Park City

Once again, it’s the time of year when locals are asked to donate their slightly-used clothing for the Winter Coat Drive, so that youths of all income levels can enjoy winter sports.

The coat drive is part of the Park City Christian Center Operation Hope. Pete Stoughten, from the Center, and Heather Sims, from the Youth Sports Alliance, visited KPCW to explain the purpose of the program, and to mention their other partners in the effort.

Staff is asking the Planning Commission for the green light on their recommendations regarding food trucks at Wednesday’s meeting -before they present them to city council during their work session on Thursday. Melissa Allison has more:

Park City Rotary

Organizers are getting set to have over a thousand locals, lining up and down Main Street this Saturday, for the 3rd Annual Park City Shot Ski.

The event invites participants to line Main Street, holding hundreds of skis laid end to end, and take back a shot. It is both a friendly competition with Breckenridge, Colorado, which set a record last January for the number of participants, and a fundraiser for the Sunrise Rotary Club.

KPCW talked to organizers Jim Whitman and Connie Nelson. Whitman said the idea was spawned by one of the annual Park City Road Tours.

The historic Kimball Garage has had about 18 months of analysis regarding the noise and traffic impacts the proposed special event use could have on the surrounding community. The item is back before the Park City Planning Commission at Wednesday’s meeting. Melissa Allison has more:

Sam Sylvitis has been teaching and coaching in the health field for years and she said the art and science of Aryveda is ancient and can be traced back to 5000 years of practice.

Park City Newcomers is providing an opportunity for members of the community to learn about local nonprofits this Wednesday.

Carol Levine with the Park City Newcomers Club explains why the non-profit fair is returning.

“The newcomers did this fair three years ago, so we felt that it was time to do another one. It’s a very interesting process because Park City has so many non-profits that it’s difficult to choose. We tried to get newer ones that have not been out there but then we also took the old Christian Center, Peace House and all that.”

A weekend power outage affected 1,600 people in Park City this past weekend. While many were concerned about homes and businesses the outage also affected local parking.

This weekend as power went out the arms on the China Bridge garage went up. Johnny Wasden with Park City Parking explains why.

“They’re designed to basically go up so that no one gets trapped in there. Not requiring payment or anything like that just because it’s no one’s fault. We just want to be able to get people out of there in the event of a power failure.”
