Treasure’s fate won’t be put to voters on Election Day

Negotiators have not made enough progress to ask for millions in a bond election

City Hall will not ask voters on Election Day to finance a conservation deal for all or part of the Sweeney family’s Treasure acreage, acknowledging that the negotiations between the two sides have not yet made enough advances to put a ballot measure to Parkites in November.

Park City officials outlined the decision not to pursue a ballot measure in a prepared statement released on Thursday. They were facing a fast-approaching deadline to prepare one. State law would have required the decision to put a ballot measure to voters in November be made by Aug. 25. The deadline left little time for the two sides to craft ballot language for what likely would have been a polarizing request to voters to approve conservation bonds, perhaps totaling nearly $50 million, to fund a deal.
