Some Do, Some Don’t

Utah legislators passed a measure last month that would allow the Air Force to construct a morale-welfare-recreation resort hotel complex near Park City but some folks in the designated area are crying foul. According to an Associated Press report (via ABC4-TV), Park City and Summit County officials traveled to Washington to meet with Pentagon officials and Utah lawmakers, protesting that the development, which may include an 800-room hotel and movie production studio, actually skirts local ordinances. Park City Mayor Dana Williams said, “The size, scale, and scope of this project is beyond anything we’ve ever seen.” Summit County Councilman Chris Robinson believes the Utah Congressional delegation doesn’t want to interfere with state legislators, but he said, “This is a process and it’s not over.” According to an earlier report by the Deseret News, State Sen. Mark Madsen thinks the project will boost economic development for Utah.
