POST CARD NOTICE UPDATE

The Planning Department no longer requires Pre-Addressed, stamped envelopes for mailed notices – just an electronic spreadsheet (TEMPLATE) with property address information.

We are transitioning to post card notices mailed by a third-party. Applicants can now submit an excel spreadsheet with the property owner’s name, Summit County parcel number, and mailing address for properties within a certain proximity of the subject application.

For more details, please see Land Management Code § 15-1-12Notice, and § 15-1-21Notice Matrix.

The Planning Department will be transitioning to online applications soon!

To improve customer service and convenience, we will be accepting land use applications online this fall. Please call 435-615-5060 for more information. 

City Council adopts New Wildland Urban Interface Standards

Park City Municipal Corporation has been working to update the Municipal Code and Land Management Code to reflect industry-wide best practices, while taking into account Park City’s unique natural and built environments. City Council enacted Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) standards for the community. These cover topics such as, including but not limited to:  

1) Administration, Inspections, and Enforcement – When WUI standards apply to properties and projects, and when modifications may be granted by City officials. 
2) Home Hardening – Industry-wide practices to reduce threat of structure ignition. 
3) Vegetation Management – Identify ignition zones, prescribed vegetation and fuel modification techniques.  
4) Maintenance/Acceptance of Existing Plans – Depict who is responsible for maintaining a property’s vegetation and structures. 
5) Suggested Firewise Plant List – Suggested resource for community members to use when selecting plants for properties.
6) Landscaping Plans – How WUI standards will affect landscaping in Park City and when modifications may be granted by City officials.
7) Applicability to Sensitive Lands Overlay Zone, Master Planned Developments, Annexations – Put in place regulations for each of these types of developments. 

If you have questions, please reach out to Dave Thacker, Chief Building Official (dave.thacker@parkcity.org or 435-615-5115) or Liz Jackson, Planner (liz.jackson@parkcity.org or 435-6150-5065).
