Pedestrian committe applications are due
By Friday morning, about 10 Parkites had applied sit on the committee that will assist City Hall as the government decides which pedestrian and bicyclist upgrades to pursue with the recently approved $15 million in bonds.
Three regular Parkites will join representatives from City Hall boards and commissions and from interest groups on the panel, such as the city’s Planning Commission and the Park City Chamber/Bureau.
The deadline for submitting applications is Monday, Nov. 19. Appointments of the three are tentatively scheduled on Dec. 13.
Applications are available on City Hall World Wide Web site, http://www.parkcity.org. A link to the application is on the site’s front page. The application asks people to describe their interest in the panel, known as the Walking and Biking Liaison Committee, and requests the people to describe the mission of the committee.
The application is similar to those used by other City Hall boards and commissions.
The committee will consider a wide range of projects that was previously compiled, including expensive options like underpasses and less pricier upgrades. The Park City Council will review the work of the committee and decide which work to fund with the money from the bond.
The City Hall staffer assigned to pedestrian and bicyclist issues, Jonathan Weidenhamer, has said he hopes the committee completes its work by April. That timeline envisions the work being done as the City Council starts its annual budget talks, when decisions about the projects will be made.
