Park City readies for tone-setting Treasure meetings

The Park City Planning Commission, a panel that has spent more than a decade considering the Treasure development proposal with a series of stops and starts, on Wednesday is scheduled to receive a briefing about possibilities for the hillside land should the project be reimagined as a smaller proposal.

The panel is not expected to dwell on details since a redone application has not been submitted, but Planning Commissioners on Wednesday could provide some insight to their thinking about a development. The Park City Council the next day is poised to discuss Treasure as well during a meeting that will include members of the Planning Commission. The two gatherings could set a tone as the sides press ahead with the Treasure talks in 2018.

The Treasure proposal the Planning Commission tabled earlier in December involved upward of 1 million square feet while a reimagined project would be greatly reduced in scope and include a boutique hotel and houses. A redone project hinges on Park City voters in 2018 approving a $24 million ballot measure to acquire a 50 percent stake in Treasure. If the ballot measure fails, the project would be expected to return to the Planning Commission in a slightly reduced form.

Bruce Erickson, the planning director at City Hall, said the Treasure side on Wednesday is expected to present initial ideas for a development that is half the size of the one that was under consideration before it was tabled.
