Unfortunately, Summit County might not continue to fund the community wood chipping program. We have been asked by Mike Jones to send emails in support of the program to hopefully change their minds. Please also thank them for the work they did at Beaver Springs this year.
Also, encourage them to purchase a larger wood chipper, like the one used this year. It was borrowed from DNR, and made the process much more efficient. Hopefully the County Commission will listen to community members who write in.
If possible please send an email to JJ Wallace at firstname.lastname@example.org, he is the assistant Fire Marshal for Summit County.
The Upper Weber Canyon Property Owners Association (UWCPOA) has secured a site from the county next to our canyon’s trash transfer station and Josh Hollingshead (with UWCPOA) is working with excavation and concrete companies to secure a bid. He is in need of help to start identifying people who work in trades (electrician, framing, heavy machinery, etc) who could volunteer some work or materials as the budget is very tight. Anyone who could help in that regard is invited to contact Debbi Fugal (email@example.com; 435-640-0376).
Wondering what the weather is like at BSR? There are two online weather stations with webcams you can check out:
Within the BSR neighborhood: http://www.kevinkemp.com/weather/bsr/
Next door in the Aspen Acres neighborhood: http://www.weberweather.com/
More helpful links like these can be found in our Contacts page.
The chipper came to BSR as planned on July 10th, but their preliminary scouting of the work showed them we had much more to be chipped than they could do in one day. The county has scheduled the chipper to return to BSR on July 22.
The chipper is scheduled to come to BSR on July 10.

As discussed at the recent Beaver Springs Ranch Association Annual Meeting, the Oakley Post Office has made significant changes to their rural parcel delivery procedures. This has negatively impacted some residents. As a result of these changes the Upper Weber Canyon Property Owners Association, and the Pine Mountain Board are pursuing obtaining approval for rural delivery of United States Postal Service (USPS) mail and a delivery location for an Amazon drop box for the permanent residents of Upper Weber Canyon.
Utilizing rural mail delivery from the USPS would require a change of address from your current mail delivery location Oakley 84055, or other location, to a new Kamas 84036 location.
The Postal Survey will provide data from Beaver Springs Ranch regarding our interest in having USPS mail delivery to Upper Weber Canyon. We are providing the survey to all Beaver Springs Ranch residents for several reasons:
- If you are a part time resident but plan to become a full-time resident please complete the survey and make a note of your plans and when you think this will occur, approximately.
- If you are not a full-time resident, but you may want to receive packages while staying at Beaver Springs and utilize the facilities (other than USPS), please complete the survey making the appropriate notations.
- If you are a full-time resident and you receive mail delivery elsewhere, other than the Oakley Post Office. Please complete the survey and indicate if you would like to utilize the USPS facilities in Upper Weber Canyon.
Please complete our Postal Survey and return it to Debbi Fugal by Friday, June 21, 2019. You can send the information by email to firstname.lastname@example.org; text a picture of your completed survey to her at 435-640-0376, or send it hard copy to:
PO Box 399
Oakley, UT 84055
If you have a service company that travels in or through Beaver Springs Ranch to service your property, please make sure they are aware we have changed the lock at the BSR Gate. We’re getting a number of calls from propane companies who have gone up to deliver propane to a customer and no longer have a way to get through the gate.
We are not always able to take calls immediately and it causes a lot of unnecessary delays for services when they discover the lock has changed upon arrival at the gate.
Please plan ahead! Ask your service agency if they have their own access through the gate when you contact them for service. If they do not, they should contact us at least a couple days (1-2 weeks, preferably) before they need to get in to BSR.
Unfortunately, we do not have records of all the services who had metal keys and have not been able to notify them all on our own. The following services have already been notified and have their own access:
- Summit County Sheriff
- South Summit Fire Protection
- Summit County (building inspections, etc.)
- Rocky Mountain Power
- All West Communications
- Suburban Propane
- T-7 Propane
- Utah LP Gas
- Home Propane
- Preventive Pest Control
When you talk to your service company, please ask that they remind their drivers to follow our posted 10 MPH speed limit. We’ve had several over the years who have far exceeded the speed limit. For the safety of our neighborhood, problem companies may be denied access in the future.
Guidance for requesting temporary PINs for companies and contractors needing non-recurring, non-long term access to BSR is forthcoming.
Update 6/1/2019: Guidance for temporary PINs can now be found in our Gate FAQs.
A crew will be on the mountain Saturday, June 1st, 2019, to wash windows. Anyone interested should call 435-783-7141.
Window washing services will be available on Saturday, September 15th. If interested, please contact Ed at 435-783-7141.
