Public hearing is slated in Kamas

Patrick Parkinson, Of the Record staff

The Eastern Summit County Planning Commission will hold a public hearing Dec. 2 to discuss the Indian Hollow development, which is an 85-lot subdivision proposed on Democrat Alley west of Kamas.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at Kamas City Hall, 170 N. Main Street.

Citizens have said the big subdivision would detract from the rural lifestyle in the Kamas Valley. The development is one of the largest neighborhoods ever proposed on the East Side of Summit County, about 15 miles east of Park City.

The hearing will give residents an opportunity to ask questions and speak about the proposal.

Neighbors are perhaps most concerned about density, according to Summit County planner Jennifer Strader.

They also worry the new subdivision could cause a water shortage and groundwater contamination in South Summit. The developer, Summit Hollow LLC, has received conceptual approval from state officials for an alternative wastewater treatment and dispersal system in the area.

Planners have reviewed whether traffic from the new subdivision would overwhelm Democrat Alley. Most of the homes would be built along the west side of the two-lane road.
