September 2019 Update:
Park City staff briefed City Council on September 12 about an implementation plan for interim, non-invasive, projects to move forward this fall - based on the discussion from the August 15, 2019 Council Meeting. These smaller interim projects are intended as stop-gaps to help alleviate some concerns from residents while a larger and comprehensive data collection, public engagement effort, and strategic implementation plan can be conducted. This larger Old Town Access and Circulation Plan is currently in the scoping phases. An update on scope, goals, deliverables, and timeline will be provided to Council likely in October 2019.
The following is a brief summary of projects you will see this fall in Old Town:
- Commercial Vehicle Drop and Load and Staging Zones - in conjunction with the update to the Commercial Vehicle Licensing requirements (going to City Council on September 26, 2019), Staff plan to implement designated drop and load zones on Main Street, with added staging areas, to help alleviate double parking issues while still allowing vehicles to provide curbside access for their clients. For-Hire Vehicles, and Concierge Vehicles can purchase a hang tag for the vehicle, that allows them to use these curbside locations. Click here to view the CV drop and load and staging locations (this is still a working document in draft form). more information on how to purchase hang tags will be coming soon.
- Establish Commercial Vehicle (CV) Permit for Shuttles and For Hire Vehicles – This permit would be available for Shuttles and For Hire vehicles (in place of current For Hire License). Costs for these permits is lower than current For Hire licenses, Applications and renewals can be emailed or emailed with pictures of drivers and stickers will be mailed to drivers to affix to their vehicle at their convenience. Additionally, commercial vehicle drivers will be issued a badge with their picture on it to indicate that the driver has been supplied all necessary documents to be eligible as a driver.
