E-mail blast from opponent precedes Treasure meeting
September 23, 2009
Rich Wyman, long one of the leading development watchdogs in Park City, was sending several hundred e-mail messages Wednesday urging people to attend a hearing that night about the Sweeney family’s Treasure development proposal.
By 2 p.m. Wyman was still sending the messages. He said the Wednesday evening meeting is an important one as the Park City Planning Commission continues its talks about the project. Wyman said the meeting is especially crucial since the panel is slated to discuss the size of the proposed buildings.
Wyman said he plans to testify during a hearing scheduled on Wednesday.
The Planning Commission agenda indicates a two-hour discussion about Treasure is set to start at 6 p.m. A hearing is scheduled at 8 p.m. The meeting is in the Park City Council chambers at the Marsac Building.
Treasure hearings have drawn substantial crowds, but some recent hearings have not been as widely attended as before. It was not clear whether momentum was building among the project opponents as the Wednesday hearing approached.
"PLEASE BE THERE! We need to speak out to save Park City from this massive proposed development right in old town. The effects of this project will be devastating. Please speak out now. Do something. The city needs to hear from ALL OF US NOW!" the e-mail from Wyman says.
