There’s more development in motion in SunCrest! Recently, Draper City Council approved a master development agreement regarding the properties known as Hidden Canyon Estates, Mercer Mountain Estates and Lakeview Heights.
Hidden Canyon Estates
Located adjacent to the Stoneleigh Heights Townhomes and the future Edelweiss development, the agreement allows up to 300 single-family homes with a minimum lot requirement of 7,500 sq. ft. The developer will contribute $500,0000 towards the construction of trails/trailhead in either the first or second phase.
Mercer Mountain Estates
This 20-acre parcel, acquired in the Zion’s Bank acquisition, will be limited to 50 single-family homes with a minimum lot requirement of 12,000 sq. ft. The agreement will allow for a gated community if desired and all roads within MME will be private streets.
This 20-acre parcel, commonly referred to as the “concrete jungle,” was also acquired in the Zion’s Bank acquisition. This parcel will allow townhomes or condos and be limited to 160 units and all roads within LH will be private streets.
…To the highest bidder. Which unfortunately, was not the HOA. In case you missed the most recent HOA meeting, Tod Bean and our Board of Trustees updated the residents on the status of the (former) DR Horton Sales Office.
At HOA meeting, it was communicated that the HOA was in conversations to acquire the building but talks failed to materialize. The HOA stated they made several attempts to negotiate with DR Horton and raised their offer (undisclosed) multiple times. The HOA stated they felt they had an agreement with DR Horton only to hear back from DR Horton that they received a higher (presumptively) bid.
The sale of the building includes the access road(s) to the clubhouse, the parking stalls located on the East side of Village Green Drive, and East side of the parking lot in front of the community clubhouse. According to the Wasatch Front Regional MLS, the property sold for $490,000.
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.
