The Summit County Council will meet in session on Wednesday, Sept. 3, and the Silver Creek Village once again appears on the agenda.

Shortly after 4:30 p.m., the Council is scheduled to discuss and possibly approve an extension to the deadline for the Silver Creek Village to have a development agreement prepared by the development and the county and submitted to Council for approval.

The Silver Creek Village, located on 240 acres south of Interstate 80 and east of U.S. 40, would feature 939 multi-family units, 351 single-family units and 50,000 square feet of neighborhood commercial space, according to previous reporting by The Park Record.

County Planner Jennifer Strader said a draft of the development agreement has been submitted to the Snyderville Basin Planning Commission, and that the commission is still reviewing it.

In July 2013 the County Council set a deadline of September 28, 2014 for the development agreement to be submitted and approved.

Staff is recommending that the deadline be extended until March 31, 2015, Strader said. The delays in the processing of the development agreement have not been caused by the applicant, she said.

The owners would like the development agreement approved in the near future so that the development can start construction in the spring of 2015.


In other business, County Council will:

  • interview applicants for vacancies on the Summit County Restaurant Tax Advisory Committee and the Summit County Recreation Arts and Park Advisory Committee;
  • discuss the new county website, launched two weeks ago;
  • hear a presentation regarding ONE Wasatch from Nathan Rafferty, president and CEO of Ski Utah;
  • Discuss a possible amendment to the Jeremy Center Settlement Agreement.

The meeting's work session will begin at 2 p.m. and public input for items not on the agenda is scheduled for 6 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Sheldon Richins Building at 1885 W. Ute Boulevard at Kimball Junction.
