Cline Dahle… Where does the water come from ?

C

Summit County seems hell bent on putting 600 or more units of affordable housing between Jeremy Ranch Elementary School and the Burt Brothers complex (The Cline Dale parcel). They are contemplating taking a piece of land that would have had 1 home and are now putting 600-plus homes on it. During this week’s Summit County Council meeting, representatives from the University of Utah presented...

Need a local band for your Park City event? Try Joy and Eric.

N

Last week my wife and I were out on Main Street having dinner. A local band called Joy and Eric were playing. We hadn’t heard them in a couple of years. It reminded me of how good they are. They’ve played Deer Valley, Red Butte, and many other places. As usual, we requested a song by a Colorado band called The Samples. Joy and Eric had played with them years ago. When they played...

First Look: Summit E-Bike

F

You may have heard that Park City and Summit County are launching an e-bike program on July 14. There will be various stations setup across the Basin, where you can rent a Summit E-Bike for a short period. The thought is that tourists will use the e-bike and rely less on a car. The hope is that the resident will use the e-bike to drive to work or use it to get from the bus stop to work. Residents...

Our richest person is pretty low on the “Rich-Scale”

O

We saw this infographic a few days ago. It shows the richest person in each state. In Utah, the richest person is Gail Miller… of Larry H Miller fame. What is interesting though is that her $1.2 Billion net worth puts her at 43rd place on the list. It’s somewhat surprising since Utah often ranks #1 in business in many surveys. You might think that the best business climate would drive...

Get ready for traffic heading to the new Whole Foods

G

I have had a frequent debate with a friend over the location of the new Whole Foods on Landmark Drive. I say the traffic is going to be horrible. My friend says, “I just don’t see that it will add that much traffic.” His point is that Whole Foods by itself won’t crush Landmark Drive. However, something I read today may sway that debate in my favor. As you probably know...

Old Town Cellars is the Type of Business Park City Should Support

O

Are you looking forward to an evening out this summer in Park City? May we suggest stopping by Old Town Cellars (near Vinto) on Main Street. Old Town Cellars was formed in the last few years by locals who wanted to produce great tasting wine in Park City.They buy juice from some of the best wine growing regions, blend, and produce a unique product. You may have seen their Mountain Town Red in the...

Park City and the Basin seem crowded

P

Out of the mouths of babes…. Tonight I was riding on my bike with my five and three year old sons to get pizza in Kimball Junction. All of sudden, out of nowhere, my 5 year old says “wow, this place is crowded.” Yep it felt crowded. For so long we, as a community, have said that the Park City area has horrible traffic. Our leaders have tried to solve that by fixing...

UDOT may bring more affordable housing to Jeremy Ranch

U

To build a wall or to not build a wall — that is the question. In this case we’re not talking Donald Trump. We are talking about a proposed noise barrier being considered by UDOT (Utah Department of Transportation) along I-80 near Jeremy Ranch. As part of the process of adding an additional lane to I-80, UDOT is considering building a 3200 foot long, 18 foot tall concrete wall to...

Should Tommy Tanzer be the next Park City School Board member? In many ways yes.

S

In what had to be one of the wildest school board meetings in recent memory, Park City resident Tommy Tanzer interviewed for the open Park City School Board seat. While the board tried to ask a list of questions, Mr Tanzer wouldn’t have any of it (for a while). Mr Tanzer began by asking if they could follow Costanza rules for the interview — referring to an episode of Seinfeld where...

Park City School Board interviewed three candidates today for vacated board seat

P

The Park City School Board interviewed three candidates for the position vacated by Phil Kaplan. During a quick hour and a half session, the board asked the same questions of candidates and tried to ask questions of a third… but that didn’t go so well. We will post the video of the third candidate’s interview tomorrow. The interviews led off with James Meyer, who was the former...
