The chair of the Park City Planning Commission on Wednesday said he will resign from the influential panel.

John Phillips indicated the departure is based on unspecified personal reasons. He said he will remain on the Planning Commission as long as Mayor Andy Beerman requests he continue to serve.

The term is scheduled to expire in July of 2022.

It is not clear how long Phillips will remain a member of the Planning Commission. A recruitment for a new member can sometimes take several months.

Phillips was appointed to the Planning Commission in 2013. His time on the panel included the final years of the talks about the controversial Treasure development proposal prior to City Hall acquiring the land in a conservation deal as well as the ongoing discussions regarding a proposal for a major development at Park City Mountain Resort.

It seems Phillips could depart the Planning Commission prior to a panel vote on the project sought at PCMR, the most controversial development currently under review. A timeline for a vote is unclear, but it appears a decision could be months away.
