Summit Land Conservancy

The Summit Land Conservancy is working to acquire a 15-acre parcel of land near Oakley that it hopes would be both natural open space and the site for a “green cemetery” where decedents would be buried naturally in the earth.

 

An Eastern Summit County open-space committee just recommended partial funding for the project, which partners the Land Conservancy with a Salt Lake funeral parlor, but there is more funding needed and another hearing ahead for the effort.

 

The statewide mask mandate ended on April 10. Summit and Wasatch Counties aren’t extended a limited order for face coverings.

A statement from Summit County thanked the public for their compliance and also said the “current outlook is a result of your diligent efforts and sacrifices.” County officials asked that residents respect any private companies that continue to enforce masks. 

Coalville City

Water is a hot button issue in agricultural communities. And with a drought state of emergency in effect, KPCW checked in with one North Summit County community. 

  The last time the city of Coalville issued a water restriction was around 40 years ago. And despite the drought order, this year the city most likely won’t see any issues, according to Coalville Mayor Trevor Johnson. 

Summit County

The Summit County Council Wednesday didn’t make a decision on the planned neighborhood mixed-use zone — nor on the master-planned development process, which is closely tied to the new zone.

 

Councilor Malena Stevens said the county is crafting the language carefully on both, to avoid any unintended consequences.

It was a nail-biter evening for Wyatt Pike fans, but Sunday night on ABC's "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest announced Pike won enough votes to make it to the Top 16.

There were only two slots left when Pike's name was announced.  The 20 year-old Park City singer jumped up and minutes later sang his version of "Use Somebody" by the group Kings of Leon.

A little-known episode in recent American history is the subject of a new biopic.    Libby Wadman has the details for this week’s Friday Film Review.
