"Why is it not shown?" My guess in answer to Innocent Bystander is that nothing was ever limited, and the final design was an open question. The Sweeneys were so generous they established their own worth, which contractually, had to be met by the City. This is not an argument the City wants to have.

Let them build the "APPROVED" development. This is the point. Stop trying to prevent them from building. Our city leaders bought into the masses and YOUR continued ignorant statements to stop them altogether from building.

FYI if it goes to court we will end up paying the Sweeny's over $93 million. Instead of prompting our city idiots to stop them -- tell them to let thE SWEENEYS build the original approved development.

WE CAN WIN THIS BATTLE.

Let them build what was originally agreed to but not anything larger. Park City is much more than 1 view of the mountain. People are blowing this way out of proportion. It might impact a few folks with their over-priced shacks in Old Town but the vast majority of people in Park City and surrounding areas will not be affected.

Do not spend precious capital on a buy out! If Old Town wants to buy this legal project out - let them and only them pay for it. Do a special assessment for Old Town only.

Ahhhh. No.... this is not a leaglly approved developement for the one million square feet that the sweeneys are requesting. They got approval for 400 something thousand. I say we call their bluff. Tell them to start showing us plans for the ORIGAINLLY agreed amount of square footage. Personally I'd like to see them get tied up in court for years.
Let's face it. If Traesure gets built, Park City will no longer be the town we moved too. It will destroy any semblance of what we have now. I'll be then moving to some less developed ski town, like say Vail.
Vail?? Give me a break. Why don't you go back to Hunter Mountain in NY. You'll fit in there perfectly.

Real Estate developers know just one thing; exploitation of beautiful environments for profit. Sad.

Who cares? Let them build whatever they want. It won't affect the view from my house. Hopefully they'll throw a Starbucks in there.
