Staffers recommended the County Council consider authorizing County Manager Tom Fisher to exercise the right of first refusal and work with Mountainlands Community Housing Trust to acquire the units and use the county’s fees developers have paid instead of building affordable housing to reduce the resale price, according to a report. The other option available was to resell the units at market value. County Council member Chris Robinson supported reselling the units and reinvesting the money in building affordable housing in another location. Fisher has the authority to make purchases on behalf of the county. However, the discussion was intended for receiving the consent of the elected officials. The County Council ultimately asked Fisher to purchase the one unit that is currently available and exploring prices for the other units.

It doesn’t say that we need more condos. That’s not what Kimball Junction needs. These things are really important to so many people. It’s a community request. It’s not about me. It’s truly we.” Preserve the Newpark Plaza, LLC’s, appeal cited concerns about the architectural design of the building, including the height and layout of the project as a residential building. Andrew Blonquist, an attorney representing the group, said residential units don’t generally belong in the middle of a commercial plaza. “Having residential doors enter on the street right next to commercial doors, having garage doors exit right into a park is problematic. Unless, there’s vested property rights,” he said. “Those vested property rights are two and three-story buildings.” Blonquist argued that residential units belong on the second floor of buildings in the Newpark Town Center, above commercial spaces. He said that is what creates a town center. Blonquist and Eggleton claimed Newpark’s development agreement with the County Courthouse has clauses specifying where residential units belong.

We will be putting together some type of agreement with them on purchasing the available unit.” was an uptick in the middle of June that has not slowed down. He said events like the Psicobloc climbing competition and the Flying Ace All-Star Aerial Show every weekend during the summer attract both Parkites and people living in the surrounding area. Ian Hartley, manager of White Pine Touring, said the town seems to be busier this summer than in the past. “It had a little bit of a slow start, but it picked up really well and it looks like business is going to carry all the way through into the fall,” he said. Malone said he has heard positive things from the business community that restaurant sales, concert tickets and attendance at major events have all been high this year. mission overlooked and “essentially ignored” the plans for the area. “There were a lot of questions from commissioners about what the rights are and what is allowed and what is permissible,” Eggleton said. “It put a lot of focus on sentiment around the market condition clause and flexibility. Height was the only architectural guideline that was mentioned and enforced.” Justin Keys, an attorney representing developers Ryan and Matthew Crandall, partners of Crandall Capital, said the market-conditions clause did provide flexibility for property owners to design their projects based on current conditions, which he said includes mixing residential and commercial units. The county attorney’s office maintains Fisher did not err in his decision to approve the building’s final design. The County Council agreed after more than two hours of discussion to continue the review of the appeal at a meeting scheduled on Aug. 22. County Council member Chris Robinson appeared ready to make a motion. However, County Council members Kim Carson, Roger Armstrong and Glenn Wright expressed a desire to gather more information before making a final decision. County Council member Doug Clyde left the discussion early. “Our main area of concern is that it is a fairly flexibly written development agreement,” Carson said. “However, we aren’t clear on any solid restrictions for the area designated as the main street.” A fence currently surrounds the project site as the Crandalls have secured a permit to begin installing the utilities. They intend to break ground this month, but still need to obtain a building permit. Sat/Sun/Mon/Tues, August 11-14, 2018 Community farmer’s market returns soon Government benefits such as SNAP and EBT accepted ANGELIQUE MCNAUGHTON The Park Record Summit County residents will soon have another place to purchase fresh, locally grown food. The Summit County Community Market is set to return this week, with local growers offering fresh produce, as well as cooking demonstrations. It will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 28 and Sept. 11 in the parking lot of Park City Hospital from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Summit County Health Department in 2017 first partnered with the Sheriff’s Office and other growers, such as Summit Community Gardens and Utah State University Extension, to create the farmer’s market and provide fresh produce for low-income families. Park City Hospital, Urban Food Connections of Utah and the Utah Department of Health are also participating this year. The community market is the only local farmer’s market that accepts government benefits such as electronic benefits transfer (EBT) and supplemental nutrition assistance program (SNAP). There are approximately 700 SNAP recipients in Summit County, according to Shelley Worley, director of health promotion at the Health Department. She said 42 percent of people who attended the market in 2017 used their double up food bucks (DUFB) to purchase the produce, with 89 percent becoming returning customers. DUFB is a program through the Utah Department of Health that matches the value of SNAP. “It just gives them more access to fresh produce,” she said. “It’s a win-win for us. Low-income families will eat healthier foods and will be able to learn about seasonal produce. But, it’s not just for low-income families. This also benefits the farmer because the dollars stay with the local economy.” The farmer’s market was created as part of the Health Department’s efforts to provide another option for families to purchase locally grown food. The partnerships have helped localize the market.

Inflammation also thickens airways and tissues that facilitate the exchange of oxygen, which results in coughing and shortness of breath and causes a buildup of fluid in the lungs. What about the cyclists? As for the Tour of Utah riders, Woodward wasn’t particularly concerned. “We don’t worry too much about the short-term effects having a permanent effect on their health,” he said. While they may feel the consequences of breathing in large amounts of particulate-laden air, in the form of a cough or sore throat, he said that the elite cyclists won’t suffer any long-term effects. “Many of these high performance athletes know very well if they already have a propensity to airway conditions like asthma, and they will have a plan on how to manage that,” he said. Even though the athletes are inhal- Office and jail to allow inmates to grow a variety of produce for the markets. Approved inmates are also allowed to attend the markets to personally sell the produce. Kacey Bates, corrections sergeant with the Sheriff’s Office, said the inmates are looking forward to participating again this year. However, a recent issue with the garden is preventing them from attending the first two markets. “But, they are excited to give back to the community and provide things that they are working hard with,” she said. “Our garden does a lot of things. It provides the inmates with education and with a sense of satisfaction in giving back. It allows them to learn and grow while they are incarcerated.” Jeni Jones, who works in public relations at the Park City Hospital, said the partnership with the Health Department will allow the market to offer more than produce, such as a lunch special. Hospital staff will be offering health screenings for depression, blood pressure and diabetes from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. Anyone who participates will be offered a $10 produce gift card that can be used at local grocery stores. Car seat checkpoints will also be held from 1 until 4 p.m. “I think it’s a wonderful thing that the community and Health Department are doing,” Jones said. “The fact that they are offering EBT cards-- I just think it is really addressing a need in the community. It is also central to our goal to promote the healthiest lifestyle as possible. We would love to see it to be successful.” Staffers from the Utah State University Extension Office will be providing cooking demonstrations and the Summit County Library book mobile will be available on Aug. 28 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Worley said the Health Department tried to respond to feedback from customers attending last year’s markets by providing longer hours and more vendors. “We are really trying to touch different avenues of education, but really we’re just trying to make the connection between food and health and how important it is to eat fresh food on a regular basis,” Worley said. “It promotes your physical and mental health, and we want to make that connection for people and make it visual.” ing and exhaling great volumes of air, Woodward said they are at a much lower risk of injury than people who live with poor air quality daily. “It doesn’t have the long-term effects that we are more worried about from things like secondhand (tobacco) smoke, industrial smoke,” he said of competing in the week-long race. “Generally, people can navigate the shortterm things, and we hope people realize (the smoky Park City air) is a short-term (phenomenon), and we will get back to our pristine air.” Outside or inside? Woodward said a clean, air conditioned building will usually have better air quality than the outdoors. But that doesn’t mean the indoors always have cleaner air. The Environmental Protection Agency hosts a section on its website devoted to “The Inside Story,” which discusses “a growing body of research” suggesting that indoor air quality can be worse than outdoor air quality. It lists indoor tobacco smoke, radon, poorly cleaned fabrics like carpets to bedding, pets, glues and solvents used in building materials, pesticides, asbestos and lead, among others, as detrimental to indoor air quality.
