The Park City Planning Commission and City Council both reviewed ways to encourage more affordable housing construction in Park City at their respective meetings this week. Those incentives range from reducing building requirements for developers to a future demolition tax for old buildings that get torn down.

 

The people of Park City have heard a lot about Vision 2020 -- it’s the city’s new 10-year plan for the community that’s being used as a guide for city government’s future decision making.
