Summit County Community Development COVID-19 Response Plan

Public Health Order - Stay at Home

Orden de Salud - Quédese en Casa

March 17, 2020

In alignment with Governor Herbert’s announcement regarding the dismissal of schools across the State of Utah, and Summit County Health Department’s Public Health Order, non-essential services in Summit County may be reduced in order to minimize the spread of COVID-19. Additionally, public access to County services will be reduced at the Summit County Courthouse and the Richins Services Building.

Limited staff will be present at the County public facilities remaining open during established operating hours. Patrons wishing to conduct business in person are asked to email or call in an effort to comply with established social distancing protocol.

Specific service adjustments to the Community Development Department include:

Offices

Customer inquiries will be primarily received by email and phone with in person interaction strongly discouraged at the Summit County Courthouse and the Richins Services Building.

Building Permits

Permits can continue to be applied for through the Summit County E360 permitting software system. https://summit.co.ut.eprocess360.com/login/link/dashboard

Permits will be reviewed and issued online just as they are now.

Building and Code Enforcement Inspections

Inspections and site visits will be prioritized and anticipated to be provided in a timely manner. However, service levels may vary in accordance with Health Department recommendations. Code enforcement concerns will be prioritized and enforced to the extent possible via email and phone calls. Site visits will be minimized.

Planning Department

Planning questions will be answered via telephone or e-mail. Please call (435) 336-3124 or e-mail at mhardy@summitcounty.org 

While we understand that some of these precautionary measures may be an inconvenience, they are being implemented out of an abundance of caution for the community. We appreciate your patience, understanding and support. Summit County is committed to providing services with consideration of the health and safety of our staff and the public.

Districts

To meet the diverse needs and goals of the county, there are 2 separate and distinct planning districts:

  • Eastern Summit Planning District: The Eastern Summit County Planning District serves the interests of citizens living in the more rural eastern side of the county in the unincorporated areas surrounding the cities of Henefer, Coalville, Oakley, Kamas, and Francis.
  • Snyderville Basin Planning District: The Snyderville Basin Planning District serves the interests of citizens living in the more urban western side of the county in the unincorporated areas surrounding Park City.
