The city is hosting a virtual “Coffee with Council” event over Facebook Live to take questions from the community about the COVID-19 outbreak and other issues. The city council’s outreach events, such as Coffee with Council and Apres with Council, started in 2016 as a monthly, informal way to engage the community.

Park City leaders say their residents want the city to take bold action to address traffic congestion. That directive comes from the city’s Vision 2020 project, where more than 1,000 community members participated in surveys and focus groups to discuss the city’s future. So, the city council is revisiting a park-and-ride lot planned for the Quinn’s Junction area, near the interchange of U.S. 40 and S.R. 248. The lot would have 400 to 500 spaces intended to catch commuters coming in from Wasatch County and eastern Summit County.

At Tuesday’s State of Park City address, Park City Mayor Andy Beerman encouraged residents to support a zero-waste goal for the city. That’s something the city council will consider Thursday — what zero waste for Park City could look like. The city estimates 45% of in-town waste comes from residents.  Park City Manager Matt Dias says the city could have a huge impact and other communities in the United States divert almost 80% of waste from landfills.
