A couple of weeks ago, county council member Roger Armstrong related the problems he had hooking onto the bus system from his home in Park Meadows.

He told fellow council members there needed to be a re-look at the transit system.

What he’s aiming at, he told KPCW this week, is getting the system to build from the advancements it’s made in recent years.

Armstrong told KPCW that his remarks weren’t motivated by an issue with Park City, the county’s partner in the area transit system.

The chair of the Summit County Council Kim Carson says they’ve been planning to meet with Park City representatives to discuss, among other things, the bus system operated by both entities. However, the topic was highlighted this week when a county council member talked about his futile efforts to use the bus.

Council member Roger Armstrong briefly reported Wednesday to his colleagues that he ran into problems trying to catch a bus from his home in Park Meadows to get to Deer Valley.

Summit County officials are always urging locals to take the bus. But one County Council member says that when he tried last week to hook onto a bus  from his home in Park Meadows, it was a futile effort. Roger Armstrong says the current system, with the county being partnered with Park City, needs a close look and a significant overhaul. Rick Brough has more.

Roger Armstrong lives on Meadows Drive and said the nearest   bus stop for him is at the intersection with Highway 224.

The Summit County council  Wednesday approved a Resolution  stating that their preferred option for an improvement along the Highway 224 corridor; would be Bus Rapid Transit lanes on both sides of the highway.

The vote just moves a study of 224 to the next step.

One council member, Roger Armstrong, said he’d like to take a step back, and see how they can make the bus system more efficient, and more accessible to riders.

Summit County Council Member Roger Armstrong is still wrestling with a decision about  whether the Council should set up a new transit tax—a choice the county has to make before the end of the month.

The new tax, amounting to .25 percent, was a topic this week as the Council of Governments (COG) met. East Side mayors were concerned that the new levy comes while the citizens are facing a number of proposed tax increases.

The Summit Council Wednesday once again turned down the applicants of the Colby School Redevelopment project. Council Member  Roger Armstrong again maintained  that  careful analysis was behind their rejection of the plan this spring.   

In late March, the County Council granted an appeal from neighbors and voted against the Colby project. Soon after, the developers put in another application, but it was turned down by Development Director Pat Putt.
