West Valley City celebrated its first decade by moving into a newly constructed and fully paid for city hall which replaced the totally inadequate remodeled warehouse. As the city began its second decade it boasted a population of 86,976, a 19.5 percent increase from 1980. By 1990 West Valley City was gaining respect both as a residential area and as a home for business and industry, with 25 percent of its area residential, 11 percent agricultural, 4 percent commercial, 1 percent parks, and 38 percent undeveloped.
