Eagle Mtn: Pioneer Addition Community Center?

Quality Management Services, the company that manages the Pioneer Addition HOA is looking for feedback about building a community center in the Pioneer Addition area.

If you live in the Pioneer Addition HOA, send you comments to

It is the opinion of All Things Eagle Mountain that now isn't the right time to build such a facility. ATEM feels that $20 a month is a reasonable amount to charge for monthly HOA dues and building such a facility would mean an increase in monthly HOA dues. During these economic times when people are struggling to pay mortgages and foreclosures and short sales surround us, now is not a responsible time to burden a community with such a project.


Eagle Mtn: Pioneer HOA Changes When HOA Fees Due

I received a letter from Quality Management Services, the company that manages the Pioneer Addition HOA.

Instead of paying your HOA dues monthly, they would now like residents to pay quarterly or all up front.

So here's the breakdown. Instead of paying $20 a month, you will now pay $60 every three months.

If you would like to save money, you can pay a full year up front and recieve a 10% discount. That would make your dues $216 for a full year.

If you have any questions, QMS would like you to email them at (This blog is not affiliated with QMS).

Eagle Mtn: $5000 a Month Payments to Lobbyist to Continue

"There's at least one negative conclusion about Eagle Mountain's recent decision to continue payments of $5,000 a month to a lobbyist, mostly to boost the idea of a 2100 North/Cedar Valley Freeway:

The city council has fallen prey to the hype that the only way to get something done in Washington is to hire an inside wheeler-dealer.

This could well turn out to be a big waste of money, given the mounting pressure in Congress to cut government spending. The freeway is a worthy project, but it can wait. Besides, Utah County's delegate to the House of Representatives, Jason Chaffetz, doesn't like earmarks.

Surely there is some more certain benefit that could be derived for residents right now." -Daily Herald

Eagle Mtn: City Approves Business Incubator

"Elected officials here approved this week what is believed to be the state's first zero-cost city business incubator.

Applicants to the program need not be based in Eagle Mountain, and will be judged on:

• Innovative business models

• Leadership/management proficiency

• Potential for job creation

• Market growth capability

• Well-defined products and services

• Ability to secure appropriate financing

• Being receptive to sharing ideas and learning new skills

Businesses will be expected to graduate from the incubator within two to five years, and commit to relocate to Eagle Mountain afterward. The application will be on the city's website early this week, posted in the economic development section, said Linda Petereson, city spokeswoman.

For its part, the city will provide up to 5,120 square feet of office space. The city got the office space for free by trading another parcel, which was gifted to the city by another entity, with Direct Communications.

"They will be given basic phone and internet services at no cost, upgraded services at an exclusive nominal rate, as well as access to critical multimedia tools, information, contacts and services which may otherwise be inaccessible or unaffordable to start-up entrepreneurs," said Pili. "They will also have access to shared resources, such as a reception area and conference room, copy and fax equipment, audio visual equipment and a break room. The facility will be divided into private offices, cubicles and light assembly/manufacturing areas."" -Daily Herald
