A Feb. 11th hearing hosted by the Snyderville Planning Commission, on the proposed expansion of the Mountain Life Church in Silver Creek, brought out a crowd that filled the room and supported the project.

The Planning Commission didn’t make a decision, putting off the item to get more details on some of their concerns.   But the planning panel did not raise any major objections to the proposal.

The Mountain Life Church in Silver Creek is going to a public hearing before the Snyderville Planning Commission Tuesday night, with a proposal to expand the church and its parking lot.

The application comes shortly after the Summit County Council decided on a public road connection that goes along that property.    But County Development Director Pat Putt says that the Council’s decision and the Church’s proposal are separate issues.   

The Snyderville Commisison meets at 4:30 on February 11th at the Richins Services Building.

This Saturday, Mountain Life Church is hosting Mountainlands Community Housing for a seminar on affordable housing. The event is meant to educate those in need and those who can help.

Laura Behnke grew up in Park City and is now a realtor and the caregiving director at Mountain Life Church. Behnke says that both jobs fuel her interest in affordable housing.

The Summit County Council on Wednesday heard from the Mountain Life Church, located in the Silver Creek neighborhood, which is looking to apply for an expansion of its site. However, the 16-year-old church has an unusual development history, and after prolonged discussion, council members were unable to settle on a legal way that the church could proceed. Rick Brough has more.
