The long-awaited Park City Arts and Culture District was the topic of Wednesday’s roundtable discussion with city government.

 

Park City purchased the five-acre parcel of land at the corner of Kearns Boulevard and Bonanza Drive back in 2017 and officials say despite complications due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, plans are on schedule.

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 City selected Robb Woulfe to oversee aspects of the Arts and Culture District’s development, alongside the Kimball Art Center and Sundance Institute, the City’s partners on the project. Woulfe’s responsibilities include program design, governance, operations and more.

Park City Mayor Andy Beerman says Woulfe’s expertise in arts and culture will benefit Park City’s residents and visitors.

After spending $25 million to purchase Bonanza Flat, you'd think that Park City would be out of money to buy more property.
