City Hall next week has scheduled an open house to provide information about a diverse list of projects that are planned in 2014, giving Parkites a one-stop shop that will cover items ranging from waterworks upgrades to tree planting.

The event is set for Tuesday from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the library at Park City High School. City Hall staffers representing each of the projects will be at the open house. Some City Hall consultants are also expected to attend.

Phyllis Robinson, who handles public affairs for City Hall, said the open house will be an efficient use of time for staffers and Parkites since information will be available for each of the projects at one event. She said it will be the first such event City Hall has held. Open houses organized by the city typically cover a single project or a few related ones.

Some of the projects that will be represented at the event include:

  • the public sector upgrades along Main Street, such as sidewalks and a plaza

  • the second phase of the beautification of Deer Valley Drive

  • a retaining wall along Royal Street

  • upgrades for bicyclist safety along Park Avenue

  • a forestry plan, including addressing historic trees and landscaping rules

  • a water line from the Judge Tunnel to Quinn's Junction

  • water conservation efforts

  • roadway striping along S.R. 224

    There will also be staffers able to answer questions about the upcoming ambitious renovation of the Park City Library and Education Center. Plans and a timeline will be available. The Mountain Accord, a group addressing issues like transit, the economy, the environment and recreation, in the Wasatch Mountains, will be represented. City Hall is a participant in the Mountain Accord.

    The open house will cover public sector projects rather than ones that are expected to be undertaken by the private sector this year. It seems likely staffers at the open house could field questions about private sector Main Street projects, however, and how they could relate to the work planned by City Hall along the street.

    Work is anticipated to start on the list of City Hall projects later in the spring. Robinson said officials have started outreach efforts to neighborhoods that will be impacted by the various projects.
