January 13, 2023 – RAP Recreation Grant Recipients, Community Visioning Open Houses & UDOT Public Comment Period

RAP Recreation Grant Recipients 

The Summit County RAP Recreation Committee was in front of the Council this week to present their amended 2022 grant recommendations to the Council.

For some context, the RAP Recreation funding is used to finance, in whole or in part, parks, botanical operations and recreational facilities throughout the County. 

The committee received sixteen (16) online applications from across the County for a total funding pool of $1,140,000. They recommended fourteen (14) organizations be funded. 

Council approved the recommendations. You can find a full list of recipients on the news section on the summitcounty.org homepage

Kimball Junction Open Houses 

Earlier this week, UDOT hosted two public scoping meetings, one in-person and one virtual, to share information on their Kimball Junction Environmental Impact Study and answer questions. 

In case you missed the open houses, you can still watch a live stream of Wednesday’s meeting on the Summit County, UT Facebook change. It was a great conversation with the project team and members of the public asked some insightful questions. I highly recommend. 

Just a reminder to the community, UDOT is still hosting a public scoping comment period for the project that will be open until Jan. 27, 2023. Community members can give comment online at the bottom of the project website: kimballjunctioneis.udot.utah.gov. The website also has more information on the study, the public meetings so be sure to check it out.
