Heber City

Thousands of acres of land recently annexed into Heber City could be part of a conservation easement. The city might team up with Summit Land Conservancy to ensure that the open space is protected forever. 

Last year, Heber City annexed the 8,000 acre Sorenson Property just north of the city boundaries. There are 5,700 approved units on the property to be built over the next 40 years. The annexation agreement saved 5,000 acres as public open space.

Last week, the Summit Land Conservancy announced that it is partnering with the Ogden Valley Land Trust to protect a 1,080-acre property near Huntsville that was once home to a Catholic monastery.

 

The Abbey of Our Lady of the Holy Trinity was a Trappist Cistercian monastery settled in 1947 about 67 miles north of Park City in eastern Weber County. The monks kept bees, farmed and ranched on the land, and they were known for their locally produced creamed honey.

The Summit Land Conservancy is working to acquire a 15-acre parcel of land near Oakley that it hopes would be both natural open space and the site for a “green cemetery” where decedents would be buried naturally in the earth.

 

An Eastern Summit County open-space committee just recommended partial funding for the project, which partners the Land Conservancy with a Salt Lake funeral parlor, but there is more funding needed and another hearing ahead for the effort.
