The Best City For Retirement

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Aug 01, 2018

According to Business Insider, Salt Lake City is one of the top three places in the country to retire in which makes Park City also very attractive. Retirement doesn't have to mean moving away from a city you love or giving up the cultural opportunities bigger metros provide that can make your retirement years golden. Aging in place is a growing phenomenon, as many seniors plan to stay in their own homes and remain active members of their communities rather than move elsewhere. But other retirees may still feel the urge for new scenery and a new zip code, whether to lower their cost of living as they adjust to life on a fixed income, or to find a new home that better fits their lifestyle or health care needs.

MagnifyMoney decided to look at which of the 50 largest metros offer the best opportunities for senior citizens in terms of lifestyle, cost of living, medical care and — when the time comes — both in-home and residential assisted care.

Salt Lake City seems to have the most engaged senior community, with 40.3% of people over the age of 55 volunteering, far in excess of the 24.7% average among the 50 metros we reviewed. Residents in the metro are also a bit more active than many other places, and at 27.6%, the metro has the lowest rate of preventable hospital stays. That may explain why, at $8,914, the average healthcare cost per Medicare patient is lower than the $9,627 average for the 50 metros. The metro could use a boost in their assisted care and quality availability, earning a score of 35.4, which is lower than the average of all metros we reviewed. Interestingly, Salt Lake City does not appear to be a draw for seniors, as only 1.5% of them moved there from elsewhere. To read the entire article click here.

Not retiring yet, well Salt Lake City is also one of the top 5 Cities Millennials are Flocking To - There are several places in the U.S. where millennials can be found due to the high employment rates and beautiful settings. For adults who are in their 20s and 30s, there are several places where it's smart to invest. When you're looking to move, these are a few cities that millennials are flocking to throughout the country. Salt Lake City takes spot #1! The high job growth in Salt Lake City makes it a desirable place for young adults to live as they look to obtain steady employment. The city is affordable to live in and has a median home price of $233,000 with job growth of 2.4 percent. Salt Lake City also has a lower unemployment rate compared to other markets throughout the U.S. with 2.9 percent, which is below the national average by a few points.

Now, switching gears - do you enjoy beer? Park City Magazine has a great article about the upcoming beer events happening in our area.

Hops on the Hill - Nothing quite says summer like Hops on the Hill at the Stein Eriksen Lodge. This annual 7-week series pairs scrumptious bites conjured up by Chef Zane Holmquist and his team together with favorite beers from a variety of Utah craft breweries. Add a the magnificent view from the deck of the Stein and an outdoor concert from a local band and you’ve just created the perfect summer evening. This year’s series kicked off on July 17 and will continue every Tuesday through August 28. Pairings are $20 for food, $20 for beer and will be served on the deck from 6-7:30 p.m. Additional a la carte grill and beverages available for purchase.

The local breweries and bands remaining in this year's series include:

  • Aug 7: Melvin Brewing & 2 Row Brewery; Band: Fastback
  • Aug 14: Red Rock Brewing & Proper Brewing Co.; Band: The Lazlos
  • Aug 21: Wasatch Brewery & Bonneville Brewery; Band: Utah County Swillers
  • Aug 28: Mad Fritz Beer & Mountain West Cidery
 

Oktoberfest at Snowbird - So you couldn’t make it to Munich for the granddaddy of all beer festivals? Not to worry, grab your lederhosen head over the canyon from Park City to Snowbird for one of the best Oktoberfests this side of the Mississippi. Featuring alp horns, live music, a beard contest, music, games, food, and, of course, a never-ending flow of beer, this celebration of German culture is a perfect weekend outing the whole family can enjoy. This year’s festival kicks off on August 18 and will be held every Saturday and Sunday through October 21, 2018, including Labor Day Monday.

World’s Longest Shot Ski - For the last couple of years Park City and Breckenridge, CO have been competing to hold the record for the world’s longest shot ski. Creating a shot ski that takes up the greater part of Main Street is no small task, but it’s well worth it considering all the proceeds from ticket sales go to charity. The lively affair, hosted by the local rotary club, takes place in October (this year’s date TBA).

The Park City School District

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Apr 04, 2018

The Park City School district is back in the news with MSN Money as the Best School District in the state of Utah. Few public services in the United States contain such stark differences in quality as the public education system. While there are several school districts that spend more than $50,000 per student on education each year, in other districts education expenditures amount to less than $2,000 per student.

That difference in spending contributes to major disparities in student outcomes throughout the country. The majority of a school’s budget is spent on staff and teacher salaries. A school that is able to attract the best teachers can give their students a major advantage. Those advantages are often the greatest in the most affluent parts of the country. Approximately 44% of all school funding in the United States comes from local sources such as property tax. As a result, most of the highest quality school districts are in wealthy counties where a majority of households make more than double that of the typical American household.

To determine the best school district in every state, 24/7 Wall St. developed an index based on various measures of child poverty, per-pupil expenditure, graduation rate, teachers per student, the percentage of adults with a bachelor’s degree, preschool enrollment, and AP enrollment.

Best school district: Park City School District - Location: Summit County

Per student spending: $11,238 (total enrollment: 4,872) with a High school graduation rate: 89.1%

Adults with a bachelor's degree: 63.0%

Looking for something fun to do - here are some upcoming events.

4/5 - 4/7: Thin Air Innovation Festival, Park City

4/6 - 6/23: Utah Warrior Rugby, Sandy

4/6: Toby Keith with Ned LeDoux, Salt Lake City

4/7: OK GO, Park City

4/7: 22nd Annual Pond Skimming Competition, Park City Mountain

4/11 - 4/27: Hamilton - An American Musical, Salt Lake City

A Fresh Start to Spring

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Mar 27, 2018

We are always looking to share the latest in news regarding our lovely town and the state of Utah. This week inman recently posted The Best US cities for A fresh Start and Salt Lake City makes the top ten. If you’ve ever had to move to another city for a job, you’ll know just how difficult relocating your life can be. But some parts of the country may be better suited for a fresh start — places like Buffalo, New York; Minneapolis; Salt Lake City; and Austin, Texas; are among some of the most receptive, a new study by online lending exchange LendingTree indicates.

To come to these findings, the study’s authors looked at eight elements that would impact a person’s launch in a new city, including the cost of housing, median income and rates of health insurance coverage at 50 of the largest metropolitan areas in the U.S. To calculate a resident’s chances of landing a good job, the study also examined the number of adults between 35 and 64 who are single, enrolled in school and covered by some form of health insurance along with additional factors including employment, median income and school enrollment.

Spring is here and now it is time to start planning your summer activities by adding the Deer Valley concert line-up to your calendar. Now in its 15 year, the festival's six-week summer schedule starts on June 30 with a Patriotic Celebration featuring vocalist Rachel Potter that will include 13 full orchestra concerts at the Snow Park Amphitheater, as well as four chamber concerts at St. Mary's Catholic Church that begins on July 11 with Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5 featuring violinist Kathryn Eberle.

Park City Mountain is ready to slide into their 11th annual Spring Grüv, a 16-day event that features live music, family-friendly activities, entertainers and the 22nd edition of the resort's annual pond skimming contest - the fun begins March 24th.

As we work our way through the annual mud season here are 13 Easy Spring Upgrades You Can Do in A Weekend. With thoughts turning to warmer weather this seemed like a good time to round up a few little projects you can do to improve your backyard, or just add a little curb appeal to your home. Projects range from painting your front door and porch steps to organizing the garage and adding a fire pit to your patio area.

The Park City Transit System

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Jun 28, 2017

Park City TransitThe Park City Convention & Visitors Bureau have shared in detail the three new elements that have been added to the Transit System in Park City this month, you will now be able to catch a bus along one of the following brand-new or expanded routes now:

Electric Xpress: On June 23, Utah’s first zero-emission, battery-electric bus fleet started traveling up and down SR224. The Xpress route provides service every 10 minutes from early morning to midnight, seven days a week. Noise from the six-bus electric fleet will be negligible (clocking in at only 57 decibels) and will reduce operating costs to just $.19 a mile: the fuel efficiency of each bus is an impressive 21.4 miles per gas gallon equivalent. By limiting stops to primary origins and destinations, the travel time between the two transit centers will be a speedy seven minutes!

The Electric Xpress visits the Kimball Junction Transit Center 1899, West Ute Boulevard

PC/SLC Connect Expansion: On June 26, bus service between Park City and Salt Lake doubled from 8-to-16 total daily runs. There are 4 morning, 1 midday, and 3 evening runs in each direction. “This route enhancement was a high priority among projects funded by the sales tax initiatives,” said Transportation Planning Manager Alfred Knotts. “Reducing trips to and from Salt Lake also ties directly into our City’s climate goals.” Route 902 buses, as they are known, will now terminate at the Kimball Junction Transit Center, rather than the Old Town Transit Center. Passengers can disembark at Kimball Junction and catch the new Electric Xpress down SR224. “The Electric Xpress will work hand in glove with the PC-SLC Connect to bring people up the mountain and into downtown Park City more frequently and rapidly,” said Public Works Director Blake Fonnesbeck. While a transfer is necessary, this shortened route helps offset the increased cost of doubling the number of routes from the Salt Lake Valley. Learn more at the Route 902 website.

Kamas Commuter Route: On June 26, the first of several transit connections from eastern Summit County rolled out. Kamas residents are now able to catch the bus adjacent to Volkers Bakery. With quick service options to Quinn's Junction, Kimball Junction Transit Center, and Park City Transit Center, the commute from Kamas will be fast, easy, and economical.

Riders who use the Kamas Commuter Route or PC/SLC Connect Expansion will also have access to a “Guaranteed Ride Home” program that provides passengers transportation in the event of an emergency or other unforeseen circumstance.

These new programs will also provide alternative solutions once the City’s parking management system comes online in early December. “As people may know, we will start charging for parking in Old Town in December,” said Parking Manager Kenzie Coulson. “But the last thing we want to do is leave people stranded or feeling like they do not have a safe alternative to get back home or to their car parked offsite. So we are making sure to put in place a whole host of options before the paid parking piece is implemented.

A Record Season

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Apr 05, 2017

BHHS April 2017RECAPPING A RECORD SEASON - 2017 was one for the books. Consistent powder storms flurried down all season, leading to deep bases at the resorts and several days of over-the-head snow for skiers and boarders. All 14 Utah resorts made the most of the winter, and skier visits are up across the state. Park City in particular celebrated the precipitation with locals and visitors alike coming off the slopes with grins and high-fives. Both Park City Mountain and Deer Valley report the highest number of ticket sales...ever. As the town continues to strategize around responsible growth, we're glad folks from around the world came here to taste our found-nowhere-else lifestyle.

The winding down of the ski season brings celebrations of all sorts, including the annual pond skimming contest, Spring Gruv concert series, and resort Easter hunts. Between the Eccles Center, Egyptian Theatre, and Ballet West, it's also a great time to be a culture vulture. Here are some of the upcoming events not to be missed. BHHS SeasonSpring Gruv 4/2-4/9
