City Council hosts public hearing on the street

Posted by mr.Lou (Texas to, Japan) on 27 September 2013 in Documentary & Street.

Concerned residents addressed Salt Lake City Council members on September 28, 2013, on the sidewalk of the Sugar House Monument Plaza during a public hearing regarding the Sugar House Circulation and Streetscape Amenities Plan. The ordinance includes plans for expanded bike lanes, public transportation stops, and the closing of the right-turn lane where the meeting was being hosted.

Andrew Bornstein, is shown here, expressing the opinion that a walking neighborhood increases property value and promotes community. Opposing and supporting views were expressed in equal measure throughout the meeting, and one council member closed by saying this unprecedented outdoor forum was a great success.
