  • Ordinance 2019-46, amending Municipal Code Title 10, Non-Motorized Trail Use. There was significant public comment demonstrating both support and concern for allowing e-mountain bikes on trails. Council approved an amendment to the ordinance, which exempts trail users 65 older to operate Class I e-mountain bikes on all trails in Park City. This coincides with the current exception for users with mobility disabilities. Additionally, Council postponed the recommendation of a pilot project in Round Valley, and instead directed staff to create a task force to help determine next steps associated with e-mountain bike use.
