Summit County Council Considers Dakota Pacific Project and Open Space Bond
Summit County Council meets Wednesday at 12:50 for a strategic planning work session in the Richins Building.
The council meeting will begin with an hour-long discussion about its strategic planning initiatives. The council will then move to a closed session, and resume the work session at about 3 p.m. in the auditorium.
At 3:15, they'll discuss a county-wide general obligation bond for open space and conservation projects. Summit County Manager Tom Fisher said the council has until August 19 to decide whether to run the bond during November's election.
"All they have to do by the 19th is turn in a resolution that indicates that they are considering putting something on the ballot, then, they would have time and actually have to do some public hearings in order to actually take the final action later this year in order to put it on the ballot, but this gives the governor, lieutenant governor's office notice that that the council is considering it."
Following the bond discussion, the council will continue talks about Dakota Pacific. The council may approve amendments under Ordinance 698-A, which adopts the development agreement for the Summit Research Park at Kimball Junction. https://summitcounty.org/DocumentCenter/View/9961/Summit-Research-Park-DA-2008?bidId=
The council has set aside two hours for this discussion, and public comment will likely be taken, although the public comment period has finished. Fisher said there are some changes outlined in the staff report which address new issues.
"Well, they deal with everything from the, the amount of affordable housing, some financing mechanisms that are available in state law with tax increment financing or other types of assessments that would build quite a large amount of money in order to leverage for transportation and public amenities, as well as some other items of interest."
