Keep Park City Beautiful

Don’t let a developer’s vision of an over-crowded PCMR become our reality

<?php echo pulse_output(); ?>

As you may be aware, the Park City Planning Commission is currently reviewing a proposal for the development of the entire parking lot area at the base of Park City Mountain Resort. The proposed development replaces the PC charm with 8 story high buildings and parking structures. Help us make sure Park City has a plan that addresses congestion, traffic and pedestrian safety. Join RRAD to voice your concerns and advocate for responsible development of PCMR.

Developer Plans for Park City’s
Base Mountain Parking Lots

The proposed development by PEG deviates from the original 1998 DA in several ways including building heights, setbacks, view corridors, and traffic circulation as well as pedestrian connectivity and safety. Get involved; help preserve the beauty and charm of Park City!

THE GOAL OF A MASTER PLANNED DEVELOPMENT

PEG'S Over-Crowded
Development

Excessive Height / Dorm Style Architecture

>100 feet in places, overwhelming and incompatible with the surrounding neighborhood.

Excessive Density

Significantly exceeds (2-3-times) what is currently permitted in zoning.

Obtrusive Parking Structure

Unapproved above ground parking, resulting in 8 story buildings.

Increased Gridlock

Lengthened commute and circulation times for the resort and Park City, additional spill-over to surrounding neighborhoods.

Lack of Pedestrian Access & Safety

Vehicle/pedestrian conflicts and increased risk for injuries and fatalities. No pedestrian tunnel or bridge.

Lack of Public Transportation Improvements

Lack of public transportation coordination and connectivity with the City and resorts.

RRAD’s Responsible Development Vision

Design to Compliment Resort Landscape and Lifestyle

Asks Planning Commission to uphold the original 1998 DA with Mountain Contemporary style buildings.

Responsible Development

Recommends less units that blend into the mountain base and provides more open space for quality of life and healthy living.

Planned Parking

Requests thoughtful parking planning to compliment PCMR and provide an adequate number of parking spaces for day skiers and other resort amenities and services.

Safety and Reduced Traffic Planning

Partners with local Transportation Department to create increased bus service or shuttle service to reduce traffic.

Pedestrian Safety and Planning

Asks for increased sidewalk space and pedestrian access planning giving consideration to pedestrian bridges or tunnels to ensure a safe passage while creating a more inviting PCMR walking experience for locals and visitors alike.

Increased Public Transportation

Encourages additional plans to partner with local Transportation Department to create increased bus service or shuttle service with dedicated lanes to improve the rider experience and reduce congestion.

About RRAD

Responsible Resort Area Development Coalition

RRAD was formed, not to oppose development, but to help promote thoughtful development that benefits the broader Park City community. We believe that the development of the Base Area represents a unique and historic opportunity to reshape the future, not just of PCMR, but of the entire City. Approval of this proposed development could come as early as March 2021 and the impact will be felt for generations.

It is our responsibility to stand together to ensure the development of the Base Area enhances the lives, property values, and businesses now and into the future. We are asking the Planning Commission to address serious concerns surrounding the proposed PEG development of PCMR including: increased traffic, pedestrian safety, public transportation, open spaces and sidewalks as well as demand a responsible number of units developed to create a balanced community plan.

It will take every one of our voices to stand up and insist that the Park City Planning Commission listen and respect the community’s desire to maintain the beauty, safety and quality of life that we cherish in our town; and to follow the 1998 Development Agreement which embraced the beautiful ski lodge architecture that compliments the stunning mountain views we call home. Together, through responsible and thoughtful development, we can create a world class village at the base of PCMR that is exciting and beneficial for everyone in the community!

Watch Our Video

and make your voice heard!

This video was put together by Responsible Resort Area Development (RRAD) to encourage you to contact the Planning Commission via email or virtual meeting participation if you share any of RRAD’s concerns. We are not anti-development; we just want it done in a way that benefits the community and not only the developer. To highlight, the existing surface lots will all have either condos, parking and/or a hotel developed in the space and the increase in traffic and overall density will be phenomenal. It could have a serious impact on the quality of life for residents and those who choose to visit Park City.

FAQ

Absolutely not! We are not anti-development. In fact, we believe the PCMR Experience can be improved with development, it just needs to be done in a way that compliments the existing resort center and has a net benefit to the community and visitors alike.

RRAD is a group of residents and second homeowners who have concerns specifically regarding the increase in traffic, density, building heights and pedestrian/bike connectivity and safety.

Construction would begin March 1, 2022 and continue for 5-7 years to complete all parcels.

RRAD has hired an attorney to clearly identify and present to the Planning Commission the aspects of the proposal which deviate from legal agreements, ordinances and codes. Some of the deviations pertain to building heights and setbacks, view corridors and pedestrian access and overall traffic circulation.

Which view would you prefer?

Park City Mountain Contemporary or Big City High Rise

Towering buildings. Diminished views. Narrow sidewalks. Increased traffic congestion. Don’t let this become the future of Park City. We do not oppose development, but believe together, through responsible development, we can create a world class village at the base of PCMR that is exciting and beneficial for residents and visitors alike!

Preserve PCMR, Keep Informed

RRAD is working hard to keep the community informed on the approval process of the proposed development, the agenda for upcoming Planning Commission meetings, and other relevant information so our community can continue to grow responsibly and maintain the Park City vibe! It will take every one of our voices to stand up and insist that the Planning Commission uphold the 1998 Development Agreement, current code and ordinances and align with the PC Vision 2020 study to maintain the beauty, safety and quality of life that we cherish in our town.
