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.
Sorry we don't live in a country where you can do absolutely anything you want. We live by rules and laws and zoning laws have been upheld by the US Supreme Court for over a hundred years. Communities get to make their own zoning. That is not communism, that is the representative republic we have. Tea Partiers like you should go back under your rock.

Good job Townie, that's the most educated thing I've read by you. You're right, we don't live in a country where one can do absolutely anything one wants. That is why the Park City 'constitution' needs to be stopped. You may not be aware, but there is no such thing as the following sequence, federal government, local government and Park City government. Get your head on straight Townie. You're an embarrassment.

Disjointed blather. Try to write something intelligent because I haven't read anything of yours that would classify as "educated".

Your approval means absolutely nothing to me. Facts are facts, it is what it is. Your opinions are careless and unnecessary. Our community could benefit from a great thing. Stop spreading your negativity like wild fire.

I have presented facts; you, on the other hand, have not. Would you like a skyscraper next to your house? I doubt it unless you live in Houston. That is why we have zoning regulations.

Are you relating a movie stuido to a skyscraper? You're losing me here...

From what you have shared, you are not opposed to the project, correct? In your opinion, where is a reasonable place for a movie studio to break ground? Let me guess, on Park City owned land?

Sorry to lose you there. I was trying to relate how and why zoning codes are in place. Erickson seeks to ignore them and do whatever he wants. That was the point. The property has value and he has development rights, just not as much as he wants.

In general, I am not oppposed to the studio. The highway 40 frontage from Home Depot to the Geneva Rock plant, that includes storage facilities and other like industrial uses is probably a fine place. While there is the joint City/County parcel along there that was being dangled for MIDA, the studio doesn't have to go there. The industrial park that Burbidge has started might work. I don't know the County zoning but I would guess it is industrial. After looking at the Raleigh Studio website, a huge windowless box looking worse than Home Depot is not visually appealling on an entrance to Park City. I don't think that is what the City wants to convey to visitors. Mitigating for traffic impacts, among others, would be needed. That frontage road is narrow and a very popular route for bike riders.
