SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Officials from Park City and Summit County are fighting a proposal by the U.S. Air Force to build a mega-resort on 27 acres at Quinn's Junction.

A bill passed by the Utah Legislature earlier this month will allow Hill Air Force Base and a private developer to circumvent local ordinances to build the resort.

County and city officials have been to Washington, D.C., and to Utah's Capitol Hill to talk to elected officials about the proposal.

The Air Force has long wanted a recreation facility in the area. The resort proposal includes an 800-room hotel and a movie production studio.

Park City Mayor Dana Williams says the area is happy to welcome the military, but has concerns about the scope of the project.
