Park City seeks proposals for new indoor pickleball facility

City offers land for public-private partnership to meet growing demand for year-round courts

PARK CITY, Utah — In response to the increasing demand for year-round pickleball facilities, Park City Municipal Corporation (PCMC) has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the construction and operation of a new indoor pickleball facility on city-owned land.

The RFP, available since June 6, 2024, outlines the city’s plan to lease land at 675 Gilmore Way, located between the Park City Ice Arena and the USSS Center of Excellence, to a qualified respondent who will build, maintain, and operate the facility. Proposals are due by 3:00 p.m. MST on July 9, 2024, and must be submitted electronically via the Utah Public Procurement Place (U3P) or emailed to Grant.Herdrich@parkcity.org.

“The city is excited to explore this opportunity to meet the recreational needs of our residents,” said Grant Herdrich, a representative of PCMC. “We believe a public-private partnership can efficiently deliver this much-needed amenity.”

The project aims to provide accessible pickleball courts to the community, with the requirement that the facility not be a private club and must offer daily fees and passes to the public, including reduced fees for Park City residents. The city emphasizes that the budget for the project is $0.00, with its contribution being limited to the land lease.

Proposals will be evaluated based on several criteria, including the project’s benefits to the city, the construction and business plans, and the respondents’ experience with similar projects. A selection committee will review the submissions and interview top respondents. The final decision will require approval from the City Council.

All questions regarding the RFP must be submitted in writing on the U3P website by 3:00 p.m. on July 1, 2024. Further details and any modifications to the RFP will be posted on the U3P and PCMC websites.

“This initiative represents a significant step towards enhancing recreational facilities in Park City,” added Herdrich. “We encourage all qualified firms to participate in this opportunity.”

For more information, potential respondents can visit the Park City Municipal Corporation website or contact Grant Herdrich at Grant.Herdrich@parkcity.org.
