Treasure Hill Open Houses Receive Heavy Participation
Park City, Utah – August 5, 2010
The Sweeney Family and Park City Municipal co-hosted two public open houses on July
6 and July 13, 2010. The open houses were designed to provide project history,
information about the current proposal as well as to gauge public sentiment on a range
of options up to and including a “no density” option. Approximately 200 people
attended. We received 206 surveys on the options provided (68 in-person and 138
There was a good mix of community participation at the open houses. Preliminary
results indicate that the majority of survey responses are from Old Town (40%) and
Park Meadows (23%). The majority of respondents (76%) selected the “no density”
option. Comments on many of the surveys indicate that respondents would be willing to
consider development with reduced height and more aesthetically pleasing buildings
that fit the Park City atmosphere. Comments indicated that many of the respondents
chose the “no density” option because they did not like the design of any of the other
options presented. Lastly the majority of survey respondents indicated they would
“definitely” or “most likely”, be willing to support a property tax increase to remove
density from the site. Experience on other bond initiatives has shown the level of
support may be affected by the proposed bond amount and financial impact on the
home or business owner.
The surveys do not represent a statistically valid sample and should be considered
information only. A complete summary of the survey responses and comments is
available at www.parkcity.org under the “News” tab.
Moving forward Park City and the Sweeney family will continue to explore development
design alternatives in addition to options for potential purchase, transfer, and/or sale of
density. The City Council will continue to refine the City’s position and will solicit public
input and opinions as it does so.
