Worker-housing approval challenged

Eight people who live close to the land where City Hall wants to build a work force housing project on Friday challenged the recent Planning Commission approval of the development.

They have asked the City Council reconsider the lower panel’s approval.

The local government wants to put up 13 houses on eight acres at 2060 Park Ave. The Planning Commission on July 9 unanimously approved the development, one of City Hall’s most ambitious work force housing projects.

The people listed on the appeal live on either Windrift Lane or Saddle View Way. People who live on those streets or on nearby streets have long been critical of Park City’s plans for the City Hall-controlled land.

They have said the land should remain undeveloped.

Some of the points listed in the appeal include the buildings will be too tall and, they say, the project’s impact on waterways has not been determined.

City Hall officials Monday morning had not set a date for the City Council to hear the appeal.
