For the Record: What should be the priority for PCMR parking lots development?

Each week, The Park Record asks For the Record, encouraging residents and visitors to weigh in on a topic of interest. Last week, Vail Resorts announced an agreement to sell the Park City Mountain Resort parking lots to Provo-based firm PEG Companies, a deal that anticipates a major development at the resort. The development will include a variety of mixed-use similar to some of what already exists at the resort base.

The Park Record wants to know what the top priority should be as a development proposal is crafted for the base area. Comment with your own answer below, or consider sending a letter to the editor.

Alex Chamberland, Park City
Keeping the parking free. Keeping it free and keeping locals in mind and not just trying to make money off of (redevelopment).

Michelangelo Nicholas, Prospector
Transportation (should be the No. 1 goal). I don’t know if there should be more parking but an easier way to get on the mountain would be my priority.

Owen Weinman, Prospector
To remain as untouched as they can possibly manage that, which I know is an impossible task for developers. If they put another hotel there it means more people are going to come.

David Clark, Newpark
I would have them do it the way they’ve done it in Europe. They have high rises and (developed) it in a beautiful way. I’d rather have as much open space as possible by building up.
