According to an article by Jay Hamburger in the Park Record on November 7, 2018, the group readying for the possibility of Salt Lake City and the wider Winter Olympic region mounting a bid for another games have submitted materials to the United States Olympic Committee outlining early concepts illustrating how a future Olympics could be staged.
Originally, the three contenders for the US bid were Reno-Tahoe area of California and Nevada, Salt Lake City and Denver. The Reno-Tahoe area has backed out and USOC members will be visiting Salt Lake and Denver this month.
“It’s finally go time. It’s time for us to make the case that Utah is ready to host a future Winter Olympic games,” said Colin Hilton, a member of the Salt Lake Executive Committee for the Games and the president and CEO of the Utah Olympic Legacy Foundation
Our take on it is we are fulfilling the role of legacy like no other place,” Hilton said.
The foundation Hilton leads oversees the Utah Olympic Park in the Snyderville Basin, the Utah Olympic Oval in Kearns and the Soldier Hollow Nordic Center in Wasatch County. Each of the locations was an Olympic venue in 2002.
The Park City area will play a critical role in the materials that are submitted to the United States Olympic Committee. The Park City area hosted upward of half of the events during the games in 2002 and is expected to have a similar role in the blueprints for a future Olympics.on Wednesday
Park City Mountain Resort, Deer Valley Resort and the Utah Olympic Park are seen as important competition venues in a games map. The Utah Olympic Park would host the sliding sports and ski jumping, the same events held there in 2002. The February report provided a concept map of the venues that also called for Park City Mountain Resort to host snowboarding and freestyle skiing events and Deer Valley Resort to host freestyle skiing and alpine skiing events.
UPDATE: According to an article in The Salt Lake Tribune by Christopher Kamrani, on Wednesday five USOC members spent twelve hours in Utah. Utah officials showed off the 2002 Olympic venues still as active as ever, still part of respective World Cup and World Championship calendars each winter. The group stopped in Park City to check out the Utah Olympic Park, home to the ski jumps and bobsled, skeleton and luge track. One of the stops in the afternoon included Rice-Eccles Stadium, where just hours earlier, the University of Utah held a news conference to announce progress toward an $80 million bond for expansion of the stadium that hosted the 2002 Opening and Closing ceremonies.
A report from Utah officials earlier this year stated that another Olympics here would cost around $1.29 billion — less than the 2002 Olympics. Gov. Gary Herbert said Wednesday that the Games would involve public as well as private funding. Recent polls taken statewide had projections that as high as 89 percent of Utahns would support another Olympics in Utah.
Released October 31st, 2018 by The Park City Board of REALTORS®.
PARK CITY, UTAH — At the end of the third quarter of 2018, housing statistics revealed slowing demand and an increase in median sales price. Year-over-year, the number of single-family home sales in the Greater Park City Area decreased by 4.5%, while the condominium sector was down 9% compared to last year’s numbers, as reported by the Park City Board of REALTORS®.
Single-Family Home Sales
The number of single-family home sales within the City Limits was relatively flat (off less than 2%) and the median price of $1.95 M remained the same to 12 months ago. By neighborhood, Old Town had the highest number of sales – up 10%, while there were 30% fewer sales in Park Meadows.
The median sales price climbed to $1.2 M – up 22% in the Snyderville Basin, and although there was a slight decrease in the number of sold homes, the Basin saw more than twice the number of sales than the City Limits. In Silver Creek sales were up 53% and up 43% in median sales price – reaching $1.2 M. By neighborhood, Promontory had the highest number of sales, with 63 sold homes in the last 12 months. Activity in the Tuhaye / Hideout area had a sizable increase in the number of sales with a 28% median price increase – reaching $1.06 M.
Sales in the Heber Valley continued at a strong pace, with nearly one sale a day, and a 27% median price increase to $525,000. There were nearly twice as many homes sold in Red Ledges compared to last year, with a median sales price of $1.17 M. Midway continued to thrive with 107 closed sales and a 14% median price increase over last year reaching $573,000.
“New growth continues to move eastward and southward to areas that still have developable land. The dramatic rise in construction costs is fueling the median sales price increases seen in the outlying areas, but active listings are still well below in-town Park City prices. The introduction of new developments will enhance this trend for the foreseeable future. As areas develop, much of what we now consider as “outlying areas” will feel like another extension of town,” said Park City Board of REALTORS® President, Todd Anderson.
In the Kamas Valley, the number of sales decreased 8%, though the median price climbed 21% reaching $440,000. The number of sales in the Wanship, Hoytsville, Coalville, Echo, & Henefer areas dropped, while the median price increased 20% to $427,000.
Condominium & Townhome Sales
Year over year, the number of condo sales within the City Limits was down 5% but up 8% in median price to
$820,000. The Snyderville Basin reported essentially the same number of sales as last year with 291 units sold and saw a median price increase to $525,000.
Anderson commented, “The difference between these two larger areas may be attributed to the completion of localized developments versus the reserved or pending status of to-be-built product. Expect to see continued large fluctuations as projects are completed. Canyons Village and Deer Mountain both have the potential for enough new construction to influence future statistics in our market area.”
The number of closed sales dropped 25% in the Jordanelle, possibly due to lack of inventory, as new construction projects in this area have been completed and sold leading to fewer units available, but there was an 18% increase in median price.
Vacant Land Sales
Park City Limits saw 13 more lot sales than last year and a 25% median price increase to just over $1M. By neighborhood, Promontory had the highest number of land sales within the Basin with 82, and the median price continued its upward climb reaching $450,000. Canyons Village saw increased sales activity and a 28% median price increase to $2.37 M.
Historically, July and August are the months with the highest level of inventory for homes and condos in the Wasatch Back, but the current trend of sales volume is changing and we are seeing a continued upward tick of inventory which has not been seen for some time. This trend may signal a coming price change, although in some of the most desirable neighborhoods, a shortfall of for-sale properties will be scarce and the median prices will remain strong.
It is not too soon to start planning your Deer Valley visit for the 2018/2019 ski season, especially lodging, ski lessons and restaurant reservations during the holidays.
