Park City Mountain Resort owner Vail Resorts in early June submitted a letter to the Park City Planning Commission in support of a Provo developer’s blueprints for a major project at the resort



Provo, UT – This is a rare public statement by the Colorado firm about the disputed proposal that was made public in the days before another gathering is scheduled about the efforts to remake the base area.

The letter was sent on Vail Resorts letterhead and carries the firm’s Broomfield, Colorado, address. Goar signed the correspondence with his PCMR title, though. Goar is the top staffer at the resort. He says the letter was sent on behalf of a Vail Resorts-linked holding company.

Goar says the project will be transformative for Park City residents and visitors alike and will be instrumental in advancing the community’s efforts to boost the transit system. Much of the letter is centered on transit. He also, however, outlines a desire for a Planning Commission vote in favor of the development proposal, sought by a Provo firm called PEG Companies.

The Provo firm and the Planning Commission have engaged in lengthy talks about traffic and transportation over the little more than a year of meetings that have been held. Members of the public who are following the talks — overwhelmingly in opposition to the project — have closely monitored the related topics of traffic and transportation.
