SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — In response to the heavy amount of public input given at the December 1 Summit County Council meeting about the proposal to bring 1,100 homes to Kimball Junction, Dakota Pacific, the real estate firm behind the project, has asked to discuss the amended Summit Research Park development agreement at the Wednesday, December 15 meeting.
A strong majority of residents at the Dec. 1 meeting said they were against the project, primarily because of the “horrible” traffic in Kimball Junction that exists already. There is no vote scheduled on Wednesday, in what is the last county council meeting of the year.

The council is also set to meet with Health Director Phil Bondurant to discuss extending the local public health emergency through the end of the school year, to June 30, 2022.
The order requires face-coverings if any individual school campus reaches a two percent 14-day COVID-19 positivity rate among the total number of students, staff, and faculty. The rules stay in effect for two weeks. If the case threshold drops below 2% after those 14 days, the order is dropped. However, if the threshold stays above 2%, the order is extended.
Serving as the Governing Board of the North Summit Fire Service District, the council may approve an employment contract for Michael Brandt Judd to serve as Interim Fire Chief. Many Summit County firefighters spoke out after former Chief Ian Nelson was terminated without reason in November.
The meeting will take place at the Richins Building in Kimball Junction starting at 3:05 pm.
