Dear Stringtown Neighbors,
Since our organization moved to Eden nearly a year ago, we have been thrilled by the prospect of creating a permanent community on Powder Mountain while collaborating with the Upper Ogden Valley community to drive smart and sustainable economic growth. Due to concern raised by activity on Stringtown road we wanted to help put into the issue into further context.
The home on Stringtown road is used as a private residence by a member of the Summit team. More than 40 members of the Summit team also live in more than a dozen other houses across the valley.
Summit has leases on four commercial spaces throughout the valley. These include the offices above Carlos and Harley’s, a neighboring warehouse in that complex, the entire bottom floor of the Pineview Lodge and nearly the entire Wolf Creek Welcome Center. These commercial spaces serve as Summit's only office space.
Because the Summit team now numbers 40 (up from 12 a year ago), visits of other team members to other houses, as well as hosting of visiting friends and family, can drive a lot of traffic. Given the 19-acre size of the Stringtown property and its amenities (playing field, basket ball court, volleyball court) it has served as a meeting point for visiting friends and family. Carpooling vans have been used to minimize traffic, at the request of neighbors.
In the future, there will not be vans driving down Stringtown during school days. We’ve also asked Summit team members to minimize visits to this home during school days.
We’d be happy to meet with residents to discuss any further issues we can take and are confident that Stringtown road will continue to be a safe place for kids.
We’ll be hosting a Q+A on this subject at Summit’s office--formerly known as the Wolf Creek Welcome Center--on Tuesday April 2, at 630pm.
The Sunnit Team
