Park City Talks Holiday Parking With The Historic Park City Alliance
The holiday is closing in fast and the Historic Park City Alliance met with city staff to get the lowdown about their plans for parking. KPCW’s Melissa Allison has more:
Park City Special Events Manager Jenny Diersen told the board they’re doing the same thing this year that they did last year for Halloween when it comes to parking and transit - right down to charging $10 an hour for parking at China Bridge.
“That rate is from 2 o’clock to 6 o’clock,” Diersen said. “We’re doing the spooky transit center and all of the fun stuff we did. Frankenbus and all of that as well during Halloween so we’ll be sending stuff out through Lisa in the Merchant Association and for this event we’ll be doing door-to-door outreach for the merchants, not the residential zones. But for merchants we’re doing door-to-door for Halloween cause it’s a bigger one and we want to make sure everyone knows the drill.”
Diersen told the board they also received requests for parking for the Electric Light Parade which she said is in the works.
As for the Sundance Film Festival – Diersen said they’re going to charge a flat rate of $40 per day in China Bridge but that’s only for the first four days.
“So again, that’s Thursday through Monday,” Diersen said. “And then the second half of the festival the proposed rate is $5 an hour. We are still discussing internally when that rate would start, and I do think we’ll probably have that in the next couple of weeks here but probably sometime in the mid to late morning is when we’d start charging for parking the second half of the festival.”
