Treasure developers craft intense timeline toward momentous vote
The Treasure partnership, preparing to return to City Hall for talks about the disputed project after a hiatus that has lasted since 2010, has requested Park City officials proceed on a schedule that starts in April and finishes with a vote late in September.
It would be an intense timeline for the partnership, City Hall staffers and the Park City Planning Commission, which is the panel that will eventually be asked to cast what will be a momentous vote on the project.
It is not clear whether the figures on the City Hall side will agree to the schedule outlined by the Treasure partnership. Members of the Planning Commission, especially, could argue more time is needed to review a project of Treasure’s breadth upward of 1 million square feet of development in a highly visible location overlooking Old Town.
"We’ll take all the time we need. Just because the Sweeneys want to proceed along a certain timeline doesn’t mean we’ll necessarily do that," Adam Strachan, the chairman of Planning Commission, said.
Pat Sweeney, who represents his family’s side in the Treasure partnership, requested the timeline in a two-page letter dated on Friday. The letter indicates the Treasure side wants to spend five meetings outlining the project to the Planning Commission. A sixth meeting would be held for the Treasure partnership to respond to the input, according to the timeline. The partnership expects a vote will be cast at a seventh meeting.
The timeline starts with a meeting on April 27 and ends with one on Sept. 28, when a vote is sought. Some of the highlights include:
Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.

Parkites see traffic and transportation as Park City’s biggest challenge over the next five to 10 years, a City Hall-hired firm that is leading the efforts to craft a community vision has found as part of its research. And they also see transportation solutions as one of the two top opportunities, alongside strategic development, during the same period, the research found.
