We are excited to announce our third annual warm winter clothes drive. In 2014, we introduced you to the needs of families in the Heber Valley community; a community not too far or too different from ours. Many residents in the Heber community are the backbone work forces in the hotel, ski and tourism industries, often working long hours for low wages. Over the past two years, your response has been truly amazing! Together, we have gathered over 1,000 items and when we delivered your donations, we saw firsthand the difference you made.
We need your help again! We’re asking residents to donate new or gently used items warm winter clothes including:
Jackets • Coats • Winter Gloves • Winter Hats • Winter Pants • Winter Boots
Here’s how you can help: Drop off anything from the list in the blue donation bins at the SunCrest Community Clubhouse through November 28th, 2016.
Thank you in advance for your warm generosity.
SunCrest Area Land – What’s the latest?
There’s a lot of hubbub regarding the future of SunCrest right now. As many know, the original SunCrest developer declared bankruptcy, a few potential purchases didn’t materialize, and Draper City was able to purchase about 2,400 acres for $5.6M exactly 4 years ago. This, along with the failed development, effectively nixed the original master plan that had been approved, and has given the City an opportunity to set forth their own vision for the area.
In 2015, Draper City put the wheels in motion to develop an “Open Space Master Plan.” With the help of outside consultants, countless hours of input, open houses, and surveys, this plan was adopted early 2016 to serve as an “open space element of the general plan.”
As part of their overall plan, a few parcels are being sold for development, and Draper City will soon hold another meeting regarding the surplus (sale) of additional SunCrest land. With development on the horizon, we thought we’d take a look at the history of other surplus land, and their status today since being purchased.
1- Mercer Mountain Estates
This ~20 acre parcel neighbors Hidden Canyon Estates and will provide pristine mountain and city views. This particular parcel was used to facilitate a settlement between the City and a private owner.
This ~20 acre parcel neighbors the current Maple Hollow subdivision and zoning allows for multiunit density. This too was used to facilitate a settlement between the City and private owner.
3-Blue Bison Development
This ~100 acre parcel was formally put up for sale in 2014 and recently went under contract with Blue Bison Development for likely residential development.
4- December 2016 Surplus Proposal
Draper is currently considering a surplus of an additional 30-40 acres located along the road leading into the Blue Bison Development parcel.
As more SunCrest land is being sold, open space plans put into place, new trails made, and the Hidden Canyon Estates and Edelweiss subdivisions bring new a wave of new construction not seen since the “boom” of the 2000’s, it’s certainly a busy time up here. Whether you’re new or old to SunCrest, for or against development, an avid outdoor enthusiast or homebody, we encourage voicing your comments, concerns and compliments when change is presented. Collectively, we’re a passionate group and that’s what makes this neighborhood such a unique and diverse community.
Our SunCrest Market Update is a hyper-local analysis of the most up-to-date information regarding the SunCrest real estate market. The previous month’s SunCrest housing information and future editions are released monthly.
For those canvassing the area searching for the perfect place to call home, the buck(s) stop here. Figuratively and literally.
This 2-story sits proudly along the Maple Hollow corridor and is perfect for any outdoor enthusiast extraordinaire. Seriously, there’s not a single house between you and the Maple Hollow trailhead. Mother Nature is a great neighbor in our book.
The inside? Well for starters, check out that bonus room. Our thoughts? It’s perfect for a telecommuter, homeworker, or wildlife watcher – just don’t creep the neighbors with your binoculars.
The rest of the main floor is screaming for you to host this year’s ugly sweater party. The open concept kitchen and family room is huge!
Even your tallest friends can fit under those nine-foot ceilings. The home was recently updated with new stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, carpet, and that oh-so-stylish wood looking tile.
Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and the laundry room provide ample space upstairs, and downstairs is bursting with possibilities (theater room, gym, or a place to create YouTube cat videos).
Pack your things, we’ll see you at the open house.
