Snyderville Planning Commisison

The proposed Commons at Newpark development is still the center of controversy. A group of appellants has filed a challenge against the approval given to the plan by the county manager.

The project, proposed by Newpark developer Gary Crandall and his sons Matt and Ryan, would create a building of over 10,000 square feet in a parcel to the west of the Newpark amphitheater. The project, comprised of seven townhomes, got a positive recommendation from the Snyderville Planning Commission last winter.

On June 28th, county manager Tom Fisher gave an approval to the project.
