Draper delays 55 acre surplus, planning SunCrest open space

Draper City Council unanimously voted to delay the surplus of 55 acres of SunCrest area land until a definitive conversation easement can be put into place for the greater SunCrest area. The decision comes after receving public input in a crowded public hearing and efforts led by Draper Mayor Troy Walker in exploring a conversation easement with Salt Lake County.

Walker said, “There are a lot of questions that are not answered and I think the public comment has given us a lot of opportunities and avenues to look….conservation easement is something I am very in favor of.”

In addition to the conversation easement and as part of their overall plan for SunCrest open space, the City will look to surplus areas for probable residential development in an effort to help pay off the debt incurred from the original SunCrest purchase. In the coming weeks or months, Draper City will hold meetings regarding the surplus (sale) of additional SunCrest land and a more definitive outline of where a perpetual conversation easement will be.

Draper City Property Surplus | Mercer Hollow Area

After approving a 7.3 million dollar offer from Blue Bison Development on 110 acres of SunCrest area property that was declared surplus (surplus= the city’s way of saying “for sale”), Draper City appears to be looking to sell more SunCrest area land.

After a proposal from the developer at an October business meeting to purchase additional land from the City, Draper City will seek public comment on the matter at the December 6th City Council meeting. Below is an overview of the newly proposed surplus area.

The proposed parcel, along with the 110 acres currently under contract are in the same proximity as the 20-acre parcel known as Mercer Mountain Estaes that was used to facilitate a settlement agreement between a private developer and Draper City.  It’s possible each neighboring development could provide secondary access to each other.
