Designs for housing considered

by Jay Hamburger OF THE RECORD STAFF

City Hall and a firm the local government selected to design a work force housing project on the edge of Snow Creek plan to hold a forum on Tuesday to gather opinions about the housing.

Officials from the Park City government and Elliott Workgroup, the local firm that won a $40,000 deal to design the housing, will set up in the meeting room at the new police station, 2060 Park Ave.

The forum lasts from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m., and architects, urban planners and engineers will be available. The day’s work will be summarized at 6 p.m., and public comments will be taken then.

City Hall plans to post the results on its site on the World Wide Web, with the Park City Council reviewing the design options in January, before an application is submitted to build the project.

The local government is considering building on 1.8 acres near the police station and Park Avenue post office. Phyllis Robinson, who directs City Hall’s housing program, says the land could hold between 24 and 28 units, but the number could be lowered depending on the design.

Robinson has said City Hall intends to sell the units, but details have not been set. She has indicated she wants construction to start in May 2008, depending on when the city’s Planning Commission considers an application. Robinson expects to file an application with the Planning Department in January.
