Canyons maintenance building decision delayed

Summit County Manager Bob Jasper has delayed a decision on the proposed relocation of the Canyons Resort ski maintenance building. The resort wants to move it from its current location on Frostwood Drive to Canyons Resort Drive, between the Grand Summit Hotel and the Hidden Creek Condominiums.

Jasper held two public hearings on Thursday, April 10, regarding the relocation, which was given a negative recommendation by the Snyderville Basin Planning Commission. The current facility on Frostwood Drive must be demolished and rebuilt elsewhere for developers to meet Jasper's Sept. 30 deadline for completion of the Canyons Golf Course. That building is on the spot where Hole 11 is to be constructed.

After the April 10 hearing, Jasper said he would most likely come to a decision by the end of the following week, but has since delayed a conclusion. County spokesperson Julie Booth said Jasper could make a decision by Wednesday.

Both hearings were well attended and featured numerous condominium owners upset about the proposed location of the maintenance building. Developers TCFC Finance Co., LLC, defended the site, saying it is an allowed use in that location and that no other sites in Canyons Resort would be feasible.
