Well that just ruins Park City a lot more. A New Yorker! Wow the Sweeney's name is analogous with "greed."

The City should have thought twice when granting the development rights back in the 80's. "Development Rights" are exactly as stated, they are legal rights to develop. The mere fact that the Sweeny family are allowing discussions and not just building, or suing the city, is very telling about their character. These rights were in place as new development was built since then. All those who were in town at the time were all aware of the potential for future development. Once you make a decision, learn to live with it. Didn't your parents teach you that crying gets you know where? If you have a legitimate issue with the development rights then take it to court.

It is e Sweeny family that needs to learn to stop crying. The current plan is exponentially larger than what was approved. They would have a case if they wanted to build what was approved.

The Sweeney family does not need to stop crying,and should not be called greedy. They should be applauded. They are more part of this town than any of you. To have ties to New York big deal. We are all transplants and have ties in other parts of the country. Why doesn't any one talk about the owenrs of Park city resort. they are 100% behind the sweeny's and rightfully so. Free open space is nice but can't be defended. it is their land and not YOUR town. It is OUR town and more developement may bother your free open space or you walking trails but it will help our city survive. Ths is the vision that was in place for all these years. Trafic and parking problems- really in a mountian town? That's unusual.

My experience in pc is the same. Development, building permits, even law enforcement is based on who you are. I've had details of a house denied when a realtor and city hall insider had the same ones encouraged.

Just because there is a New York resident involved in the project is no reason to treat it any differently.

And before people whip out the "New York stereotypes" you are well to realize that pc is about the most obnoxious place there is. Some of you need to get out more and realize that.

Wow, pigo, you have done it again. "PC is the about the most obnoxious place there is ?" We "need to get out there and realize that "? Sorry, dude, I do not concur with your opinion. Nor does anyone I know who lives here or visits. What is wrong with you?
Absolutely everyone I know who has visited PC has said the same thing, "what a friendly town this is !"
Have you heard of the term "projection" ? Projection is people claiming that traits within themselves are actually traits that exist outside of themselves, like in other people, or places. When you say PC is obnoxious, you are really saying that you yourself are obnoxious, which your posts from Boise tend to confirm, over and over again.

Does "absolutely everyone" include those that have been there more than once? That place is a pretentious sh*thole.

Once the cash cow dried up I couldn't get out fast enough (only recently). But not to Boise, I mung my location. Check back, I've been "from" many different places.

Heber? Not bad. A cowboy town. And that's not a bad thing. I like that part of it. It does have a scummy element though, that moved from park sh*tty so that they could feel superior to those lowly "heberites".

I have never heard of anyone moving from a resort town to a farm town in order to feel superior" to anyone else. This claim is just as stupid as pigo's other statements.
Does foulness just drip out of your face all the time?.What a sad case.
