Heber City will be holding an open house on Wednesday for public review of recommendations from the Parks and Trails Committee. The public is invited to attend virtually over Zoom. The meeting will begin at 6pm and again at 7pm, August 26, 2020. The public open house sessions will be recorded and available for viewing afterwards on the Heber City website.

The city has been working with an outside consulting organization, Landmark Design, to create a vision for the city’s future parks. They met in January 2020 to begin the project. An advisory committee was then created, including public officials and members of the community, to discuss different options. Landmark Design analyzed current parks and future projections for growth. The committee later discussed ideas presented and, together with the consultants, created a plan. It is designed to meet recreational desires, while maintaining open space and an interconnected parks and trails system. According to Landmark Design, “the plan is intended to be synergistic with the Envision Heber 2050 general plan and will propel Heber towards achieving a world-class park system for the community.”

Now the city wants public input on the draft master plan before the process continues. The document is available online, and the public open house gives members of the community an opportunity to discuss the draft master plan.

The Zoom meeting ID is 822 9565 9118, and the passcode is 276398. A copy of the preliminary plan is available here:
