In the spirit of rejuvenation, there are not many ski towns that rank higher on the quaint scale than Park City, but even the cream of the crop needs to spend some extra effort to whip itself into shape every now and then. The Park City Council announced plans this month to begin a decade-long upgrade to this beloved ski town’s infrastructure. A 0.5-percent tax increase on Park City resorts last year will fund the $15-million plan, which includes upgrading the sidewalks and curbs, building public plazas, and improving parking access to Main Street.
Skiers this season won’t have to deal with any construction issues, as the project kicks off in April on the east side of Main Street. Workers will install new granite sidewalks and curbs and new light posts between Fourth and Fifth streets.
