Oh please! I hope this is finally true - I've been waiting for years for Costco. Now I'll never have to go to SLC again except for the airport.

This proposal sounds like a win, win, win: a good location for the AF; keeps the hotel out of Quinn's Junction; and provides a Costco without requiring a run down the mountain. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

well, I have one husband who has one wife, and we have three kids, and we shop at Costco all the time, so I hope this passes and we finally get a Costco here in PC.

Resort town or an official welcome to suburbia?

Sam, that bus left long ago... Sadly.

I hope I can buy gas there. There is no excuse for gas to be .20 to .30 more than in the hole (valley).

When the Texaco was across the street from the Chevron prices were on a par with the valley. Then the Texaco went away, the Herbst company bought the Chevron and the prices skyrocketed.

Thankfully electric cars are coming. I guess they'll convert the stations to t-shirt shops.

The Park Record conducted a survey a few years ago, about how often locals drive to SLC for shopping. It found that a lot of people drive there almost daily! These must be retirees who have nothing else to do, I thought. I also thought that the survey was probably paid for by stores like Costco. People here get what they want: a bland consumerist environment, the all american suburb moving to Park City. Great.
Me, I am glad to have left town and moved elsewhere, and no, I did not move to Arizona.

We DO??? Really!!!!! Where are they? I drive up and down Park Avenue many times each week and have yet to see a single car dealership (didn't we lose one this year, but out by I-80?) PayDay loan stores - I know I have seen them down in the valley, but they must be very discreetly hidden up here, as I haven't seen any within Park City. I can't imagine how they get customers with such lack of visibility. We did have one armed robbery - ONE in the last gazillion years - which is more of an aberration than a crime wave. And my business did really well last month because of all the valley people who came up the canyon to escape the inversion and enjoy Park City's wonderfully clean and fresh air. But "GTTD" can't tell the difference between Park City and Murray. Seems like the real problem is not Park city's reality but rather GTTD's brain freeze.

Believe it or not, the imaginary line drawn by St. Mary's church marking a distinction between Park City's incorporated limits and Park City's unincorporated area is not relevant to anyone other than Park City budget dweebs.

70% of Park City High School's students live in unincorporated Park City. There is one school district, one fire department, one chamber of commerce, one visitor's bureau, one sewer district, one address, one bus system.

There are sign postings with the "Park City" offical logo on it at trailheads throughout unincorporated Park City, as well as at bus stops.

Park City's own marketing materials tout Park City as being a Three Resort Town and being home to the Olympic Park.

Where is the Park City Nursery, the Park City Community Church, the Park City Day School's two campuses?

So in every conceivable way possible other than artificial political boundary, all those car dealers on Rasmussen are in Park City.

And yes, there is a payday loan business in Bonanza Plaza.

There is also grafitti and trash along the Rail Trail.

Park City should get a Costco. Then the Silly Market can move into the Costco parking lot as its permanent location. Same caliber of crap!

laf - hardly. the silly market fits right in on mainstreet - jut another tourist trap. who in their right mind (other than a tourist) would actually buy something on main street when it could be purchased for substantially less just a mile or 2 away.
