A huge THANK YOU to the SunCrest Community! Together, we collected 418 warm winter clothing items for Heber Valley Elementary. From boots to hats, jackets to thermals, you've made a difference.
Construction on the hike and bike park near little valley has begun.
An recent article from the Draper Journal indicates:
'Little Valley, located off Traverse Road at about 1500 East, has been chosen as the site for the family-oriented mountain biking and walking trails park.
The area offers some steepness and would accommodate future parking, according to McDonald. The trails are planned to have switchbacks and other features designed to teach the etiquette involved in mountain biking and signage explaining how to use the trails. The proposed park would also cater to intermediate level mountain bikers.
…The park and trails would happen in phases, with the first phase being the trail, a trailhead with a kiosk, and educational aspects including obstacles on the trail. In addition, there are plans to have volunteers at the park occasionally to help beginning mountain bikers.
The second phase would be parking and other access.
'The city will help with the engineering, parks and trails with the design, then with crews, volunteers and in-kind help, we will get the trails done,' McDonald said.'
At the Draper City meeting on November 21st, City Council ruled 4-1 in favor of 181 lot development in SunCrest. The property is located North and East of the existing Stoneleigh Heights townhouses. Both access points will come through the existing Stoneleigh Heights town homes (Stone Leigh Drive and Haddington Road) A third access point will be an emergency access road located off of Deer Park Lane in Phase 3 of Stoneleigh Heights.
Council member Bill Colbert, a SunCrest resident, was the sole member not voting in favor of the motion. Councilmen Colbert raised many issues including safety, snow removal, and access roads, among others.
Development is expected to begin in Spring of 2015. Our understanding is that it's a multi year buildout plan with town homes, cottage style homes, and larger 1/4-1/3+ acre lots with 181 units in total.
Our understanding from previous Draper City meetings and information from the developer is that they wish to be included with SunCrest HOA although this has yet to occur. Edelweiss has already agreed to be annexed into the TRSSD.
Effective November 11th, bus stop locations have changed in SunCrest.
These changes mean:
1. All students have been assigned to a specific stop and are expected to use that stop.
2. All students should be at the stop location at least 5 minutes before the scheduled time.
3. The drivers will not be waiting. They will stop, load students, and move on to the next stop.
The map below shows the stop locations and the areas they will serve. For example: if you live in the yellow area your assigned stop is the yellow stop.

In response to complaints from residents, KUTV News reported on the story. Builder DR Horton revisited their original stance and has since said the bus stop can return back to its original location.
93% of those living in the TRSSD boundary voted on Nov. 4th to repeal the proposed budget.
Last month, a TRSSD advisory committee composed of 5 TRSSD resident members (Amy Baird, Blaine Carlton, Nathan Lunstad, Greg Nuzman, and Sharon Ullman) was formed to develop future mangement plans. A TRSDD Adminitrative Control Board will be appointed in Decemeber to take over operational control. This board will have authority to budget and manage the district including needs and services district desires.
Since the outcome of the vote, Draper City has since released the following notice:
Notice is hereby given that Draper City will hold a public hearing before the Traverse Ridge Special Service District on Tuesday, November 18, 2014, to consider adopting the Traverse Ridge Special Service District Budget.
The hearing will be held at Draper City Hall, 1020 East Pioneer Road on Tuesday, November 18, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. Inquiries may contact Bob Wylie at the Draper City offices, (801) 576-6318.
At the September 30th Draper City Council meeting, Nate Shipp on behalf of DAI/Edelweiss presented text (link above) for the proposed zoning change to allow for 181 units to be built adjacent to Stoneleigh Heights. Some City Council members raised concerns regarding safety with added traffic, additional wear and tear to roads, adjacent property, water, and need for additional parks.
Our understanding from previous Draper City meetings and information from the developer is that they wish to be included with SunCrest HOA and have already agreed to being annexed into the TRSSD. Our understanding is that it's a multi year buildout plan with town homes, cottage style homes, and larger 1/4-1/3+ acre lots with around 180 units in total.
Join the city council for a hearing on this matter at Draper City Hall, 1020 East Pioneer Road, on October 21, 2014, at 6:00 p.m. Inquiries may contact Dan Boles at the Draper City offices, 801-576-6335.
