VISION PARK CITY 2009 KICKS OFF ON MARCH 31


Vision Park City 2009, a community-wide visioning and engagement project, kicks off on Tuesday, March 31 at the Yarrow Hotel at 6:00p. The event is free and open to all. Parkites are invited to come and share their stories, dreams and hopes for Park City and help create a collective vision for Park City’s future. 

Vision Park City 2009 coincides with Park City’s 125th anniversary. “As part of that celebration we want to create a shared vision for our future. It’s been a while since we’ve set aside time as a community time to engage with each other in a forward looking process, “ explained Mayor Dana Williams. Park City’s last community visioning process took place in 2002. 

Over the next two months Parkites will explore key issues, articulate the values we cherish and ultimately define a set of guiding principles for the years to come. Vision Park City 2009 begins with the community kick-off on Tuesday, March 31 followed by interviews and small group gatherings.  Over the next few weeks a community photo project will be underway with community members taking photographs which document and discern their cherished values and places.  A second community-wide gathering is tentatively scheduled for the last week in April.    

The success of this project depends on community participation.  “There are many ways to get involved beginning with attending the kick-off on March 31st.  We are looking for community members to host a small group in their home or place of business beginning April 1 and facilitators to assist these small groups,” described Phyllis Robinson, Community and Public Affairs Manager for Park City.   For a complete list of ways to get involved and to sign up for Vision Park City 2009, visit www.parkcity.org or call Phyllis Robinson at 435-615-5189.
