The expansion — set to start construction in 2015, pending approval from Park City’s planning commission — will nearly double the center’s existing space, from 15,000 square feet to 30,000 square feet, at the center’s home at the corner of Main Street and Heber Avenue. “It will be a real draw to Main Street, as Park City becomes more and more of a year-round ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
