Snyderville Planning Commission

During their public input segment last week, the Summit County Council heard from a resident, living north of Interstate 80, complain that she's living next to an illegal business. The property, which is part of the Preserve neighborhood, is also coming before the Snyderville Planning Commission to seek approvals for the use of a maintenance building. In the end, the Council instructed Development Director Pat Putt to take action to get compliance on the property. Rick Brough has more.

As the Snyderville Planning Commission considered the Commons at Newpark project at this week's meeting, the debate continued between the current developers of Newpark and the original developers of the area. The major point of contention is whether the proposed Commons project complies with the Development Agreement for Newpark. Rick Brough has more.

The Snyderville Planning Commission did not come to a decision about the proposed Commons at Newpark development, even after more public input and discussions with the applicants. But in the end, the attorney for the applicants said they're asking for a vote at their next meeting with the Planning Commission.

In the meanwhile, the direction from the Snyderville commissioners was to further explore one alternative for the residential project. Rick Brough has more.
