Jim Young, one of the property owners.
This project has been a long time coming.
