When the Park City Council recently discussed the City’s selection process for affordable housing applicants, Mayor Andy Beerman commented that public support for the City’s housing efforts hinged on choosing a process that gives extra consideration to people based on their careers and how long they’ve worked in the area.

Park City Attorney Mark Harrington made a special announcement at Thursday’s City Council meeting.

“So, as of yesterday, March 20, the city is proud owner of a little parcel in Old Town called Treasure Hill.”

Voters approved the $48 million Treasure Hill and Armstrong/Snow Ranch Pasture open space bond in November 2018, with $45 million of that designated for the purchase of Treasure Hill. Harrington says Budget Manager Nate Rockwood and the Park City Budget Department secured the bond financing on February 20, at a 2.43% interest rate.

The two-and-a-half-hour discussion around housing policy at last week’s Park City Council retreat featured in-depth conversations about rental units and exploring building housing outside of city boundaries. But questions remain about what the role of major employers in the city is when it comes to housing their workforce.

Councilmember Lynn Ware Peek brought up the obligation of the resorts in providing housing for their employees, and at the time, Mayor Andy Beerman said it wasn’t the right forum for a larger discussion on the issue.

Park City is holding its first stand-alone State of the City address this evening, featuring remarks from the mayor, a Q&A session with the City Council—and pie and ice cream. 

It might seem a little stuffy to have a formal event to communicate policy to the public, but Park City Mayor Andy Beerman views tonight’s State of the City forum as a way for the public and city government to socialize and talk openly about issues that are important to the community.
