Wasatch County residents can comment on new park, RAP tax
Wasatch County will hold a public hearing about a recreation, arts and parks tax and proposed public park during its regular meeting tomorrow evening.
Wasatch County Council will begin the regular meeting at 3 p.m., then the public hearing at 6 p.m.
During the hearing, the public can weigh in on the RAP tax that county voters will vote on in early November.
It will also be a chance to comment on a new park that would be in Center Creek, unincorporated county land between Heber and Daniel. It proposes 13 acres of turf sports fields, a playground, a picnic area and pickleball courts.
The developer would build the park in exchange for a density increase to a proposed subdivision development close by. The request to add 38 lots to the Christensen Farms subdivision is also part of the public hearing.
In the regular meeting, the council will hear updates from the Wasatch County Health Department and MIDA, the state agency heading the Mayflower Mountain Resort project.
It will also consider and possibly adopt a parking ordinance.
County Manager Dustin Grabau will bring up the option for the county to purchase a $7 million bond. He says it’s a refinancing opportunity to pay off an old bond for the event center and court expansion from 2013 with a lower interest rate. He says the new bond could end up closer to $5 million in the end.
The council will also address a concern citizens raised about a lot in the Star Harbour development, which was first intended for utilities but could be repurposed as a developable lot.
The council will meet at the county administration building at 25 North Main Street in Heber City. To attend the meeting virtually, visit the county website at wasatch.utah.gov.
