Public meeting for Dakota Pacific moved to Ecker Hill Middle School
Next week’s public meeting for the proposed Dakota Pacific project in Kimball Junction is going to be held at Ecker Hill Middle School, which has more room than the Richins building.
Expecting a large number of people to attend the November 17th Dakota Pacific public hearing, Summit County has moved the location to the Ecker Hill Middle School auditorium in Snyderville.
The Dakota Pacific project has garnered a large amount of public interest in recent months, including a change.org petition in opposition to the project that has gathered nearly 3,000 signatures.
Snyderville Basin Planning Commission Chair Thomas Cooke says Wednesday will be the best opportunity for the public to weigh in.
“The public hasn’t had much of an opportunity to comment or provide input on that yet," he says. "I would encourage anybody who has an opinion about that project to either show up in person, or join the Zoom meeting and let your voice be heard.”
If approved, the project would build a mixed-use neighborhood west of SR 224 in Kimball Junction containing commercial and office space, a hotel, and 1,100 residential units.
Wednesday’s meeting begins at 6pm.
