Park City Council meeting on October 6 to consider needs of senior citizens and the Sustainable Tourism Plan

PARK CITY, Utah — Park City Council is holding its first meeting of the month on October 6 at 6 p.m. You can attend the meeting at 445 Marsac Avenue or online here. These are some of the most important items on the agenda for the October 6 meeting.

First, the city council will discuss the findings from the survey about Park City senior housing. The survey was intended to determine the housing needs and wants of the Park City senior community, and its results can be found here. It sampled 457 participants, including people aged 55-85 and over, and found that 21% of the respondents plan on retiring in Summit County. 77% of respondents reported expecting to have to move to a senior living facility within the near future. The survey summary includes several recommendations for the City council to meet this impending need in Park City, including creating several new senior living developments and facilities.

Second, the city council will consider adopting Resolution 2022-19, recognizing October 2022 as Domestic Violence Awareness Month in Park City. You can find the staff report about Domestic Violence Awareness Month here or read TownLift’s reporting on some of the ways Park City commemorates the month here.

Third, the city council will consider adopting Resolution 18-2022 to implement the Sustainable Tourism Plan. The Park City Chamber of Commerce developed the Plan and attempts to reconcile community and environmental needs with economic benefits for Park City. The Plan steps include public surveys, interviews, and a stewardship council that will continue to evaluate and implement the Sustainable Tourism Plan. In a previous meeting on September 27, the council discussed the Plan and emphasized the need for ongoing public feedback and including diverse voices when implementing the Plan.

Finally, the meeting will include the appointment of Henry Sigg to the Planning Commission to begin his four-year term, which will expire in July 2026. The meeting will also feature the August 2022 budget and tax reports, a programming update from the Arts District, and a bicycle safety report.
