The Summit County Council on November 20th was introduced to the Neighborhood Mixed Use Zone—a concept that staff planners think can help change patterns of living in the Snyderville Basin.   

The Mixed-Use Zone, which got a recommendation from the Snyderville Planning Commisison, is being submitted in conjunction with a specific project—The Marketplace at Silver Creek proposed by developer Henry Sigg near the Highway 40 frontage road.

It envisions a neighborhood node, somewhat self-sufficient so that residents don’t always have to drive to Kimball Junction.

Summit County

The Summit County Council on November 20th approved an application to the state to be classified as an Enterprise Zone.

And, as Council Chairman Roger Armstorng noted, that raises questions about what the county’s economy will be in the future.   

The Enterprise zoning, which encourages development through tax breaks, would apply to commercial, industrial and agricultural areas in the unincorporated county.

Previously, we reported on a meeting where Summit County and Park City officials did not seem to be on the same page about what will happen at the Bonanza Arts and Culture District.

County Council Chairman Roger Armstrong commented afterward.

County officials on November 18th said they were concerned about a transit center being located in the Arts and Culture District.    Park City representatives said that was news to them.

Roger Armstrong said they’re just trying to discuss how the facility is going to be done.

Summit County Council Chairman Roger Armstrong says it was appropriate for the Council to send a letter of concern to the Utah Association of Counties, and take issue with incidents where members of the group are making politicized comments and singling out perceived dissenters.   

Armstrong told KPCW on Thursday that he hasn’t been to many UAC-style events.    The most recent was a National Association of Counties convention in Washington D. C., which included a number of Utah officials.        

The Summit County Council is being asked to think about some major changes for their solid waste—such as the county taking on the job of trash collection itself.

Council Chairman Roger Armstrong says whatever happens, their job is to manage the public’s money as best they can.  

Armstrong told KPCW  he doesn’t want to get too far ahead of Landfill Superintendent Tim Loveday, who will report soon with a consultant study on the county’s trash.

He did say, though, that he wants to focus on recycling.   Armstrong asked, can the county do a better job?
