Dakota Pacific Real Estate

Applicants seeking to build the Dakota Pacific residential and commercial development on the west side of Kimball Junction returned to the Summit County Council Wednesday for a two-hour discussion about project details.

 

County Councilor Doug Clyde says the current proposal is an improvement, compared to the unsuitable Tech Park approval given to the site over a dozen years ago.

 

Summit County

Henry Sigg, whose development proposal near U.S. 40 prompted the idea that led to the Summit County Council’s decision last week to approve a new neighborhood mixed-use zone, says he welcomes the news.

 

Sigg told KPCW News that the new zone is a good option as the Snyderville Basin faces the challenges of growth.

 

Summit County

The Summit County Council will continue to work on revising the code for accessory buildings in the Snyderville Basin.

 

But on Wednesday, the council voted to change the moratorium that’s currently in place for those structures.

 

The council, by a 4 to 1 vote, changed its temporary zoning ordinance so it would exempt accessory structures of 5,000 square feet or less.

 

Councilor Chris Robinson noted that the moratorium was enacted in March and runs until September 10th.

Basin Recreation

Keeping the Snyderville Basin trail system from being loved to death is still a challenge as representatives for Basin Recreation gave an update June 2 to the Summit County Council.

 

At least one county councilor disagrees with Basin Rec about whether permitting will have to be used to limit trail use.

 

On Wednesday, Basin Rec director Dana Jones told the council the problems didn’t arise overnight and it will take some time to solve them.

 

Summit County

The Summit County Council continues to deliberate passing a new ordinance governing accessory buildings.

 

But on Wednesday, the councilors informally agreed to modify the six-month moratorium they’ve placed on the buildings so that some smaller-scale applications can proceed.

 

The council approved a temporary zoning ordinance (TZO) in March to block any applications for accessory structures. But the council has heard from citizens fretting that they will lose any chance to put up a side building this year.

Summit County

Summit County Councilors say that they will resume deliberation on a proposed ordinance governing campgrounds and seasonal RV use at their June 30 meeting.

 

A hearing on May 26 brought out a lot of criticism, but several councilors say they believe that a problem exists and that they have to respond.

Summit County

Following a contentious history over the past few months, the proposed Whileaway Ranch Indoor Riding Arena and Horse Boarding Facility in lower Silver Creek has been approved by the Summit County Council in a 3-1 vote, overriding an earlier denial by the Snyderville Basin Planning Commission.

 

Council chair Glenn Wright and councilors Chris Robinson and Malena Stevens voted in support of the appeal. The dissenting vote came from Roger Armstrong while Doug Clyde abstained.

 

Summit County

The proposed amendments to the Snyderville Code governing accessory buildings will return to the Summit County Council in the near future. 

The council didn’t make a decision at its meeting last week on Wednesday, March 31, and asked staff for further information. The hearing brought out opinions on both sides about whether the changes would harm the equestrian character of Silver Creek.

KPCW

Summit County Council Member Chris Robinson agrees with his colleagues about not implementing a limited mask order, after the state mandate expires on Saturday, April 10.

 

But despite some heated comments directed at the council last Wednesday, Robinson still says the county needs to encourage masking up, including with private businesses, and continue vaccinations so even private mask requirements can be lifted in the future.

 

Summit County

The Summit County Council had to postpone two of the major items on their agenda Wednesday, but the councilors still had a long conversation looking at planning and housing issues in the Snyderville Basin.

 

The council was scheduled to discuss and possibly approve a proposed neighborhood mixed-use (NMU) zone. A related item, the master planned development process, was set for a public hearing and maybe a vote.

 

But due to a mistake in the notice posted by the county, both items were continued to April 7.
