The Eastern Summit County Planning Commission is scheduled to continue its discussion of a proposal to construct 70 new units at the High Star Ranch near Kamas.

The debate recently drew a crowd to Kamas City Hall eager to support or deride the plan. The Planning Commission could decide tonight whether to recommend the Summit County Commission approve the subdivision between Kamas and Marion on S.R. 32.

East Side planning commissioners are scheduled to continue the discussion at 170 N. Main in Kamas Wednesday around 7 p.m.

Zoning at the High Star Ranch allows just over 40 houses to be constructed on the land, according to Summit County Planner Don Sargent.

clustering development to preserve open space, however, builders hope to build 70 units, a guest lodge and bunkhouse on what were the S Bar S and Tri-Star ranches.

Still, neighbors in the Kamas Valley aren’t excited about the prospect of more houses on the hillside.

The subdivision is planned on about 1,038 acres adjacent to the Wasatch-Cache National Forest.

Princess party planned

Members of the public are invited to help memorialize the death of Alexis Paget — a 3-year-old from Park City who was killed this year in Parleys Canyon — with a princess party to honor the girl.

The event is scheduled May 5 at 1 p.m. at the Mountain Vineyard Church at 1401 Kearns Blvd. in Park City.

Paget and Parkite Rayn Ewing, 17, died when a woman crossed the median on Interstate 80 into oncoming traffic and nearly struck both vehicles they were riding in head on.
