Park City honors preservation work on ski slopes
THE PARK RECORD
Park City recently honored work at the site of the California-Comstock Mine on the slopes of Park City Mountain Resort with a Historic Preservation Award, given to projects that advance City Hall’s desire to ensure the historic fabric of the community remains intact.
City Hall, PCMR and a group known as Friends of Ski Mountain Mining History teamed for the work, which included stabilizing the wooden building with a foundation made of stacked stones.
A painting of the California-Comstock Mine commissioned as part of the award recognition, displayed by Rock and Beatlebrox, will hang at the Marsac Building.
The California-Comstock Mine work was previously honored by Preservation Utah, a statewide organization, with an annual award as well. The award was in the category of stabilization, restoration or renovation. City Hall, a Vail Resorts subsidiary and the Friends of Ski Mountain Mining History were listed as the nominees.
A critic of a Park City workforce or otherwise affordable housing project in Old Town said he is considering an appeal of the Park City Planning Commission’s approval of the development.
