Wednesday’s planning commission meeting on PCMR base postponed until December 15th

PEG Companies/HKS
Wednesday's meeting will now take place on December 15th.

The developer of the proposed project at the base of Park City Mountain Resort requested to reschedule Wednesday’s planning commission meeting to December.

In an email shared with KPCW Wednesday morning, representatives for PEG Companies and Vail Resorts asked to move the work session on the proposed base development project at Park City Mountain Resort, mere hours before the meeting was scheduled to start.

According to a staff report, PEG originally asked for Wednesday’s meeting in order to address the transportation and parking plans for its proposal, which would move the current surface parking underground and build hotels, condos, and retail space on top.

In the email, PEG’s Robert Schmidt and Vail’s Kara Bowyer wrote to Park City Planning Director Gretchen Milliken and Senior Planner Alexandra Ananth, expressing disappointment that the findings of a transportation study by consulting firm AECOM were not available before the meeting. Ananth told KPCW this week the city anticipates seeing the results of the study prior to Thanksgiving. Schmidt and Bowyer added:

“We look forward to returning to your December 15th meeting for staff to present the findings of the AECOM study and to discuss the status of the ongoing negotiations between staff, the applicant, and the resort.”

According to the email, city staff is expected to meet with PEG and Vail on December 3rd to discuss the transit study.

Editor's note: After publication, Vail Resorts told KPCW the continuation was agreed to after a request from the city planning department. The planning department says PEG and Vail requested the change.
