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.
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.
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.
With Utah’s mask mandate ending on April 10, the Summit County Council on Wednesday considered whether to extend a local, limited mask order beyond that date.
Following a recommendation from County Health Director Rich Bullough, the council decided against an extension. But, the councilors did talk about supporting local businesses that voluntarily continue requiring masks.
Bullough told councilors that COVID-19 case numbers have been decreasing in Summit County and across the country.
The Summit County Council on Wednesday night will be holding a public hearing on proposed Code amendments governing accessory buildings, just a week after the Snyderville Basin Planning Commission recommended the changes.
The amendments to the code break up accessory buildings into two categories: minor accessory structures would be allowed up to 2,000 square feet, with another minor building on the parcel up to 400 square feet.
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.
