The push to raise millions of dollars to save a beloved parcel of open space is entering its final month. It’s an effort that’s been in the headlines since last summer, and the county that contains that land is now joining the conversation. KPCW’s Renai Bodley has more on what Wasatch County is doing in regards to Bonanza Flat.
Park City officials won't talk until tomorrow, but they have noticed an agenda item for Thursday's city council meeting that the city council will consider a purchase option for Bonanza Flat.
The proposed purchase price is $38 million. City residents in November agreed to bond for $25 million of that. In a media advisory from Community Engagement Manager Linda Jager, representatives from Park City Council, Summit County Council, and several leading land conservation non-profits will provide a media briefing at 2 pm at the entrance to Park City Hall Thursday.
In their first discussion about a proposed $25 million bond to buy the Bonanza Flat open space, the comments from Park City Council generally supported putting the question to the voters on November 8th. They also heard there's at least one other player interested in the land - an international developer of private resorts. Rick Brough has more.
