But on the other side of those boundary lines there is development taking place that could have economic and visual impacts on Park City. Should the city take steps to control the growth that's outside its windows? Or should we leave development develop-ment decisions up to the planners and commissioners of Summit County? Since the spring of 1981, a consulting team headed by Gage Davis Assoc. has r.w-;. working on a long-teim annexation policy and program pro-gram to answer those questions. ques-tions. Many factors had to be analyzed during their study, including a look at the economy, and projections of population and commercial growth in Park City and the Snyderville Basin through the year 2000. Before annexing annex-ing land, the city must weigh the benefit of increased sales and property taxes against the cost of capital improvements improve-ments and providing services ser-vices to a larger area. Last Thursday, Nolan Rosall and Chris Cares of Gage Davis appeared before the City Council at a work session to present a summary sum-mary of their annexation study. They offered the council observations about the future growth of the area based upon a market study, then provided them with three alternatives for annexation. annex-ation. The market study showed that: The Park City Snyderville Snyder-ville Basin study area is projected to have a full-time resident population of 15,800 by 1990 and 27,200 by 2000. Primary housing construction con-struction will become more important as the area gradually grad-ually becomes more of a suburb to Salt Lake. Second-home Second-home construction is expect- ed to account for approximately approxi-mately 40 percent of all residential construction, but its share will gradually decline. The rate of industrial development is expected to be modest, and employment from industrial growth is not expected to have a major impact on residential development. de-velopment. Oil and gas exploration and development in the Overthrust Belt is not expected ex-pected to have a major impact on the surrounding area. Skiing and other visitor-related visitor-related activities will remain of primary importance to the local economy. Peak day population during the ski season is expected to reach 45.000 in 1990 and 63,000 in zuOo. Because of the historic charm and intimate scale of buildings along Main Street, that area will continue to attract shops and restaurants res-taurants that cater to skiers and other visitors. Demolition Demol-ition of the historic buildings for more intensive reuse would weaken Park City's ability to attract tourist retail trade. According to the consultants, consul-tants, state annexation law supports urban development contiguous to and as a part of existing cities. "However, Summit County, Coun-ty, through its liberal granting grant-ing of rezoning and subdivision sub-division requests outside of Park City in effect has undermined the ability of that type of development scenario to occur," states the study. "It has encouraged, encour-aged, instead, a pattern of scattered, leap-frog development develop-ment in the Snyderville area which is now and will become increasingly difficult dif-ficult to manage and serve in an economical fashion." As new units are built, said the consultants, the demand will increase for overlapping special districts, immediate annexation to Park City, or incorporation of entirely new cities right outside our city limits. The result will be "crisis reaction rather than long-range planning," they said. The consultants offered three alternatives to avoid crisis and to facilitate planning: plann-ing: 1. The creation of a combined com-bined city-county governmental govern-mental structure, whose boundaries would be the same as those of the Snyderville Snyder-ville sewer, school and fire districts. A single governmental govern-mental body would be responsible res-ponsible for all planning, land use, service delivery, fiscal management and other administrative functions. func-tions. With the combined tax base of county add city taxes, the alternative becomes be-comes economically viable, although the study admits there are legal and political questions yet to be answered. an-swered. 2. Limit annexation to the boundaries of the interim annexation policy adopted several months ago, which includes open space at the approaches to Park City, particularly north to Quarry Mountain. This approach would be the most conservative, conser-vative, and an economic analysis shows the annexed area would pay for itself, plus provide development control at Park City's doorstep. door-step. 3. Create a new county with minor expansion of Park City's limit to those of the interim policy. This would combine aspects of the first two alternatives: a county coterminous with the Snyderville Sny-derville Basin, and city limits as outlined above. However, this approach includes in-cludes two layers of government: govern-ment: a city council and a county commission that may not work any differently than the current system. A fourth option was proposed prop-osed by City Manager Arlene Loble and planners Mike Vance and Bill Ligety: expand the boundaries of the interim annexation policy to include the area from Prospector Pros-pector Square to Highway 40 and out to the junction of Interstate 80. Since the area is largely undeveloped, it would not have the servicing requirements or costs of Roland Savage Death attributed to heart failure Police confirmed Friday that 60-year-old Park City resident Richard Roland Savage died Jan. 5 of heart failure. Mr. Savage was discovered discov-ered by a neighbor slumped over in the front seat of his truck, which was idling in a parking spot across from his Rossi Hill home. Paul Har-rold Har-rold contacted the Coalville dispatch and reported an asphyxiation, believing that Mr. Savage had died from carbon monoxide poisoning, since the tailpipe of the truck was buried in the snow. Park City Police Detective Lloyd Evans said Mr. Savage's Sav-age's body was taken to the Utah Medical Examiner's office in Salt Lake City, where an autopsy confirmed that death was caused by heart failure. Mr. Savage was born Feb. 9, 1921 in Salt Lake City to Herbert William and Mar garet Jane Mulcahey Savage. Sav-age. He married Delores Bates, but later was divorced. di-vorced. He is survived by brothers John T. of Tooele, William J. of West Valley City and sister Kathleen A. of Park City, and four nephews. A Requiem Mass was held Saturday at St. " Mary's Catholic Church in Park City, followed by burial in the Park City Cemetery.

That area has been discussed for use as an industrial park, employee housing and the site of an airport. In response to the alternatives, alter-natives, Councilwoman Tina Lewis expressed interest in creating Park County. If that proved unviable, she suggested sug-gested a limited expansion of park City. Councilman Bill Coleman disagreed, saying that the economic basis for a Park County was not sound. Rather than define an annexation annex-ation boundary, he suggested suggest-ed that the city express interest in all development in the area, and work with the county to develop it in an efficient and economic way, with an eye toward future annexation. Councilwoman Helen Alvarez Al-varez said that "the best method is to barricade the town," to keep the city small, while Councilman Bob Wells offered support for annexation of land to the north and east, including the area outlined for the industrial indus-trial park and airport. v While the Gage Davis consultants further review the options to offer wore input to the City Council City Manager Loble asked attorney Tom Clyde to investigate inves-tigate how a city-county is set up and operated. Said consultant Rosall: "I think the city-county option is the most beneficial thing the city can do, if you can pull it off." AW-jpl Bit M: m Mjt Avm mW mf mtm AWm-m urn Mm.- t im L" "'""t'aWpr ii m m b Whadd'ya Know? There are only seven shopping days left until the U.S. Film & Video Festival. At this date, even the Salt Lake papers are full of it that is, full of news about the festival. Rumors are flying about the films, video programs, and celebrities who will appear. The list of people tentatively confirmed to appear at the festival incudes Henry Winkler, Lily Tomlin, musician-actor Michael Nesmith (remember the tall guy from The Monkees? ) , Sidney Poitier, and Jane Alexander. Now, before you get all excited, remember that we said these folks have " tentatively committed" to come. You've got to use that in a sentence to understand what it means like, "President Nixon tentatively committed himself him-self to supply all the White House tapes to Congress." Flash! Festival sources say Jack Lemmon will definitely be here. He's a local Utahn who will be selling tickets at the festival's double-decker bus. As for that sweaty-faced guy who makes pictures with Walter Mattau well, who knows? The people who are 99 percent committed to coming include: in-clude: Roger Ebert, nationally-known film critic and co-star of "Sneak Previews"; Joe Dante, who directed "The, ( i( Howling"; Debra Hill, the producer and co-writer of. the i "Halloween" pictures; Robert Redford; Lawrence Schitfef,, director of "The Executioner's Song" ; Mark Rydell, director of such films as "The Cowboys" and "On Golden Pond", and Larry Gelbart, a long-time writer for "MASH" and such films as the recent "Neighbors". If celebrity-spotting isn't enough to dazzle you, the reports of festival films and video sound better every day. The "Director's Showcase" will bring back films like "Body Heat", "Raggedy Man" and "Wolfen". The Showcase will also premiere George Romero's "Knightriders", about a modern-day band of motorcyclists who live by an Arthurian code. A few independent films have been added to the schedule, including one called "Strong-willed Women Subdue and Subjugate Sub-jugate Reptiles." Sounds kinky ! The festival has a wide array of film and video shorts. The subjects include Jim Morrison, Buster Keaton, adolescent models, dinosaurs ("Would you mess with a guy that eats pine trees for lunch?" asks the film), and the illusion of film (in one short, three off-screen voices make contradictory claims about each other.) Next week's issue of The Newspaper will attempt, somehow, to encompass all of this. Incredibly enough, one light note emerged from the tragic loss of the Blue Church fire. Shortly after the firs broke out early Saturday morning, locals could be seen racing from one apartment to another at the lodge warning the residents to get the hell out. When rescuers banged at one door, a voice sang out, "Just a min-ute!" as if being picked up for the junior prom, instead in-stead of escaping a fire. Other side effects of the fire included the accidental creation of ice sculptures (the water from the fire hoses froze) and considerable water leakage into nearby structures like the Memorial Building and Shirley 6'Kelly's insurance office. The Newspaper is located right behind the Blue Church, but we suffered little damage, except for a phone breakdown which forced our ad department to use smoke signals through most of Monday to communicate with city businessmen. About a month ago, we reported that a Utah State Prison production of "Twelve Angry Men" was postponed because the prison was temporarily "destabilized". The play has been rescheduled for Jan. 16, and will be performed free of charge, in the prison auditorium at 8 p.m. We'd like to get serious for a moment, and quote Director Richard Jewkes on the project which is sponsored through the Utah Arts Council Artists-in-Education Program. "While these people are rightly imprisoned for crimes they committed, commit-ted, I think if all kindness and sensitivity is removed from their lives, all they will have left is the beast," said Jewkes. "Once released from prison, they will continue to devour society. They are in prison because they lacked those things in the first place." For further information, contact the Council at 533-5895. . Are there enough celebrities in Park City to go around? Yet another star-studded advisory panel has been formed.-The Kimball Art Center announced this week that a KAC National Advisory Board has been formed with TV star Hal Linden, Utah Governor Scott Matheson, and acclaimed comic actor Harvey Korman, best known for The Carol Burnett Show. Other advisors are Polly Stern, a major force behind Deer Valley; John McMillian, chairman and chief executive officer of-ficer of Northwest Energy; and William Ruder, president of the international PR firm Willi" Ruder Inc. The board, spanning a variety : " professions, will sen fort five years to promote the ct ntt 's activities. ; It is not known for sure how someone like Korman, Carol Burnett's wonderful second banana, would affect operations. However, the center announced that, beginning Monday KAC director Corke Pepper will come to work in a chair- 1 woman's outfit, will answer funny questions from the audience at the opening of each new exhibit, and will perform Tarzan yells each evening as a replacement for tot lacs-defunct lacs-defunct 10 O'clock Whistle.
