Tickets will be converted to warnings

Approximately 20-30 parking tickets that were issued along Deer Valley Drive loop last Sunday, Feb. 10 in the afternoon will be converted into warnings without fines, according to Park City Police Captain Phil Kirk.

There is an agreement between the Park City Police Department and Deer Valley Resort that if the regular parking lots are full, guests may find overflow parking along the outside of Deer Valley Drive only. But due to confusion last weekend some guests were given parking citations.

While details are still being worked out, Kirk says they will most likely send a letter to the car’s registered owner informing them that the citations have be converted to warnings. Any questions can be directed to Jim Weinberg, customer service representative at Public Works at (435) 615-5352.

With increased parking demands due to the Presidents’ Day holiday weekend, Deer Valley spokesperson Erin Grady says the resort encourages guests to take public transportation to the resort to alleviate traffic and parking issues.

Park City Mountain Resort also encourages guests to take the public transportation to the resort. Overflow parking for PCMR is located at City Park, then the skateboard park. On weekends and holidays guests can park at Treasure Mountain Middle School and McPolin Elementary, followed by Park City High School. All overflow parking lots are on the bus route and have covered bus stops. Underground pay parking is also available under the Town Lift or the Marriott or Caledonian Hotels.

Overflow parking at The Canyons Resort is directed to other lots on their property, primarily the Red Hawk lot, located in front of the Silverado.
