Promontory Project Approved With Conditions; Secondary Access Roads To Be Mapped

Riley Simpson

Summit County manager Tom Fisher just gave a development approval for the Promontory project--but with some conditions.

Fisher held a hearing last week about a new phase to expand the Nicklaus Clubhouse in Promontory. He said he approved it--but with two conditions.

"The two conditions are that an affordable housing plan for the 37-units be developed and accepted by the county before building permits are issued as well as a time-line for that affordable housing plan would be developed and accepted by the county before building permits are issued."

About another ongoing issue--during last week's Tollgate Fire there was some confusion about what private road existed that could provide a secondary access for the jeopardized Tollgate/Forest Meadows neighborhoods.

Fisher acknowledged that was a problem.

"I think that there's different accesses to private property up there. Then there's probably an official secondary access that has a crash gate. I know that--by reading some of the social media posts by folks up there--they're attempting to identify those. I've already started asking questions of our Fire Warden and our Emergency Manager about how we can provide some inventory of those just so that we know that the county and our fire districts know where these are. I'm quite certain our fire districts do so I'd like to provide some more legacy items on our GIS system so that we can more easily identify those, and the public would have access to them constantly."

Known for getting all the facts right, as well as his distinctive sign-off, Rick covered Summit County meetings and issues for 35 years on KPCW. He now heads the Friday Film Review team.
