During Wednesday’s Summit County Council meeting, the Council will likely approve an agreement between Summit County and Park City to work together to help manage Vail. County Manager Bob Jasper mentioned that items like a lift between PCMR and Canyons would be covered under this, as well as sales tax issues. According to the agreement, it also covers land use decisions, open space, transportation, traffic mitigation, transit, and economic development.
It will be interesting to watch and see when big issues come up, that may impact parties differently, how well this works. But for now, it at least shows that our local governments understand the significance of Vail being in town. As people keep telling me, Vail are the Smartest Guys in the Room. Let’s hope we bring our rocket scientists as well.
