Park City's Statement on Withdrawal from Paris Climate Accord
STATEMENT FROM MAYOR JACK THOMAS & ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY MANAGER LUKE CARTIN ON THE UNITED STATES' WITHDRAWAL FROM THE PARIS CLIMATE ACCORD
Park City Municipal Corporation was extremely disappointed with the federal decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord. Given Park City’s commitment to sustainability, our resolve is only strengthened to continue our march forward in the battle against climate change and environmental degradation. So today, we join in solidarity with countless cities, states, and organizations across the United States and world in an effort to continue to advance the environmental policies that will effect real change at the local level. Harnessing the power of community is one of the most powerful tools to influence change, and the Park City community stands strong in our commitment to the principles of the Paris Climate Accord.

Every day is a great day to take alternative transportation, especially in Park City! Take one of the Summit Bike Share ebikes out for a spin or jump on one of our free buses, including the Electric Xpress. It will zip you up and down Sr224, from Kimball Junction to Old Town Transit Center. And the free WiFi lets you get a jump on your emails :). How do you ride Park City?
