The Summit County Council will resume discussion and public input in the near future on a proposed Neighborhood Mixed Use Zone.

But during their first meeting on the new zone, on May 6th, they had a lively discussion with Park City’s Tim Henney.    Henney argued the new zone could open the door to an attempt at a large project, in an area near Quinn’s Junction that is meant for little or no development.   Henney alleged county staff are encouraging this new project.

The Park City Council discussed the future of the municipal transit system for two hours at Thursday’s council meeting. 

Park City Transportation Director Alfred Knotts says, after 40 years of operation, the Park City Transit system has reached its limit—in every way.

“Park City Transit is at capacity," Knotts said. "In terms of employees, in terms of facility space, in terms of equipment and in terms of fleet maintenance and everything that comes along with operating this system.”

$100 or 100 signatures—that’s what it could take for Park City residents to file their candidacy for city council. Park City Recorder Michelle Kellogg says requiring some sort of filing fee or other elections filing requirement for candidates is a trend across the state.
