Park City Council To Approve New Budget, Explore Temporary Uses for Arts and Culture Site

Park City Municipal

The Park City Council will be addressing a number of issues at this afternoon’s meeting, including finalizing next fiscal year’s budget and the return of the Main Street Trolley.


Thursday’s meeting is scheduled to start at 4:30 at city hall and will also be available virtually on Zoom and Facebook Live.  


The meeting will begin with an hour-long council study session on temporary programming for the site of the proposed arts and culture district at the corner of Kearns Boulevard and Bonanza Drive.


City Manager Matt Dias told KPCW the session is not intended to be for any formal decisions on the future of the space. He said it will be a brainstorming session to explore whether the city should look into using the space for recreation or events over the next few months as the council continues to debate the future of the district.   


“We’re not necessarily seeking formal direction or a vote up or down,” Dias said. “What we’re taking the opportunity of the hour to sort of step back, have a facilitated discussion about some of the temporary activation for some of the land within the arts and culture district this summer, fall, and maybe even winter.”


Other items on the agenda include formally adopting their transit separation agreement with Summit County ahead of the launch of the county-run High Valley Transit District, formally adopting the FY22 budget, and exploring service route options for the return of Park City’s iconic Main Street Trolley.


Also on the agenda is establishing compensation for the city's elected and statutory officers. Dias said the council is not giving itself a raise and the ordinance is required annually as part of the budget process, per state law. 


“It’s required by statute in the state of Utah that there is a standalone formal resolution to adopt the amount each year,” he said. “The amount this year is the exact same as the previous year.”
