Park City officials met with the CEO of Vail Resorts earlier this week as the Park City Council prepares to discuss the efforts of the Colorado company's trademark application for the words "Park City." KPCW's Leslie Thatcher has more.
On today's Local News Hour, host Leslie Thatcher speaks with Park City planner Kirsten Whetstone and Christy Alexander about the agenda for the Park City Planning Commission including a lot of proposed changes to the Land Management Code and what's next for the Alice Claim development. The Summit County Council is not meeting this week, but Summit County Manager Tom Fisher has details on Monday's night COG meeting and his thoughts about last week's growth forum. Phyllis Robinson and Ann Ober with Park City talk about this week's Community Conversation meetings.
More than 70 people turned out at the city council meeting in Park City Thursday night. Most were there for the public hearing regarding Vail's application to trademark the name Park City. KPCW's Renai Bodley was there:
Vail's attempt to trademark the name Park City just got delayed by dozens of individuals. On Monday, June 6, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted at least 25 different people more time to examine Vail's application to see if they may oppose it. KPCW's Renai Bodley has more.
Vail released this statement Monday evening to KPCW from Kristin Williams, VP of Mountain Community Affairs.
