Park City Municipal Corporation Selects Jason Glidden to Fill New Housing Development Manager Position
PARK CITY, UT (June 5, 2017) – Park City Municipal Corporation is pleased to announce that Jason Glidden, the City’s economic development program manager, has been selected to serve as the City’s new housing development manager. Glidden will transition into his new role effective immediately.
Glidden holds a Master of Business Administration from the University of Montana and has worked for Park City Municipal since 2007. His most recent responsibilities included oversight of the Special Events Department. Glidden lives in Old Town with his wife and two children.
“Jason brings to this role a wealth of private sector and public sector experience. That experience, coupled with his community and interdepartmental relationships, will serve him well,” said City Manager Diane Foster.
Park City Municipal has identified “Affordable, Attainable and Middle-income Housing” as a critical priority and set a goal to achieve a 20-percent affordable housing inventory, which equates to roughly 800 new affordable units by 2026. Current projects under construction include an eight-home development at 1450/1460 Park Avenue and a recently purchased 11-unit building in the City’s Prospector neighborhood. In addition, the first 14 affordable units at Park City Heights have been sold to qualified households.
“We are very fortunate to have Jason joining the Community Development team,” said Anne Laurent, community development director. “Jason’s proven leadership, project management, and contract negotiation skills—coupled with his knowledge of the community—will be valuable assets in the advancement of the City’s affordable housing goals.”
“As a 10-year resident of the Park City community, I’m very excited to help create a positive future for affordability in our town,” said Glidden. “Helping provide permanent housing for families and the workforce that keeps our town running will be one of our most important legacies, and I’m honored to have been chosen to assist with this effort.”
