PARK CITY, Utah — On Friday, August 5, Leadership Park City 28 (LPC28) announced the launch of a Senior Housing Survey. Those 55 and older interested in the future of senior housing in Park City are encouraged to participate in the survey.
The survey chosen by LPC28 will help inform what types of housing are needed or wanted, whether subsidized or unsubsidized options. After completing the survey, information and potential solutions will be presented to both City and County leadership.
“Housing is obviously a huge buzzword in Park City; it’s an issue across the board,” said Kathy Kahn, LPC28 class member in a press release. “We chose to tackle senior housing as our class project because it has become an increasingly important topic of discussion for Parkites and the greater community. Do we need senior housing? If so, what does that look like? What do our seniors want?”
As part of the survey, participants spent several months researching senior housing in 10 other mountain areas, including Heber and Salt Lake counties. There has been collaboration with Park City Municipal, Summit County, and the Gray Ribbon Committee, which help determined the depth of questions being asked was in line with City and County goals.
“We really went about this very meticulously as we wanted to produce a thoughtful, high-quality survey that would provide a good data set City and County leadership can reference as they tackle this issue,” said Kahn. “We are excited to unveil the survey, and we look forward to presenting the community’s input to City and County councils this fall.”
Leadership Park City members choose a new project every year that targets a challenging issue in the community with the goal of finding a solution.
The class is designed to identify and train future community leaders by providing classes to longer-term members and group-oriented learning opportunities.
The survey will conclude on September 6.
