County Rents “Largest Conference Hall in Kimball Junction” for Tech Center Hearing


Faced with significant public interest in the proposal to build a new neighborhood in Kimball Junction, Summit County sought a location in the Snyderville Basin that could accommodate a large crowd.

Authorities said on Friday that the county had rented “the largest conference hall in Kimball Junction.”

The public contribution session is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Wednesday, December 1 at the Newpark Hotel Conference Center, 1476 Newpark Blvd.

County councilors said they would need a space larger than the council chamber in the Richins building, which can accommodate around 100 people.

About 150 people attended Wednesday’s discussion, either virtually or in person, although members of the public were not allowed to comment on the draft.

Developer Dakota Pacific Real Estate is proposing to build 1,100 homes in Kimball Junction, as well as a hotel and offices. Critics, who have been heard and numerous, say there is little benefit to the project. Supporters say it will increase the chances of the state undertaking expensive construction projects needed to address traffic issues at the congested entrance to the Park City area.

The meeting will also be available to stream online. For more information, including Zoom meeting details and parking suggestions, visit
