Sustainable Tourism Plan 

 

Developed in the spring of 2022, the Sustainable Tourism Plan for Park City and Summit County intends to create a future where we consider community and environmental benefits with the same weight as economic benefits, resulting in a thriving community and destination. The plan was developed in collaboration with diverse community stakeholders to create a long-range sustainable destination plan with these principles in mind: 

Stewardship Principles 

  1. Value and respect the health of our local environment and natural resources 
  2. Foster our local spirit, our values, our sense of place, and the wellbeing of our community—residents, employers, employees, and visitors alike 
  3. Ensure that benefits of the visitor economy are shared equitably by people of all races, ages, gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities, income levels, and by Summit County’s communities 
  4. Enable Summit County’s tourism industry to lead by example, championing tourism’s benefits, mitigating its impacts, and harnessing its regenerative power for the community and the environment  
  5. Be bold, creative, and action-focused, supporting transparency and measurable outcomes
