Cabinet shop could re-open

A custom wood-working cabinet business could open in Francis if approved during Thursday's City Council meeting.

The application is for a conditional use permit for an existing building located at 1703 S. State Road 32 in Francis. According to Francis City Planning Chair Julie Keyes, a Francis resident wants to re-open a cabinet shop in the building, which had previously been a cabinet shop owned by his father.

"He wants to rejuvenate this business," Keyes said.

Keyes said the Planning Commission did pass a positive recommendation on the conditional use permit but asked the applicant to bring certain things up to code. The building is roughly 1,800 square feet, Keyes said.

A public hearing regarding the conditional use permit for the business will be held Thursday, Dec. 12, at 7 p.m. at the Francis City Community Building, 2319 S. Spring Hollow Road. Comments on the proposed application can be made at the hearing or submitted in writing to the City Recorder before 4:30 p.m. the day of the hearing. For more information, call Francis City at 435-783-6236.

Winter trails etiquette

Mountain Trails Foundation, which says it currently has about 12 kilometers of packed and groomed trails in Round Valley, the Rail Trail and the Snyderville Basin, offers winter trail users a list of winter trail etiquette tips, whether one is out skiing, snowshoeing, snow biking, running or walking a dog. They include:

  • Please hike/bike/snowshoe on the outside edge of the groomed surface - opposite the classic lanes if set.

  • Skiers, please stay in control and check your speed in congested areas - especially near trailheads.

  • Downhill trail users must yield to uphill traffic - same as the summer.

  • Please avoid post-holing/leaving tire ruts in the middle of the track during soft-snow conditions.

  • Please keep your dog(s) under control at all times and avoid stressing the wildlife.

  • Please pick up after your pets and do not leave the baggies on the edge of the trail!
