PARK CITY, Utah – In a press release from September 7, the Mountain Mediation Center announced a community conversation series in partnership with Park City and Summit County municipal governments regarding a Winter Olympics in summit County. The conversation series, titled “The Utah Olympic Bid: A Summit County Listening Project,” will be intended to allow community members to voice their hopes and concerns in a small-group format.
The conversation series will occur on various dates starting on September 20 through October 6. Details about time, location, and registration can be found here. Spots are limited, and registration is required for participation.
