Snyderville Planning Commission To Look At Code Amendment In Silver Creek

This week’s regular meeting of the Snyderville Planning Commission has a handful of items.

Most significantly, the panel will look at a code amendment which could pave the way for a major development in the Silver Creek Industrial Park.

The Snyderville Commission meets at 4:30, on Tuesday March 12th, at the Richins Services Building.

The last of three items is a work session discussion on creating a possible new zone. Development Director Pat Putt told us it could enable the proposed Market Place at Silver Creek development, near the roundabout east of Highway 40. In the industrial park.

“If you’re going to Home Depot and you hit the round about it’d be at about one-o’clock. It’s about 13 acres there and I believe seven acres across the road,” Putt explained. “What’s being proposed there is commercial mixed-use development. It would include a grocery store perhaps up to about 60,000 square feet. Some other retail and restaurant uses. There’s a proposal for some workforce housing to be incorporated with that in addition to some market housing. Perhaps a hotel, some community civic areas, an amphitheater.”

He said the developer, Henry Sigg, has been building in the area for a couple of decades.

“Mr. Sigg has incorporated into his sketch plan application a proposal to have a code amendment to implement a new zone. It’s actually a zone that we have been working on for a couple of years it’s called a neighborhood mixed-use zone. The planning commission’s going to be taking a look primarily at the zone itself. I’d be surprised if they could have that discussion without beginning to talk about the plan that Henry is bringing forward.”

Earlier on the agenda, the Planning Commission will hold a public hearing, and possibly take a vote, on a revision to the Rural Residential Zone. It is clarifying how setbacks will be measured, when the property line for a lot extends to the center of a roadway.

Next up, scheduled for just a discussion, the panel will look at a Sketch Plan for the Ivers Family Subdivision. It would be located along White Pine Canyon Road. The plan is proposing 29 lots of 210 acres.

The proposal is based on a Development Agreement for the land that the county approved in 2004. That agreement is set to expire this July, so the owners have to get a Final Subdivision Plat approved by then.

The staff report, however, said they have some concerns. The new plan reportedly has some development outside the “buildable lot” limits set in the Development Agreement, and that will impact protections for Critical Slopes, wetlands and streams.

Finally, looking further out, Putt said that the Planning Commission in April will likely see the new application for the Pendry Hotel at the Canyons. He said it’s some 270,000 square feet, set in the southeast corner of the Canyons Village Core.

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.
