CITY NEWS: OCTOBER 4, 2018

A bi-weekly update from Park City Municipal Corporation

 

A NOTE FROM MAYOR BEERMAN

Utah Climate Week kicked off Monday, October 1, and Park City is excited to host events throughout the week to help bring awareness to the ways in which climate change affects Utah. The week serves as an important reminder of the City’s Critical Community Priority of Energy/Sustainability, and the steps we have taken to meet our goal of being a net zero organization by 2022, and a net zero community by 2032. We have much work to do, but we’ve made great progress and will continue our efforts in earnest. Though Park City is a small, tight-knit community, we have big ideas and larger impacts on state and national affairs– and can set an example!

So please join me, Rep. Tim Quinn, and Bill White on Saturday, October 13 from 10:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. at McPolin Farm for a conversation about current City projects and initiatives including open space, regenerative agriculture, and more. This event is a great opportunity to ask your questions, and share or gather information – all topics are welcome, and we want your feedback.

Also, please don’t forget Election Day is Tuesday, November 6– just a month away. Your opinion and vote matters – it is part of what makes the Park City community so special!

-Mayor Andy
