Sounds like a great idea! Ties to Sundance are obvious, especially timely given the recent Festival. They should build a suite of theaters too--some the screening rooms are getting tired. The Festival deserves better! I can't imagine the governments would object--what better, more compatible use could there be?

Stupid idea. Landowner keeps losing lawsuits so goes to the Legislature (big contributor) to get his way. Need ethics, Madsen? Of course, the Legislature will pass more stupid "message" bills railing against the Feds (remember Gov. Herbert's "we are not a colony"?) and then run roughshod over local communities. Just like MIDA, but this time they can't use the military to hide behind.

Why would the property owner waste that space on a movie studio?

They ought to put in an ihop, chilli's, wingers, a payless shoes, and another walmart out at Quinns.

what type of movies. we do not need it. The HS has a very nice AV dept and we have a great movie night at the library with all types of movies. That is all we need. Keep those Hollywood types out of our fair city.

property rights? perhaps we should get a senetor to pass a bill to allow a pig farm next to Madsens house in Lehi. Best government money can buy

This sounds unusual from the standpoint that the mainstream movie industry has tended to migrate out of the US to Mexico (Baja), or Canada (Vancouver), to reduce their operating/production costs.

Perhaps these guys run a "niche" enterprise for adult viewers......The short PC summer would hamper their outdoor shooting schedule.

WE DO NOT NEED THEM! They just want to take advantage of us. We need to stick to the basics and be rid of these type of people. They bring nothing but problems.

Raleigh pays for Madsen's campaign then Madsen says it would be great to have nice resident thugs (did anyone see the crew Raleigh sent to the Summit County meeting Tuesday night?) 30,000 new people from LA. And override Summit County's development code so we could have huge ugly box buildings, traffic, and no more wildlife or open space. Not a good idea but we understand he needs to cater to Raleigh.

They bring nothing but problems? Are you insane? When film productions come to town, so does their money. Jobs are created for US, OUR hotels are slept in, OUR restaurants and retail stores are frequented. Film production in our state is a wonderful thing for all of us!

I DID attend that meeting - I was one of your so-called resident thugs. First of all, Raleigh didn't send any of us. I learned that day about the meeting and what Park City & Summit County were trying to do. I video recorded the city & county officials admit that the amendment to the zoning of that parcel of land was completely frivolous and had zero merit whatsoever.(
)
Fact is, many citizens WANT them to come because they will bring jobs that we need. Millions of dollars will flood into the local businesses annually specifically because of this studio, through hotel stays, meals, retail purchasing, etc.
As far as traffic - yes, some extra traffic will be created but this parcel of land is not in the city. It boarders the freeway that passes by Jordenelle. It's out of the way. And as far appearance; Raleigh builds a beautiful studio!

I watched your youtube videos and they don't show anything of consequence. I also went to the Raleigh studios website http://raleighstudios.com/ and if this is what you think is beautiful, please go somewhere else. The "upzoning" for the County to the City level of density would be around 86,000 square feet, not the 325,000 that Erikson wants. I would say that is a huge change and more than "some extra traffic". No thank you.

The meeting was full of union thugs and the new black panthers with clubs holding letters from Holder and Obama saying they had a right to beat down anybody that disagrees with them. It was quite fun and about time. You better agree with us!

Jim,(it's obvious from reading the tone and timing of posts on the various threads you are also "Jim Jepson") what is your interest in this studio being here? Just curious. Maybe the local taxpayers and citizens should be able to decide what we want in our community, despite what someone down in Utah county thinks is best for us.

The landowner is not losing lawsuits; get your facts Townie. Furthermore, the landowner is fighting for a just cause and his rights as a property owner. Park City and Summit County are corrupt. I hope legislation overrides Summit County's development code. It's time for the communism to stop.
