To the owners and developers of the Parkite on Main Street and to whomever approved this project,
As a resident of Rossi Hill, I have watched with encouragement the positive transformation of the old mall on Main Street into The Parkite. And then, to my dismay, the south wall was painted with a color that closely resembles glowing canned-pea green which I can only assume will be used for the rest of the building. Please have mercy on everyone north, south and east of your structure before you continue with that scheme!
The Wasatch is full of greens that would enhance your structure (evergreen, sage to name just two) instead of detracting from the architecture and causing all of us uphill from you to wince when we look out on what normally is a fun and attractive Old Town. Please take a hike or a drive for a better look and reconsider your ill-advised choice before you invest in more paint.

Give Mother Nature a Christmas present: recycle
We are from the Leadership Class at Treasure Mountain Junior High. Currently we are working on a project concerning air quality in our community. Recently, we studied ways to conserve energy during the holiday season. To ensure that Park City stays beautiful and clean, we are inviting the community to cut down on wrapping paper and holiday lights. Please wrap presents in materials such as newspapers, paper bags, maps, or fabric. Also, reuse gift bags! You can save light energy while cutting down on costs of electricity by exchanging your holiday lights for LEDs, which are known to save 80-90 percent in energy costs. Put your holiday lights on a timer, and also cut back on the number of lights you use.

Parsons Dance Company was ‘amazing’
Joyful, creative, and amazing repeated over and again in my mind with all my senses delightfully immersed in the Parsons Dance Company production Dec. 20 at the Eccles theater. Bravo to the Park City Institute for bringing world-class talent here to our Park City. The season has just begun with 15 more shows to see. Treat yourself to a show that you would pay triple to see in NYC-not to mention that the cost and inconvenience of getting to the show in NYC doesn’t compare to the ease of getting to the Eccles in Park City. The next 4 shows are Dec. 30, 31 and Jan. 3, 4.
