Plans for Park City Main Street Move Forward

Press Release

March 8, 2013

The Park City Council reviewed the materials for phase 1 of the Historic Park City Improvement Plan Thursday, setting in motion a 10-year plan to upgrade the infrastructure of Park City’s central commercial thoroughfare. The total improvement plan will invest about $15 million in the area over the next 10 years.

“This plan will make much-needed improvements to our downtown, which is the lifeblood of our community,” said HPCA executive director Alison Butz. “From the sidewalks and curbs to the addition of public plazas and improved connectivity from parking to Main Street, our downtown is getting the makeover it needs to continue serving our residents and tourists for years to come.”

The project, which kicks off in April with improvements to the Egyptian Theatre walkthrough, will be led by MGB+A The Grassli Group. The firm led the design and construction of City Creek Center in downtown Salt Lake City, a complex project that improved driver and pedestrian safety while also injecting economic and aesthetic boosts to the neighborhood.

MGB+A also designed the University of Southern Utah’s Student Center, the Ogden Public Works Department’s headquarters, and Cedar City’s downtown area.

“This firm knows Utah inside and out — they’re from here, they live here, they work here, and they craft smart, innovative, eye-catching designs that fit their communities,” Butz said. “We are confident that their work will make Park City’s renowned Historic District even better.”

The first phase of the project will take place on the east side of Main Street between Fourth and Fifth streets, where workers will install new granite sidewalks and curbs and new light posts.

The project is being funded by the 0.5-percent tax increase on Park City resorts that was approved last year.
