KAYSVILLE - a proposed military hotel near Park City will be discussed by the Military Infrastructure Development Agency (MIDA) in a meeting Sept. 11 at 3 p.m.
Such a facility has been sought for many years in that area.
The board will meet at the Davis Business Alliance building adjacent to the Davis Applied Technology College.
While planning is still in preliminary stages, MIDA Chair Stuart Adams said a site off of the Mayflower I-80 exit by Jordanelle Reservoir is being considered.
“It’s a great location, has the potential for both summer and winter sports and recreation, actually anytime,” Adams said.
Stan Castleton, who built the St. Regis Hotel in Deer Valley, has been chosen by the military to build the hotel. He would be responsible for purchasing land for the facility, Adams said.
Wadman Construction has been chosen as project contractor.
Specifics on how much land, building size and other details have yet to be decided, he said.
A project area plan must be prepared, including boundaries needed for the hotel, the Layton state senator said.
Public hearings have been held and the board is coordinating planning efforts with Wasatch County officials, Adams said.
“I think people are just making sure we maintain the planning efforts that Wasatch County has already gone through, with some guidelines and standards they would like to uphold. Most of the property owners are supportive,” he said.
The military has sought a new recreational facility since its former building at Snowbasin ski resort was traded for ground in Park City.
The Park City site, known as Red Maple and owned by the Air Force, potentially could be traded for the new property, Adams said.
Park City officials have previously said they wanted to retain Red Maple as open space.
About two years ago, a site at The Canyons Ski Resort in Park City was being considered for the hotel.
However, Adams said military officials ultimately decided on a Wasatch County site.
