It’s Up To You
This view, this heritage, its fate awaits your answer.
Protection of these pastures is a critical first step for any additional preservation.
The question is simple: should the Armstrong Snow Ranch Pastures be protected? Prior to entering into a Purchase Agreement on the property, Utah Open Lands is asking you to weigh in. The 19-acre property is within the city limits of Park City and is zoned for 3 lots per acre. It is one of the last unprotected agricultural heritage landscapes within Park City limits and its protection is truly up to you. We need your voice – fill out our survey HERE.
Above Right: This is not an approved development plan, but a representation of existing zoning.
If the community wants this land protected, Utah Open Lands will finalize negotiations, work with the family to seek a partial contribution of the conservation easement value, and begin a funding campaign to ensure these heritage pastures are permanently protected.

Utah Open Lands and Wasatch County residents are launching a private initiative to insure the forever protection of the Historic North Fields through a three-fold approach.
- Working with willing landowners interested in exercising their private property right to preserve their land, Utah Open Lands will purchase conservation easements and leverage donations.
- Landowners interested in donating a conservation easement to ensure it passes on to the next generation.
- Working with the real estate community Utah Open Lands will aid potential conservation buyers interested in the preservation goals of the North Fields. Conservation Easements guarantee for property owners and the community a legacy from the past forever for the future.
Your tax deductible contributions can be made to Utah Open Lands which will be used exclusively for this preservation effort. Click here to read more.
On March 3rd, Utah Open Lands and members of the Park City Open Space Advisory Committee (COSAC) met with the Park City City Council to discuss recommendations for the protection of the 340 acre Clark Ranch property. After Utah Open Lands’ Spring and Summer investigations of the conservation resources on the property, the COSAC committee made recommendations to ensure that the scenic entry corridor value this land be protected. The next step is to craft a conservation easement as directed by the Park City Council. Park City is to be commended for their commitment to permanent open space preservation and vision which ensures the mountain resort character and protects the high quality of life which attract national and international visitors and bolsters Utah’s overall economy.
