Planning Commission Asks For More Information While Considering Plat Amendment At Canyons Village

Summit County

The Snyderville Planning Commission Tuesday night waded into a discussion about a development parcel at the Canyons Resort asking for a plat amendment.

In the end, the planning panel did not come to a decision.

The application came from developers for the Weight Townhouse Subdivision. They’re asking to amend the Plat, so that their primary access can come off Red Pine Road.

But in a public hearing, neighbors objected, talking about the impacts on them and on the road.

Snyderville Planning Chairwoman Malena Stevens said the history of the parcel goes back at least seven years.

“Originally the parcel in question, the Weight property, was part of the Escala parcel,” Stevens explained. “Several years ago, I believe 2012, divided that into two separate parcels. On the parcel it was stated that they still had to use the access through the Escala because it was intended to be developed in conjunction still with that, the Escala parcel.”

She said it’s not clear if the parcel now has a road access.

“From what it states within their agreement that it was supposed to go through the Escala parcel,” Stevens said. “There is not, I don't believe that there is a road access that has been set aside for that.”

Stevens said they voted to continue the item, and they’re seeking more information on several items.

“Regarding some additional history we wanted to listen to the 2012 conversation from the Planning Commission at that time as none of the current commission were present during that time,” Stevens continued. “We also wanted to get some further history and legal opinion regarding the sale of the Weight property. If that wasn't considered, if the public has an obligation to then provide that, if that was something that they had missed. So, we're looking into a bunch of different things as well as a traffic study to look and see what the traffic burden will increase to on that road. Also, the applicant didn't have a clear idea of what they would want to build or how much of the density on that parcel they'd be able to use, because of step backs and other stipulate heights, regulations and stipulation.”
