Who will manage the property and who will make recreational decisions?
  • Summit County will be the landowner and will be the land use authority. 

  • Detailed decisions related to the use and long-term management will be determined during the development of the 910 management plan.  

  • No management decision for recreation will be officially determined until a thorough and detailed baseline analysis is performed.  It is important for Summit County to determine the location of, and avoid disturbance to, sensitive habitats and wildlife use areas before planning for recreational use.

  • The County has received significant comments from the public asking that the property be well-conserved and to avoid implementing plans and policies that result in the 910 becoming “overloved.”
