Believe it or not, there are quite a few that want to distance themselves from Park City (by name) Park City is quite generic in term, encompassing quite a large area. Not all want the "status" (perceived) that comes with the name Park City.

I ride PC! I love Park City, it gives me 95% of my yearly income. I could care less what they end up calling the basin, as long as they don't stop calling me. Snyderville City would be a dumb name though. I know, in a slap in the face moment, I suggest they name their new city, Vail, or Aspen. Hey, it could work, right?

The County should probably realize that THEY cannot incorporate a City. Incorporation is a citizen initiative and has to be voted on by the majority of registered voters within the proposed boundaries of the City. The county could do the feasabiltiy study and lay the groundwork, but they cannot initiate incorporation.

Residents should be given a say in renaming the Basin area. More popular is "Moose Valley" associating the many moose in this area. We have always disliked the name Snyderville; The unpopularity of the name Snyderville is evident in the fact that there are no local businesses listed that have used the name; only Coalville courthouse officials have made use of the name as in Snyderville Basin; or Snyderville Water Reclamation (sewer) District; Or Snyderville Basin Recreation Special District; These examples are not a valid reason to name the entire 84098 area Snyderville; Also the entire 84098 zip code area is in the Park City School District and should be incorporated together not just a portion of it leaving the north west subdivisions around Summit Park isolated.

McMullin stated that Summit County provides tremendous levels and amounts of municipal services to those residents (from a county perspective) but Summit County municipal also expects homeowner associations to pick up the costs of many services such as street lights, maintenance of neighborhood parks and waterways, and drainage systems, and perhaps other services.

We would be very much in favor of incorporation if Summit County municipal would support the dissolution of homeowners associations no longer supported by the homeowners. Why should homeowners have to pay taxes and HOA dues for the same services.
