Controlled Burn Day - Monday, February 3rd
A few weeks ago the Conservancy announced its preparations for a controlled burn of organic material. With the direction of state and local fire authorities, the Conservancy has scheduled this event for the morning of Monday, February 3rd. With the oversight and assistance of the State of Utah and Park City Fire District, the Conservancy will conduct a controlled burn of a large collection of organic matter near the Equestrian Center as part of the Conservancy’s efforts to reduce hazardous fire fuels.
As owners within the community, there are a few things you need to know:
- You are invited to watch! We invite Promontory owners to visit the site on the day of the burn, where fire officials will be available to answer questions and offer further education on the process. Please do not bring anything to add to the pile. Your trash, clippings, Christmas trees, etc. will not be accepted and you will be asked to dispose of it elsewhere.
- The total burn time is expected to take several hours. During that time Conservancy, staff will be learning proper burning techniques for future burns. Fire professionals will be onsite through the whole event for proper monitoring and containment.
- Do not call dispatch or emergency response to report the fire. They will be aware of the burn and appreciate not being alerted when it is not an emergency. There may be some smoke smell through the community, but by doing the burn under ideal weather and wind conditions it should be minimal. We do not expect the pile to smolder excessively after the burn. If you have any questions that day please contact Joe Ellis.
- As part of the community’s Firewise plan, the Conservancy may offer complimentary pickup of certain homeowner organic material for future burns. The scope of that service has not been decided, but the State has suggested
this as a responsible way to reduce hazardous fuels throughout Promontory.
This winter season, the Conservancy has noticed an increase in owners pushing their driveway snow across the road and onto the right-of-way area immediately across from their homes. We ask that you please stop doing this. In addition to being a nuisance, trespass, and safety concern, it creates unnecessary work for our snow removal crew, taking them away from more pressing removal tasks.
If you must do this, the Conservancy insists (1) the snow be moved at least two feet off of the edge of the asphalt; (2) the push must be clean and any residual snow be cleared from the road; and (3) you have permission to push the snow from the owner of the land to where the snow is moved.
For questions regarding snow removal of roads and at cabins, please contact our Snow Removal Team, Darrien Nielsen (435.333.4074), or Joe Ellis (435.333.4014).
Trash & Recycling Update
A friendly reminder that trash and recycling are now picked up on Friday instead of Thursday.
This is a permanent change. Recycling will continue to be picked up every other week.
In order to make snow removal easier, we ask that you please put your bins out either Thursday night or early Friday morning, though no later than 7:00 am. If a bin is left out past noon on Saturday, the Conservancy staff will return it to the home and a $25 service fee will be assessed.
With the ice and snow ahead of us, please be conscious of road conditions while driving and slow down. The changing of seasons also brings out more wildlife, which are frequently found on our roads, so please be alert and share the road to protect yourself and our native animals.
Our contracted snow removal service has been on site placing road markers and staging supplies and equipment.
If you have a snow emergency please contact concierge at 435.333.4000 or click link below.
As described in Article 5 of the Conservancy By-Laws, there are a few committees that act as advisors to the Board on certain Conservancy matters. The term has expired for the standing committees, so the Board is looking to fill these positions in part with owners who can serve a two-year term.
- Covenants Committee – the appeals body for Conservancy enforcement actions; five members. This group conducts hearings in accordance with Section 3.24 of the By-Laws and makes a recommendation to the Board regarding upholding violations and fines. This group meets on an as-needed basis, with no regularly scheduled commitment.
- Finance Committee– assists the Board and Treasurer in preparing the Conservancy budget; three members. The Board expects this group shall meet approximately once per quarter.
- Physical Maintenance Committee – assists with the maintenance of common areas; three members. The Board expects this group shall meet approximately once per quarter.
- Dispute Resolution Committee– mediates disputes concerning the interpretation of community rules and governing documents. This group meets on an as-needed basis, with no regularly scheduled commitment. Each member of this committee is expected to attend a Board-approved course on dispute resolution.
- Firewise Committee – assists in the rollout of Firewise standards in Promontory; ad hoc. The Conservancy wants many owners involved with this group to provide perspective and disseminate tips and best practices to neighbors, with the goal of fire preparedness.

Be Prepared. Know Your Exits.
- Promontory Ranch Road to exit out the Main Gate or Equestrian Gate, when practicable. These routes are paved and lead to major thoroughfares better able to handle traffic.
- Take Painted Valley Pass south as if going to the Nicklaus Golf Course, but continuing onto the dirt road where the paving ends near the driving range, which eventually leads to Brown’s Canyon
- Go west on the dirt road off of the north side of Saddlehorn Drive in Bison Bluffs neighborhood, near the pump house, which will ultimately connect with Silver Gate Drive, Pace Frontage Road, and Promontory Ranch Road outside of the Equestrian Gate.
Our community is active, out, and about. Be safe when walking. When walking along a road, walk only on the shoulder (off of the asphalt), as far as practicable from the edge of the asphalt roadway. Where a sidewalk or a road shoulder is not available, walk on the outside edge of the roadway; and walk only on the far left side of the roadway facing oncoming traffic. The best place to walk is on Promontory’s 30 miles of trails.
You may see more of the Sheriff’s department on property in the future. This is a result of some concerned neighbors that went to the Sheriff to ask for more support in managing speed violators in and around Promontory.
The Sheriff appears to have stepped up traffic and speed enforcement, particularly on Promontory Ranch Road and other more heavily travelled roads.
Be sure to follow all traffic signs and drive safely.
Motorized Vehicles At Promontory
Any and all vehicles driven on Promontory roadways (with the sole exception of Conservancy, Club Trail, and Golf Maintenance Equipment) must be properly registered and licensed with the State of Utah. All vehicles driven on Promontory Roadways must be driven by a licensed driver. Although they are gated, Promontory’s streets are made subject to the traffic laws of the State of Utah by these rules. Traffic laws may be enforced by the Summit County Sheriff’s Department and violations are also subject to penalties imposed by the Conservancy.
ATV’s, four-wheelers, and the like SHALL NEVER be driven on Promontory’s open space, trails and/or golf courses.
Dog Leash Policy
Please remember that all dogs are required to be on a leash, unless on the designated OFF-Leash Trail or at The Dog Park.

Wildlife & Rodenticides
Rodenticides, the poisons sometimes used to kill rodents, have an impact beyond the location where they were initially used. Birds of prey, such as owls and hawks, may be harmed or killed by consuming poisoned rodents, even at non-lethal doses. Additionally, hawks and owls may feed poisoned rodents to their young.
We ask that you please use snap traps to control rodent infestations without negatively impacting non-target wildlife.
Some years ago Summit County created a system to provide phone, email, and text messages regarding emergencies. The system was upgraded such that anyone who previously signed up will need to sign up again.
The alert center also provides information about non-emergency matters in and about Summit County.
