You May Want To Put June 17 on Your Calendar

If you have concerns over development in the Snyderville Basin, you may want to attend a County Council meeting at the Kimball Junction Library on June 17th at 6PM. They are holding a public hearing to get citizens’ input on what we want the Basin to look like, how we feel about open space, whether we want affordable housing, how transportation should be viewed, etc.

For instance, during a meeting of the Snyderville Basin Planning Commission almost 175 Jeremy Ranch residents showed up to say they didn’t want a developer to have expanded entitlements on a hill across from the Jeremy Store. The Planning Commission and Community Development Department heard the concerns and worked to alleviate those by adding some language to the General Plan to address that.

However, recently the County Council received their first official glimpse at the General Plan and they have concerns over the language that would limit increased entitlements like that Jeremy Ranch parcel. Unless the community speaks up, that language may be removed.

Likewise, there are people within the community who are concerned with limiting development. They see large developments like Canyons and Silver Creek and say “they get to build these huge developments” why can’t I? If that’s how you feel, you’ll want to make your concern heard as well.

Either way, big changes could be coming to the Snyderville Basin. The meeting on the 17th is your chance to help shape those changes.
