In 2017, Park City, Kimball Art Center and other partners began the process of creating the Park City Arts and Culture District – an amenity designed specifically for residents, students, local and visiting artists to gather, create and collaborate. Situated on 5.25-acres in the Bonanza Park neighborhood, the Arts and Culture District is envisioned to be a multi-disciplinary space for visual, media and performing arts, immersive learning, culinary experiences and community celebrations – characteristics consistent with the Park City 2020 vision.
Through early study, planning and public feedback, the Arts & Culture District concept has evolved to include the best of Park City’s arts and cultural offerings along with modern community amenities to create a lively, multifaceted destination where residents want to live, work and play.
Early public involvement work was done in 2017 to understand what the community desired in a more defined arts and culture district in Park City. Here’s what the community said:
The project team is seeking feedback from the community about various aspects of the project including programming, public art, food offerings in the food hall, uses for public spaces and types of events.
While in-person engagement is limited due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the project team will still work to collect meaningful input from the community through a variety of virtual and socially distant small group meetings.
The City and its planning team are moving forward cautiously and purposefully to create an amenity that brings value to our community while remaining conservative in projections and programming. While the current schedule supports construction beginning in March of 2021 and project completion in late 2023, the project is progressing in a way that accommodates either a full stop or phased approach.
