Wait, did I read this right? D&B didn't approach Park City about this --- instead, Park City wants to approach D&B? I'm all for something new and fun in PC, but an unoriginal, corporate restaurant? How about talking to independent business owners who have an interest in small-town commerce? This bums me out.

Dave and Busters is a very low-class entertainment/restaurant franchise. A chuck-e-cheese for adults. Park City is better than that. And I would hope people can come up with something better.

This is what happens when Government gets bloated... just think what the assistant assistant city manager might devise!!! I agree with both Tacky and Fer real, PC is better than D&B and should think about SMALL Business owners!

D&B needs half a million people within riving distance. AKA 15 minutes. This is a joke, they will never come here.

We need a new cultural center to celibrate our great diversity here in Park city. A real show place to show the world we accept all people and love all. A larger LGBT hostel with an european interaction room would be great and is needed. We need to teach people to experimente and try all things offered at least once. More minorties need to be included in the Federal stimulas plan to integrate all white communites like Park City and change the complexion of local and county government employees. We need more low income people to move to Park City to break the strangle hold here.

You just gave a very good reason that this is EXACTLY where they belong.

Very disappointing and not really the role of government. Let the market decide.

I challenge any of you to Call the Real Estate Department of Dave and Busters.

Here is they site requirements pulled off their website.

We only need to have 450,000 more people move here, and they will consider Park City.

Market Requirements
Super-regional Draw:
1,000,000 SF retail (1/4 mile)
100,000 daytime population (3 miles)
500,000 population (10 miles)

Maybe the requirements would be lower for a resort area where people are spending a greater percentage of their evenings seeking entertainment/spending money. Maybe.

On the other hand, aren't people there to ski?
