Summit County to host open house for Cline Dahle property development

Community can provide feedback at open house on June 13 from 5 to 7 p.m.

SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — Summit County is seeking community input on the potential development of the Cline Dahle property, an approximately 15-acre site near Jeremy Ranch Elementary School. An open house is scheduled for Thursday, June 13, at the Richins Building from 5 to 7 p.m.

The County Courthouse acquired the Cline Dahle property for $3.7 million in January 2017. According to Jeff Jones, AICP, economic development and housing director, “The Cline Dahle property consists of two parcels. One parcel is 19.2 acres, and the other is 10.4 acres for a combined acreage of 29.6 acres. It is estimated that of that 29.6 acres, 15-18 acres are potentially usable.”

At a recent meeting, the county council discussed several potential projects, including a new transit station, warehouse for Summit Bike Share, outdoor education center, small-scale commercial uses, and public gathering spaces. The upcoming open house aims to gather community feedback to refine the project’s vision.

The draft vision statement highlights the importance of creating a space where families and employees within Summit County can live, work, play, and recreate affordably. The property is zoned rural residential, allowing a maximum density of one unit per 20 acres, but officials may seek zoning changes to increase flexibility and allow for mixed uses.

In a public meeting on January 31, 2024, planning staff conducted a charette for the Council to consider the site’s potential uses. This charette built upon an existing conditions analysis and started the process of establishing a vision for the site. Six presentation boards covered context, conditions, potential purposes, compatible housing types, public space incorporation, and implementation approaches.

Since January, planning staff has conducted two additional charettes with other departments and service providers. Feedback from these sessions has been integrated into draft vision, goals, and design suggestion statements. These drafts will be presented to the Council and shared with the public for input at the open house.

County planners will present finalized goals and seek potential partnerships based on community input later this year.
