SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — The Outlets Park City has been in limbo as some retail businesses have moved out while others have stayed. The future of the property is now up for discussion as the Snyderville Basin Planning Commission will discuss a proposal to redevelop a portion of the area during their work session in their Tuesday meeting.
SRE Ontario LLC is proposing 72,056 square feet of existing retail space would be demolished and replaced by 72,044 square feet that would be turned into a new Harmons grocery store.
The proposed area would be directly west of the AC Hotel By Marriot. The site is near affordable housing to the south and condos to the west. According to the report, if built, the store would likely create 75 full-time positions and 70 part-time positions, with the potential for as much as a 60% increase in positions during busy periods. In addition to the new store, the applicant is requesting another access point be built and redistribution of parking and amenities to the area.
During the work session, staff will seek feedback and direction from the planning commission on how best to proceed. One possible outcome would be that the staff would be directed to return in a future meeting with a set of Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law that would support a recommendation from the commission to Summit County Council. Should the commission determine that the proposed plan does not meet the Snyderville Basin Development Code, there could be a discussion about what revisions would need to be made.
