Conservancy News & Events
The Conservancy offers a reminder that exterior lighting at individual homesites is permitted only under limited circumstances. Exterior lighting can have a disorienting effect on migratory birds.
All exterior lighting must conform with the following Design Guideline provisions, as directed by Summit County:
- (i) such light must be of a low-level, subdued intensity;

- (iii) lighting must be directed downward; and
- (iv) all lighting must be pre-approved by the Architectural Review Committee. Please see Section 3.13 of the Design Guidelines.
The Conservancy’s Board of Directors has instructed staff to monitor the community for lighting. Some Conservancy members will be notified of violations. Accordingly, please be aware of how your exterior lights are presently displayed and adjust as necessary.

Please Don't Feed The Wild Animals
At Promontory we follow the guidelines given by Wild Aware Utah. Their website is excellent and loaded with great information on living with the wildlife in Utah. Please visit the website for tips and more information about living with the wild animals!
Drive Slow. Protect Our Wildlife.
One of the best things about living in Promontory is sharing our space with incredible wildlife – rabbits, porcupines, squirrels, and especially this time of year, deer and elk. While we love seeing them in our yards and open space, seeing them on our roads is a different story. Each animal reacts differently to approaching cars and it’s best to let the animal clear the road first before passing. PLEASE, for your safety and the preservation of our animals, use caution and SLOW DOWN.
Keep Promontory Safe & Family-Friendly
Reminder that, pursuant to the CCR’s and the Conservancy’s Policy Regarding Pets, owner’s pets are not permitted to roam free on Promontory grounds at any time. Accordingly, please keep all animals on leashes when exploring trails and properly contained when at home. For those that neglect to do so, the Conservancy Board will be forced to take enforcement action pursuant to its policies, as the safety of all Promontory residents is always our top priority. Any interaction between the native wildlife (elk and the like) and pets who are running unattended could be very dangerous.
Help Us Save Our Trees!
The conifer and deciduous trees that line our streets and surround our homes are primarily Aspen trees. They are having a difficult time due to several types of fungus and disease that has been spreading quickly throughout the development. In the past few years controlling the situation has been
proven difficult primarily due to the way the fungus spreads. Severe outbreaks can effect the overall health of the tree and eventually cause death. In order for us to get total control of the situation, we have to spray as many of our trees as possible, including those around the homes.
Spring Clean Up In The Cabin Neighborhoods
Cabin Owners, we have started the Spring cleanup in all five cabin neighborhoods. You will see the crew from Mounteer, trimming your trees, cleaning up debris and getting your irrigation started.
May is also the time that we are spraying the spruces and aspens for insect and disease. Our arborist and his crew are working hard to bring our trees to a very healthy state.
If you have any questions concerning your cabin yard maintenance please contact Joe Ellis.
Help Us Keep Our Gates Secure and Roads Safe
In response to the numerous requests we have received from owners, please be aware that effective immediately, we will be more diligent in enforcing our guest entrance policies. As always, we need to monitor who is admitted to our private community. Homeowners are asked to place the names of their anticipated guests in the Conservancy’sGatehouse Management system via Dwelling Live, or call the Gate with the name of your visitor at 435-333-4035.
Our Guards will make every effort to contact the owners, however, any guest whose name does not appear on the guard list or the guards cannot verify with the homeowner, the guest may be turned away.
The Conservancy will also be monitoring all traffic and will be enforcing the Conservancy Rules of the road – Please slow down, and please don’t pass!
Thanks for helping us keep everyone at Promontory safe!
