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.
