After a decision made by Park City’s Board of Adjustment, the timeframe for constructing the city’s upcoming Woodside Park Phase II affordable housing project has been delayed. 

The Park City Board of Adjustment decided in June to remand the Woodside Park Phase II master planned development application back to the Park City Planning Commission based on one aspect of the project—a reduction in setbacks the board felt wasn’t justified.

Christian Center of Park City

After information spread through the media a couple weeks ago about possible Immigration and Customs Enforcement operations targeting 2,000 immigrants in 10 different cities, Christian Center of Park City Program Manager Pete Stoughton noticed something strange with the center’s food pantry operations.

 

“On a daily basis, we usually see 30 to 60 families a day in our pantry—roughly about 1,200 a month," Stoughton said. "That number sharply decreased just last week.”

Stoughton noted the same thing with a program the center hosts with EATS Park City.

Park City Municipal and its partners on the forthcoming arts and culture district, the Sundance Institute and Kimball Art Center, still have a way to go before the district opens to the community and visitors. The city recently hired someone to help lead the way.

The Park City Council voted to approve a joint resolution with the Summit County Council expressing their official stance on the SR 248 project to the Utah Department of Transportation.

Historic Park City Alliance President John Kenworthy invited Summit County Communities that Care Coordinator Mary Christa Smith to a recent HPCA meeting to talk about the importance of, well, talking—about mental health among Main Street employees. 

Flanagan’s owner John Kenworthy says until recently, the only way to address mental health issues in Summit County was by checking yourself into the jail. Now, the area has many support services, and Kenworthy says it’s time the community gets comfortable having a conversation about mental health.

Town of Hideout

The Town of Hideout, which borders the Jordanelle Reservoir in Wasatch County, is in the process of creating an annexation policy plan, to guide its growth for the next 20 years. 

Much like a municipality’s general plan, an annexation policy plan provides direction for a city or town’s long-term vision and is required by state statute. The plan anticipates growth and land-use needs, but it doesn’t mean a municipality will take action and annex the land at any point. Multiple municipalities can share the same areas within their annexation expansion areas.

A new Spider-Man film is out, and though there have been a handful of films featuring the web-slinging superhero--even played by a few different actors--you don't need to have seen every one of them to understand the latest iteration. You may, however, have to have watched a dozen other Marvel films to know what's going on. Casual superhero movie watcher Wendy Gourley and Marvel Cinematic Universe enthusiast Emily Means discuss Spider-Man: Far From Home.
