St. George - WILSON ELECTRONICS and Verizon Wireless have agreed upon new technical specifications for consumer cellular boosters, which the two companies have filed jointly in response to the FCC’s signal booster NPRM. Boosters meeting new stricter design standards can ensure that private users as well as government agencies can continue to have reliable service in areas where signal coverage may not be optimal due to terrain.

Fredonia - FREDONIA was chosen to receive a $15,000 grant from KaBOOM! and its partners, Dr Pepper and Snapple, for new playground equipment at the city park. A video created by the town office and featuring several of the town’s children launched the application process for the grant. As a condition of the grant, the town must raise an additional $9,000 for the equipment, as well as funding for the ground surface beneath the set.

Promontory Builds New Family Clubhouse

Park City - Family-friendly, luxury real estate development PROMONTORY celebrated its 10th anniversary with the announcement of its latest creative amenity, a 15,000-square-foot family activity center dubbed “The Shed.”

The Shed will be located at the western edge of Promontory’s Ranch Club Compound, the hub of community activity. It will offer yet another dimension to the 7,500-acre award-winning private community, acting as the Promontory Club’s unofficial headquarters for casual fare and fun, including:

  • Relaxed family dining with a soda fountain
  • Billiards and game arcade
  • Outdoor amphitheatre with 500 seats
  • View deck with panoramic views of Deer Valley and Park City ski areas
  • Private dining
  • A 50-seat movie theater
  • Two lanes of bowling
  • Gymnasium for indoor sports
  • Arts and crafts studio

Francis Najafi, CEO of PIVOTAL GROUP, developer of Promontory, says, “From the beginning, Promontory was designed to offer an array of amenities unrivalled by any other recreational community in the nation. We look forward to completing The Shed in time for a grand opening next summer. The Shed will complete our Ranch Club Compound and add dramatic new energy and variety for our members and buyers who seek a well-rounded club lifestyle.”

“Since its inception, we have worked hard to make Promontory a complement to the natural amenities of the Park City area and Utah’s Rocky Mountains,” says Rich Sonntag, Promontory’s managing director. “We pride ourselves on being careful stewards of our 10-square-mile community as a private park and conservancy, and we stand for excellence in design in our amenities and in the homes built here.”
