PARK CITY, Utah — Park City Municipal (PCM) is hosting an open house on November 17 to receive public feedback on problems, issues, opportunities, and nuances along the Rail Trail.
The city is looking to develop a Rail Trail Master Plan by identifying safety and use issues along the section PCM controls — between Bonanza Drive and SR-248 east of US-40.
The first open house planned will be held November 17, from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. in Coalition 1 at The Prospector Park City.
Additionally, Summit County is currently conducting a survey about the trail:
Paper copies are also available at the county office in Coalville.
County planner Madlyn McDonough is also looking for volunteers and those interested in participating in focus groups — contact [email protected]
In 1989, the railroad company Union Pacific abandoned the rail line leaving a vital corridor connection unused. Local community leaders banded together and worked with the Division of Parks and Recreation to convert the abandoned line into a trail. The Union Pacific Rail Trail State Park was dedicated in 1992 and was inducted into the national Rails to Trails Conservancy Hall of Fame in 2010. (Summit County)
