VXC Development asks Heber City for Annexation

Annexation continues to be the discussion during this week’s Heber City Council Meeting, as Ivory Homes petitions for a 70 acre parcel to be annexed into the city for what could be 220 homes along Coyote Lane in the north east section of the valley. For eight months Ivory Homes has discussed proposal options to realign Coyote Lane and add single family units.

However this area is currently zoned in the county, with two units per acre in a large portion of the land in question. The planning commission and Heber City Council has grappled with questions on issues of density, water rights, increased traffic, sewer and water services, power and whether this entire area should be zoned as commercial.

Councilman Ron Crittenden asked the developers why they want to be annexed into the city, is it solely to increase the density in that area? “You come to our city and in fact you come in and what your asking for is more density, I asked you in the last meeting what’s your motivation, please explain, if it isn’t for more density, what is it? You think we’re going to let you do what the county wouldn’t expect for density.” said Crittenden. After much discussion, no final decision was made on the VXC annexation request, as the council continues to deliberate on these issues. If you are interested in learning more about the annexation area and Heber City’s General Plan the public is encouraged to attend an open house on Wednesday, March 20th from 6 – 8 pm at Heber Valley Elementary.
