The clock is ticking on an option to buy down the density of the proposed 1 million-square-foot Treasure Hill project adjacent to Park City’s historic district. But a citizens’ group claims that details of the deal remain too murky to put before voters.
In 1986, the Sweeney family was granted approval for a 415,000 square foot development on their land west of Lowell Avenue near Park City Mountain Resort’s Creole ski run. But several years ago, the family submitted the 1 million-square-foot proposal, which has not been approved.
Park City officials are conducting a survey to see if residents would support a $15 million bond to buy down 25 percent of the original Treasure Hill plan, which includes a luxury hotel, conference center, condominiums and retail space on 12 acres. The remaining 112 acres of Sweeney land would remain as open space.
The $15 million deal also would include moving another 25 percent of the building density north to land near Park City Mountain Resort.
But a group called Treasure Hill Impact Neighborhood Coalition, or THINC, says it isn’t clear whether the 50 percent reduction on site applies to the 1 million square foot proposal or the original one. They maintain the square footage in the deal hasn’t been specified.
