Do you ever lose faith in the people of Park City?

D

Reading the Park Record Police Blotter this week, the top entry was about four calls to the Police department about potholes. What? Who would call the police about potholes? My god. Maybe they just weren’t getting the response they hoped for from Public Works. Maybe they personally brought this up to City Manager, Diane Foster, and got no response. Then the only recourse they felt they had was to...

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...

Wasatch GOP Vice-Chair Resigns Over Criticism of Equal Pay for Women

W

Fox 13 is reporting that James Green, Wasatch County GOP Vice Chair, has stepped down amid criticism over comments he made about women. According to Fox 13, Green said, “You wouldn’t believe the hateful vile comments and messages I’ve received.” We’re pretty sure that most people felt the same way about his letter to the Park Record. Here is the original letter Green wrote. Here is...

Be careful if you brand your car and drive like a jerk

B

One of the trends around Park City is branding your car. You’ve probably seen the cars around town with decals plastered across the car, magnetic signs on the doors, or signs in windows. They may be advertising their property management company, their coffee shop, their landscaping company, or any of a hundred different businesses. However, we wonder if people realize that marketing works...

Only in Park City ….

O

So, it’s -7 degrees and we are walking our dog at the Run-a-Muck this morning. We are just starting out and meet a woman, finishing her dog walk. She wishes us luck and tells us a secret. “You just have to keep a bag of your dog’s poop in your pocket and that’ll keep your hands warm.” We responded that that seemed “very Park City.” “You don’t...

The problem with surveys…

T

We remember when we first started following the Snyderville Basin Planning Commission, they were discussing an update to the General Plan. The General Plan guides what development should be allowed. Repeatedly, a survey from a few years before, where a hundred residents showed up, and completed some sort of activity, that then ranked the top priorities, was used (in part) to guide the discussion...

Time to Start the War on Cats

T

Now that Park City has effectively ended the War on Dogs (bravo) by opening up regulations on off-leash dogs, we suppose it is time to turn our attention to another animal that may actually be wreaking more havoc in our ecosystem. No, this animal isn’t biting you at Round Valley. It isn’t knocking you off your bike on the Rail Trail… but it is killing the wildlife we all...

Where are your kids going to work? What does the future of Park City work look like?

W

What of my favorite authors is Seth Godin. He has a unique way to looking at the world and distilling it. Rarely have I read a post as good as Seth’s piece on work. For Park City it provides ideas on everything from the direction our kids should take, to school, to what future jobs in Park City look like. A few quotes: “Where did all the good jobs go? They didn’t head to other...

What BREXIT Can Teach us About Clichés in Park City

W

If you haven’t heard (or paid attention to) the fact that Britain is leaving the EU, I would suggest you check out your Schwab Retirement Account. So, the citizens of Great Britain have decided to leave the European Union after 40 years. That’s their own personal decision, and I don’t have a lot to say on that, since it’s their business. However, it appears many American...
