Positions on volunteer regional advisory groups open for application

Summit County, Utah (May 27, 2022) — In this week’s council meeting, Summit County Council unanimously approved Ordinance 935, establishing the Open Space Advisory Committee (OSAC), an important next step in the use of General Obligation (GO) bond funds to identify, acquire and preserve open space in Summit County. Voters passed the bond in the November 2021 election.

“As a council, we believe the organization of OSAC will provide fair, equitable recommendations for preserving open spaces and agricultural properties,” County Council Chair Chris Robinson said. “We are grateful to our residents for prioritizing conservation in Summit County by supporting the GO Bond last November.”

To be involved in the process of recommending properties for preservation or conservation, interested residents must apply to serve on one of three regional advisory groups: West Summit, North Summit, or South Summit. Each seven-member Regional Advisory Group will be comprised of the following members, and preference may be given to individuals with knowledge and experience related to agriculture, natural resources, or recreation.

Individuals interested in serving on one of the Regional Advisory Groups can apply at: https://bit.ly/OSAC22.

West Summit Regional Advisory Group

  • 1 representative who resides within the incorporated boundaries of Park City.
  • 1 representative who resides within the boundaries of the unincorporated Snyderville Basin.
  • 5 at-large community representatives who reside in West Summit.

 North Summit Regional Advisory Group

  • 1 representative who resides within the incorporated boundaries of Coalville City.
  • 1 representative who resides within the incorporated boundaries of the Town of Henefer.
  • 1 representative who resides within the boundaries of the unincorporated area of North Summit.
  • 4 at-large community representatives who reside in North Summit.

 South Summit Regional Advisory Group

  • 1 representative who resides within the incorporated boundaries of Kamas City
  • 1 representative who resides within the incorporated boundaries of Oakley City
  • 1 representative who resides within the incorporated boundaries of Francis City
  • 1 representative who resides within the boundaries of the unincorporated area of South Summit
  • 3 at-large community representatives who reside in South Summit

 Once selected, each Regional Advisory Group will nominate three members for consideration to serve on OSAC. The nine-member OSAC will evaluate property submissions and forward those recommendations to the County Manager, who will work with the committee to finalize recommendations for County Council regarding which land purchases or conservation easements should be considered for purchase with GO Bond funds.
