Letters: Thanks for supporting the Treasure bond, Park City

Treasure is secured
Editor:

On behalf of those who worked in support of the bond, we applaud the many Park City officials and staff members who, along with the landowners, were able to make a deal to save Treasure Hill. We are grateful for the support of many individuals who hosted and attended informational sessions, wrote letters to the editor, investigated the details of the transaction, and who voted.

Over the last few months as we worked in support of the city's open space bond, we've listened to our neighbors' questions and concerns in meetings and living rooms across Park City. Perhaps the most compelling reservation people initially had about the bond was that it would take resources away from other good and necessary projects.

As we go forward, we need to continue to support the various ways we can work together to keep Park City the wonderful, vibrant place that it is. This community is connected, engaged and deeply caring. We recognize that we can and should invest in our kids' education, in services for the needy, in housing for the workforce, in the arts, and yes, in open space.

We believe in helping each other, in building community and in working together we do make Park City our treasured mountain home.
