The Park City Mountain Resort base area development is on the agenda once again with planners considering their request to approve the project under the 22-year old master plan development agreement.  The public and Park City planners toured the area Wednesday afternoon.


The development was granted approval in 1998. Twenty-two years down the road, present owner Vail Resorts is disentangling from the development by planning to sell the 10 acres of parking lot to PEG Companies, a real estate developer in Provo.

Plans to limit full home, short-term rentals in Heber’s downtown area were scrapped by its city council on Tuesday.


Heber City Council has been discussing possible ordinances surrounding nightly rentals like Airbnb and VRBO in the city for about a year. The council last night agreed that owner occupied rentals should be allowed in all parts of the city, however.

The Heber City Council rejected the planned North Village Resort’s request to annex into the city at a meeting on Tuesday evening.


The North Village Crossing Annexation is almost 140 acres located at the southeast and southwest corners of River Road and US 40. The developers signed a 25-year development agreement with Wasatch County in 2013, the plan will result in several hundred nightly rental units, and nearly half a million square feet of retail, including a gas station and a water park.

The Black Lives Matter mural on Park City’s Main Street was vandalized Tuesday night, just days after it was completed.


The word “black” was painted over with grey paint. So was the image of a fist that makes up the letter “i” in the word “lives”. The result is that the phrase “Black Lives Matter” becomes “Lives Matter.”
