Among several items, today’s agenda for the Park City Council includes good news for the Children’s Justice Center—and for those who want to multi-task while they’re at City Park.

In the council’s agenda at about 5:00 pm, they will discuss contributing some $75,000 to the County Children’s Justice Center. Earlier, it seemed doubtful that the city would be able to make a contribution. Assistant City Manager Matt Dias explained what they can and cannot do.

After a 30-day comment period and one public hearing, Park City community members had one last opportunity to express their feelings on the SR 248 corridor project at the Park City Council meeting Thursday. 

“It’s going to decrease property values throughout Prospector."

"Squeezing the balloon—you know what happens when the balloon gets full? Pop!"

"I think it’s important that the Council comes out and says that the plan proposed by UDOT is not acceptable.”

Park City Manager Diane Foster recently met with Summit County Manager Tom Fisher and Hideout Town Manager Jan McCosh to discuss each party’s interest in including unincorporated areas of Summit County in the municipalities’ annexation policy plans. Hideout’s plan would nearly triple the size of the town, with boundaries extending to Jordanelle Reservoir and encompassing the Quinn’s Junction area. Annexation policy plans outline possibilities for long-term expansion to accommodate growth—they don’t detail actions that will occur.

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.

The Park City Council approved a request for funding Thursday by Utah Open Lands to help meet its deadline for the conservation of Armstrong Snow Ranch Pastures. 

The council meeting was standing-room only, as community members wearing red, in honor of Kerry Armstrong’s granting of the Red Barn parcel, filled Council Chambers.

Park City Council voted to donate more than a half million dollars to the purchase of the 19-acre Snow Ranch Pasture, land conservation deal. The City donated $3 million last year after the Treasure Hill and Snow Ranch Pastures open space bond succeeded at the poles. On Friday, Utah Open Lands received an anonymous donation of $200,000. They have until the end of June to raise another $100,000.

Park City Municipal and the Park City Community Foundation are forging ahead with their social equity efforts.

The Woodside Park Phase I housing project is nearly finished. On Thursday, the Park City Council will consider the pricing for the units, as well as the process for getting applicants into the homes. 

Ed Parigian

After applying for a midterm opening on the Park City Council over a year and a half ago, 13-year-Park City resident Ed Parigian says he’s ready to throw his hat in the ring again, alongside six other candidates. 

Parigian lives on Norfolk Avenue. He moved to Park City after leaving a career with Nike to check some items off his bucket list, including living as a ski bum. Parigian is semi-retired, and he serves on the City’s Recreation Advisory Board. He says he’s running for City Council to help strengthen the community aspect of Park City.

Chadwick Fairbanks

The race for three open seats on the Park City Council has been set in motion, with seven candidates headed to a primary election in August. One of them is Chadwick Fairbanks III, a former congressional candidate. 

Daniel Lewis

Seven candidates are vying for three open seats on the Park City Council. Political newcomer Daniel Lewis is one of them. 

Lewis started working in Park City for his first job two decades ago when he was 16, and he moved from Kamas into Park City a couple years after. Lewis has held—and still does—many different gigs throughout town, most recently with Mountain Town Music, Park City Film and Park City Ghost Tours. Lewis says he wants to represent working-class Parkites in the Council chambers.
