Judge rules SB84s2 does not apply to Dakota Pacific's Kimball Junction property

Yesterday (June 15), Third District Court Judge Richard Mrazik ruled that Dakota Pacific's 2023 special purpose legislation, SB84s2, does not apply to its property at Kimball Junction.

"Dakota Pacific's ham-fisted tactic to subvert the Summit County community and Summit County's legislative process and instead lobby the Utah Legislature to: impair a 15-year old, carefully negotiated contract; and override local land use authority and our community's right to local self government has failed," Summit County Attorney Margaret Olson said.

"Dakota Pacific’s malicious deployment of lobbyists to spread false allegations that Summit County inhibits and blocks development projects which include affordable housing remains of great concern," Summit County Council Chair Roger Armstrong said. "Such allegations are patently false and belied by affordable housing projects negotiated and/or incentivized by Summit County over the last several years. Summit County's careful planning provides additional housing for more than 3,000 individuals and families at 80% AMI or less. In several instances, those projects are 100% affordable rather than the woefully inadequate 10% minimum affordable housing in the special purpose legislation that Dakota Pacific obtained from the Utah Legislature."
Summit County will take a moment to celebrate today’s decision and then turn its attention to the remaining claims surrounding the special purpose legislation in this matter. Summit County will continue to protect local control over local lands.
