After a Black Lives Matter mural on Main Street was vandalized, Park City officials held a discussion about race as part of their Friday Roundtable.

 

Park City’s Main Street was adorned with four murals commissioned by Park City Municipal and Summit County Arts Council over the Fourth of July weekend, including one with the words “Black Lives Matter.” By Wednesday morning, it had been vandalized. 

 

Friday morning the city held an online conversation with the artists to discuss the murals.

On Thursday evening, Park City’s City Council voted to approve the proposed Huntsman Estate subdivision in Deer Valley. The 15-lot parcel is located off Royal Street near the Stein Eriksen Residences.

In his latest visit with KPCW, County Health Director Rich Bullough talked about the effectiveness of face masks; the prospects for schools reopening; and other topics.  

Bullough said he doesn’t have much to say about the backlash against the Mask Order, or critics who think he’s on an authority trip.

He said the actions they’ve taken are no different than what’s been done at many other locations around the globe.

Park City Council was briefed on the progress of the proposed arts and culture district at Thursday’s council meeting. 

 

Although the project has been complicated due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the plan to begin demolition on the five-acre parcel of land at the corner of Kearns Boulevard and Bonanza Drive this November is still on schedule – for now. 

 

Deputy City Manager David Everitt says the onset of the pandemic did make the city reevaluate their plans, though.
