Restaurant Group in Park City Aids Staff with Gift Card Proceeds

DIVERSIFIED BARS AND RESTAURANTS TO RAISE FUNDS FOR SERVICE STAFF THROUGH GIFT CARD SALES

100% of gift card sale proceeds will be donated to staff at No Name Saloon/The Annex, Boneyard Saloon, Wine Dive, Butcher’s Chop House & Bar

In an immediate effort to support employees in the wake of the Summit County Health Department ban on dine-in service that is effective today, March 15, Diversified Bars and Restaurants (DBR) will donate the proceeds of all gift card sales to its service staff family. Gift cards to DBR-owned establishments in Park City can be purchased online at No Name Saloon/The Annex, Butcher’s Chop House & Bar, and Boneyard Saloon/Wine Dive. Given the loss of work during Park City’s peak spring break season, the loss of income hospitality workers depend on will be a great hardship.

“We understand and accept the closures are essential to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and to protect our staff, customers, and community,” acknowledges Jesse Shetler, Principal Owner of Diversified Bars and Restaurants. “Our family of staff members is legitimately concerned by the detrimental loss of income they typically rely on in March to get them through shoulder season. The outpouring of support from the close-knit Park City community is a massive source of comfort to them. We developed the gift card sale promotion as a vehicle for community members who are eager to help to do so, and we look forward to welcoming customers back when we can safely reopen, undoubtedly with additional protocols in place.”

DBR is currently developing additional methods to support its staff. Meanwhile, the company is educating employees on how to stay healthy, offering guidance on how to work with their lenders and landlords to reduce payments, and providing healthcare-related resources.

“Our town has been through challenging times in the past, including September 11th and the recession that followed, and we always get through them stronger than ever. The generosity that our community is known for is crucial in helping small businesses and hospitality staff overcome this public health crisis,” says Ron Wedig, Managing Partner of DBR. 

Habitat for Humanity Advocates for Utah Affordable Housing in DC

REPRESENTATIVES OF HABITAT FOR HUMANITY OF SUMMIT AND WASATCH COUNTIES ATTENDED HABITAT ON THE HILL RALLY FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

Leadership met with Utah legislators during their visit to discuss local housing needs

Each year, Habitat on the Hill, an event spearheaded by Habitat for Humanity International, unites hundreds of its affiliates in Washington, D.C., to call on Congress to support federal policies and programs that promote access to safe, decent and affordable housing around the country. Habitat for Humanity of Summit & Wasatch Counties had the opportunity join the effort for the first time this month and act as a voice for the local community to impact policy at the state and national levels. Shellie Barrus and Alison Kuhlow traveled to Capitol Hill to bring attention to the fact that one in six U.S. households are paying half or more of their income on housing, an epidemic that is all too familiar to those in the greater Park City community.

Habitat affiliates urged members of Congress to support the Neighborhood Homes Investment Act, a policy priority of Habitat’s “Cost of Home”campaign. This important federal legislation supports the building and rehabilitating of single-family homes in distressed neighborhoods, enabling communities to thrive.

“With the first two of our Silver Creek Village homes under construction and the ever-increasing affordable housing needs in our community, we felt this year made sense to start laying the groundwork for greater advocacy efforts in the future,” says Shellie Barrus. “Lack of affordable housing impacts all of our daily lives – from those who need it to employers to educators to healthcare workers. This was an unprecedented, meaningful opportunity for us to rally on the Hill and meet with our local representatives in a national forum.”

On February 12, Kuhlow and Barrus met with staff from Utah’s Congressional offices to share Summit and Wasatch Counties’ needs for government support that would expand affordable housing.

UDOT DENIES VOTE TO ELIGIBLE VOTERS

UTAH DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION DENIES ELIGIBLE VOTERS THE RIGHT TO VOTE ON PROPOSED I-80 NOISE WALL IN SUMMIT COUNTY

Local Activist Group Continues Its Appeals to UDOT and Governor Herbert

The sound wall along I-80 in Summit County between Parley’s Summit and Jeremy Ranch

As the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) moves forward on plans for its proposed, 3,200-foot long sound wall on I-80 from Parley’s Summit to Jeremy Ranch, homeowners excluded from the balloting process are now petitioning Governor Herbert. Residents of Jeremy Pointe were denied the right to vote despite being in closer proximity to the highway than the homeowners behind the Jeremy Ranch Golf & Country Club who were invited to cast votes. According to UDOT, the existing noise level for some of these homes is as high as 70 dBA, well above the UDOT noise abatement criteria (NAC) of 66 dBA.

“It is disappointing enough that UDOT has ignored the concerns of the majority of the residents in the area, but it is a violation of state law to deny eligible voters their right to vote,” explains Tom Farkas, one of the founding members of Citizens Against the Wall. “Not only has UDOT committed this egregious violation, but they did so in an arbitrary and capricious manner.”

This right to vote is in complete accordance with UDOT’s policy requirements, which provides:

UDOT Noise Policy C.2.c.1, Balloting b) “Receptors that border or that are directly adjacent, or both, to the end of a proposed noise wall that are not, by definition, benefited by the wall, will be allowed to cast a ballot.”

Dan Bass, President of the Jeremy Pointe Homeowners Association and a founding member of CATW, says, “UDOT should abide by its own rules given the other residents who voted were required to do so. We have suggested alternative, more effective methods of noise mitigation to UDOT, but they are proceeding with the project, taking down wildlife fencing, and have given no indication that any other noise measures will be used.”

The proposed noise barrier would be 17 to 20 feet in height and approximately 3,200 feet long, which would impact the views of many while detracting from the scenic beauty and open space visitors and locals have long appreciated when entering Summit County.

UDOT balloted only two-dozen Jeremy Ranch homeowners, while the greater community, including these 24 residents, would be adversely impacted by a permanent visual stain on the area’s natural beauty.

Members of CATW are available for media comment. Please contact Hilary Reiter at Redhead Marketing & PR to schedule interviews, Hilary@redheadmarketingpr.com or 435.901.2071.

Knitting and Campaigning

What do a high-end yarn boutique and a political campaign have in common? Very little, except that they are two of Redhead Marketing & PR’s newest clients. We are pleased to be handling the marketing for Wasatch & Wool, opening late summer at Redstone in Park City and David Brickey, the Republican candidate running for reelection as Summit County Attorney in November.

Brickey, as he is amicably known amongst his peers and colleagues, has served as Summit County Utah Attorney for 10 years. A moderate Republican, he was first appointed to this office by a mostly Democratic County Council. Redhead will be working to conceive a campaign brand in addition to developing the website and other campaign collateral. We will also manage grassroots marketing efforts throughout the county to elevate awareness, raise funds and get out the vote. David Brickey is the fifth political candidate to engage Redhead Marketing & PR since the company was founded in 2010. Our other political highlights include managing the successful campaigns and marketing efforts for Park City Mayor Dana Williams in 2009 and his successor, Jack Thomas in 2013. We love the energy and intensity of working on political campaigns!

Wasatch & Wool will occupy the space that once housed the CJ Sport boutique at the Redstone shopping center at Park City’s Kimball Junction. The yarn boutique will offer an intimate, welcoming retail experience with high-quality, natural yarns at a variety of price points. With the recent resurgence of knitting as a hobby for all ages, the owner seeks to foster a local knitting community with workshops and social gatherings for knitters. Park City’s only yarn store, Wasatch & Wool is sure to appeal to both locals and visitors with a passion for knitting and creating special knitted products with yarns of superior quality. Redhead Marketing & PR is beginning work on branding, logo development and website design. We will manage additional public relations and marketing collateral needs as well.
