Â Â Â Â The Daybreak Daily is turningÂ 3 Â½ years old this month. It's been a long road and there were some bumps along the way to get where we are today. However The Daybreak Daily has slowly evolved and now isÂ the main website for the Daybreak Community. Over the past six months The Daybreak Daily is gettingÂ about 200-250 unique site visits per day (50-75 unique content hits per day) and The Daybreak Daily is now the only website that comes up on the first page via a Google search (Daybreak Utah)Â that is not paying anything in marketing. I get emails everyday from all sorts of people, Daybreak residents, and South Jordan residents not living in Daybreak, Realtors, local Media, and people looking to buy in Daybreak. And almost all of the emails I get are from people thanking The Daybreak Daily team forÂ work they put into maintainingÂ The Daybreak Daily because it is the only resource thatÂ gives you all the facts and has open forums for users to communicate with one another to get real answers to their questions..
As many of you know we are now using Facebook more and more as a vehicle to distribute news and updates on all things Daybreak and the surrounding areas. Please follow The Daybreak Daily on Facebook by clicking the link below.

Â Â As most of us already know, there was a tragic house fire in Eastlake Village today, attached is a map of where the fire was (house on the top left of the map/pic). My friends at www.oursouthvalley.com are doing a story on this soon, there is video and pics.
Keep the family who this happened to in your prayers, itâ€™s very sad.
A 15 acre park called Brookside Park is being built in Daybreak just west of Oquirrh Lake and will be open in the spring of 2011. The park will have a Frisbee golf course, a large grass field, and a lake recirculation streamâ€¦Sounds Fun!!!
Perhaps there will be a large hill slide as well since Kennecott Land (Ty McCutcheon - Daybreak BOD President) promised they would put one in last yearâ€¦
