Summer Day Camp Registration Discussion
An item previously discussed with Council, staff provided additional detail into the registration process and guidelines for summer day camp registration, and whether or not those who live in 84060 should be prioritized (which would require proof of residency). There was significant discussion among Council and City staff, and, given the short timeline, it was suggested to hold off on implementing any registration changes until next year’s sign-ups.

PUBLIC INPUT
A Deer Valley Resort representative, alongside City staff and Council, discussed overflow parking issues seen at the resort during the 2018/19 ski season, and ways in which the issues could be mitigated and improved. Deer Valley is allotted a specific percentage of days where the resort can overflow its parking into the public right-of-way. The annual allotment has been exceeded this season, prompting the City to notify Deer Valley that additional public right of way overflow parking is not permitted until the resort returns to discuss this with the Park City Planning Commission.  

 

CONSENT AGENDA

Council approved the following items from the consent agenda:

  • A five year sponsorship agreement with U.S. Ski and Snowboard (formerly, United States Ski and Snowboard Association). Renewing this long-term agreement would allow coaches, staff, and teams to train at PC MARC at no charge, and in return PC MARC is licensed to market the facility as an “Official Training Center of U.S. Ski and Snowboard.”
