Snyderville Planning Commission Will Consider Regulating Accessory Buildings

  The Snyderville Planning Commission will host public hearings in the near future on a proposal to regulate accessory buildings and structures.

The chair of the Planning Commission says at this point, she still needs more information about the idea.

The planning commission got an introduction to the proposal during a work session last week. The planning staff said the idea was prompted by public comment.

Planning Commission chairwoman Bea Peck said she still has a basic question: Where's the harm in accessory buildings?

"I’m wary of creating ordinances that tell private landowners what to do." Peck said, "I’m going to need more information, and I know we’re going to have a series of public hearings to find out what the problem is. I know that there have been some complaints and comments, that people are putting up large barns or structures on their property. They may not be necessarily agricultural they may be things that are housing a basketball court or things like that, but it’s private use. Before we start jumping on to private land owners and their private use at their own property I’d like to get a really good look at what the concerns are. It’s not striking me as health, safety and welfare at the first look.”

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.
