Tuesday night, the Snyderville Planning Commission voted 5-2 to advance a negative recommendation for the Dakota Pacific project at Kimball Junction, following several months of discussion with the developers and four public hearings this summer.


The negative recommendation, which now goes on to the County Council, was supported by Snyderville Commissioners Thomas Cooke, Ryan Dickey, Joel Fine, Canice Harte and John Kucera. Krystal Simons and Malena Stevens opposed the decision.

After months of discussion, the Snyderville Planning Commission will convene in September to see if they are ready for a decision about the Dakota Pacific project at Kimball Junction.

He said one topic they’ve studied for a long time is the affordable housing in the project, and whether it will be available to people who work up here.
