E-Bike Safety and Use on Pinebrook TrailsPosted: June 5, 2019
As many of you are aware, electric assisted bikes (E-bikes) are becoming quite popular in our community. Pinebrook’s private trail system is a multi-use system intended to provide enjoyment for hikers, runners and bikers. However, safety concerns have been raised regarding the use of E-bikes on the trails, primarily because of the weight of E-bikes and the speed in which they can travel both uphill and downhill. Park City and Mountain Trails Foundation enthusiastically support the use of E-bikes on paved, multi-use pathways but do not allow them on single-track trails. The Pinebrook HOA endorses their position. Please do not ride E-bikes on the single-track trails in Pinebrook, both for the safety of the rider and that of the other trail users. Thank you.

2019 SPRING CLEANUP and WOOD CHIPPING SERVICEPosted: April 26, 2019
Dumpsters and wood chipper will be provided by the Pinebrook Master Association and Pinebrook Homeowners Association again this year from Saturday, May 25th to Sunday, June 2nd. They will be in the usual location in the parking lot of the Pinebrook Park. In the past few years, use of the dumpsters has increasingly been abused by non-residents, landscape companies, after-hour dumping in the parking lot (not in the dumpsters), and dumping of toxic and hazardous materials. Crews may implement additional screening and security measures this year to help control and manage the cleanup efforts. Continued abuse could ultimately lead to discontinuation of this highly valued service. Please:
1.) Do not invite your friends in neighboring communities to use Pinebrook’s dumpsters.
2.) All disposed materials must be placed in the dumpsters and wood stacked in marked locations for chipping. Do not dump truckloads of debris in the parking lot for the crews to pick up and dispose of in the dumpsters.
3.) If you hire a landscape company to help with spring cleanup, please make sure they are only acting on your behalf. They are not allowed to dispose of waste and debris from other customers in other neighborhoods.
4.) Do not dump anything toxic or hazardous! NO paint, paint rags, tires, propane tanks, chemicals, needles and medical waste, batteries, etc. Save those for Summit County’s Hazard Material Collection event on April 27th instead.
5.) If you are unable to haul your trees or branches to the park to be chipped, you will need to contact a private chipping service or the Park City Fire District to sign up for their free mobile chipping service. Their schedule will fill quickly, so don’t delay. THE PHOA DOES NOT PROVIDE MOBILE CHIPPING SERVICES.
Invasive Weed MitigationPosted: April 7, 2019
The Summit County Cooperative Weed Management Area (Summit County CWM) in cooperation with the Summit County and Salt Lake Weed Control Departments, Park City, and Snyderville Basin Special Recreation District, have been awarded a competitive grant from the Utah State Department of Agriculture and Food (UDAF) to map and treat two state listed noxious weeds, garlic mustard and spotted knapweed.
Please help us contain the spread of these high priority invasive plants by participating in this county wide management effort. Read more here.
Pinebrook/Jeremy Ranch Roundabouts Coming this SummerPosted: March 7, 2019
Summit County, in coordination with UDOT, will build two new roundabouts at the I-80/Jeremy Ranch-Pinebrook interchange. The county webpage for the project can be found here. This project will optimize mobility and enhance safety for residents and commuters. Multiple studies found roundabouts to be the most effective long-term solution to address growth and traffic congestion at this interchange. Improvements include:
- Two roundabouts
- Separated trails
- Improved transit connectivity
- Pedestrian accommodations
Obviously, this project will have major impacts on Pinebrook residents. Important dates and facts:
- The anticipated start date is early May, weather permitting, and the county hopes to finish all major infrastructure by October-November 2019. Final landscaping and cleanup will most likely be completed in late 2019 or 2020.
- The park-and-ride lot on Rasmussen road will be closed during construction, with the bus pickup being moved to the Ecker Hill Middle School parking lot.
- The contract allows for night-time work for low-impact type of construction, such as paving, curb and gutter, etc. Jack-hammering, blasting or other loud activities will not be permitted.
- Summit County will disseminate information via Nextdoor.com, their website, and email. You can sign up for email alerts regarding road construction here. Information regarding detours and construction schedules will be provided with as much advanced notice as possible so commuters will have time to plan their travel schedule.
Please respect that the Pinebrook HOA has no influence in this matter. Summit County has pledged to pass along timely information to the affected communities as quickly as possible. Questions and concerns should be directed to the County via their contact information above. Please do not contact your Homeowners Association with concerns/complaints. The County and UDOT own the construction project, construction timeline, and any related problems the project may cause.

Dig Out Your Fire HydrantsPosted: February 7, 2019
It doesn’t take long for fire hydrants to get buried once it starts snowing for real in Park City. Please make the effort (or recruit a few neighborhood high school students) to dig out the fire hydrants near your home if they’ve been buried. There are dozens of hydrants in Pinebrook, and even though Gorgoza Mutual Water Company’s staff tries to keep as many cleared as possible, there’s simply too many hydrants and not enough staff to get to them all. Your cooperation and efforts are greatly appreciated!
