The Park City Board of Adjustment voted to reverse a decision by the planning commission regarding Park City Municipal’s Woodside Park Phase II. 

The Park City Board of Adjustment met Tuesday to consider an appeal of the Woodside Park Phase II affordable housing project. The appeal is based on the planning commission’s approval of reduced setbacks. Under the land management code, the planning commission can reduce setbacks from the master planned development-required 25 feet to the underlying zone’s requirements, if it’s necessary to provide architectural interest.

The Woodside Park Phase II housing development has been appealed for a second time, after the Park City Planning Commission reaffirmed its approval of the project’s master planned development application. 

After approving the Woodside Park Phase II master planned development application in May, Park City Municipal, as applicant for the project, ran into a hurdle when one neighbor appealed the decision.

Across the street from City Park, on the other side of Park Avenue, freshly painted single-family homes and townhomes sit empty. They’re the units for the first phase of Park City’s Woodside Park housing development, and Park City Housing Manager Jason Glidden says they aren’t quite ready to be occupied yet.

After a decision made by Park City’s Board of Adjustment, the timeframe for constructing the city’s upcoming Woodside Park Phase II affordable housing project has been delayed. 

The Park City Board of Adjustment decided in June to remand the Woodside Park Phase II master planned development application back to the Park City Planning Commission based on one aspect of the project—a reduction in setbacks the board felt wasn’t justified.

The Park City Board of Adjustment on Tuesday partially reversed the decision by the Planning Commission to approve the Woodside Park Phase II master planned development, sending it back to the Commission. 

The Planning Commission approved the City’s housing development at the end of May on a 5-1 vote. Soon after, resident Doug Lee filed an appeal of the Commission’s decision. Because the City is the applicant on the project, the City Council voted to send the appeal to the Board of Adjustment for consideration.

A Park City resident filed an appeal of the Park City Planning Commission’s Woodside Park Phase II master planned development approval. 

Empire Ave. resident Douglas Lee filed the appeal earlier this week. Because the City is the applicant on the project, the City Council will consider forwarding the appeal to the Board of Adjustment. The grounds of the appeal haven’t yet been made public, though senior planner Hannah Tyler says it involves the criteria of the land management code being applied to the project.

The Park City Planning Commission approved the master planned development and conditional use permit, as well as forwarding a positive recommendation to the City Council on a plat amendment, for the Woodside Park Phase II housing development Wednesday.

Park City residents showed up at Wednesday’s Park City Planning Commission meeting to make their thoughts heard—on the record—on the Woodside Park Phase II housing development. The Commission received mixed comments. 

Doug Lee lives on Empire Ave., and the home that his family has owned for 40 years directly abuts the project. Lee says he’s supportive of the City’s goals to provide affordable housing, but he and his attorney assert that the project doesn’t comply with the land management code regarding setbacks, parking, historic preservation and open space.

Park City Municipal hosted a community housing open house Monday, where residents could ask City staff questions and provide feedback on the Woodside Park Phase II housing development. 

Park City Community Development Director Anne Laurent says the questions and comments she heard from community members ran the gamut from design details to opposition to the project.

The Park City Planning Commission will consider a plat amendment, the conditional use permit and the master planned development for the Woodside Park Phase II housing project Wednesday, amid public concern stemming, in part, from the City’s role as both developer and regulator. 

Park City Planning Director Bruce Erickson says though the City is the applicant for the Woodside Park Phase II project, it’s been subject to the same processes and regulations that any private developer would be.
