Park City Municipal Seeks Residents to ‘Help Shape Your City’ 

City Looking to Fill Vacancies on Planning-related Boards and Commissions  

Park City, Utah – Park City Municipal seeks candidates to help support three community boards and commissions that play a key role in shaping the future of Park City. Interested residents can apply for vacancies on the Planning Commission, Historic Preservation Board, and the Board of Adjustment via the City’s website here. 

“These impactful positions represent an exciting opportunity for residents to serve their community while helping ensure that Park City’s future remains sustainable, livable, and unique,” said Mayor Nann Worel. 

Boards and Commissions roles: 

Planning Commission – Serves as a non-political and pivotal, long-range planning body for Park City including general plan review, annexation review, appeals of staff decisions, termination of inactive applications, and sensitive land review. 

Historic Preservation Board – Charged with preserving and encouraging design preferences that reflect Park City's mining heritage according to the Land Management Code and the Historic District Design Guidelines.   

Board of Adjustment – Hears and decides appeals on zoning decisions. The board also hears appeals and makes determinations on modifications of non-conforming uses or non-complying status. 

A “Help Shape Your City” Workshop will be held on June 6 at 5:30-7:00 p.m. in the Park City Library and on Zoom, where applicants and interested parties can learn more about the positions’ responsibilities and requirements.

Dry Cleaning

Dry cleaning is not considered an environmentally friendly practice, because of the widespread use of the chemical perchloroethylene (also called perc). According to the Occidental College’s Pollution Prevention Center, 80 percent of the more than 35,000 dry cleaners in the US still use this harmful chemical, which is used as a solvent in the dry cleaning process. Studies have shown that workers exposed to perc routinely either through inhalation or skin contact are at a much higher risk for adverse health affects. Perc has been linked to increased risks of bladder, esophageal, and cervical cancer, eye, nose, throat and skin irritation, and reduced fertility, among other effects.

Even bringing clothes cleaned with perc back to your home exposes you to the dangerous chemical, because once home and out of the bag, the toxin is released into the air. Because of this having your closed cleaned in the conventional manner is not advised. Read below for information on alternatives to conventional dry cleaning and tips for greener dry cleaning.
