Snyderville Basin Cemetery District

Mission Statement

The mission of the Snyderville Basin Cemetery District (District) is to provide one or more public cemeteries to benefit residents of the Snyderville Basin area, and to provide for the improvement, maintenance, and beautification of such cemeteries. 

Background

In 2012, the Summit County Council (Council) approved the creation of the Snyderville Basin Cemetery District (District) in response to the need for a cemetery in the Snyderville Basin (Park City Cemetery is not available to folks living outside Park City limits and there are no cemetery or mortuary services presently being provided in the Basin). In 2023, the Council appointed a five-member Board of Directors (Board) for the District. The mission of the District is to provide one or more public cemeteries to benefit residents of the Snyderville Basin area, and to provide for the improvement, maintenance, and beautification of such cemeteries. In September 2023, the Board had its initial meeting, and has met at least monthly since then to determine how to accomplish the goals established for the District by the Council.

Community Engagement

The Board is currently in the early stages of identifying potential sites for the cemetery and learning more from the public about their desires and preferences for cemetery amenities and offerings. To that end, the Board issued the following survey for members of the public to provide early input into its planning efforts. All Snyderville Basin residents are encouraged to submit a survey to help guide the Board’s activities related to establishing a new cemetery.
