Park City has taken a lead role in collaborating to further the vision of a complete community where everyone is included, has equitable access to resources, and feels welcome, safe, and valued.
In partnership with Park City Municipal Corporation, Park City Community Foundation is convening the community to build greater social equity and a more complete community. Park City Community Foundation will mobilize its deep convening experience to bring the community together in a coalition that will perform a social equity self-diagnosis, identify existing social equity resources and gaps, prioritize the most significant and addressable social equity challenges, develop a multiyear strategic plan, and support Park City Municipal Corporation in ensuring it serves a wide range of constituents.
