Press Release – February 9, 2017
Join Salt Lake City and South Salt Lake communities to discuss a vision for the State Street corridor
Salt Lake City and South Salt Lake residents, employees, students, business owners and area stakeholders are invited to a public workshop and discussion on the future of the State Street corridor.
This hands-on design workshop will kick-off the Life on State Implementation Plan project. Community members will work side-by-side with city planners, police officers, street designers and neighbors to share their ideas for improvements along the State Street. The process is designed to identify short- and long-term strategies to address safety and security, create a sense of place, improve connectivity, and drive economic prosperity on this vital urban thoroughfare.
The Life on State Implementation Plan will study roadway changes and development opportunities for the State Street corridor with the goal of making the roadway a model for sustainable street design, urban design and planning for the region and Utah. It will build on the 2010 Life on State Vision that imagined State Street as Utah’s “great street” from the state Capitol to the city of Draper.
The boundaries of the Life on State Implementation Plan study area are from North Temple to 3300 South and from 300 West to 200 East.
The project is a collaboration of Salt Lake City, South Salt Lake, Salt Lake County, Utah Transit Authority (UTA) and Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) and is funded through the Transportation and Land Use Connection, a joint partnership program administered by the Wasatch Front Regional Council.
WHAT: Life on State Implementation Plan Public Workshop
WHEN: Thursday, February 9th, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
WHERE: Salt Lake Community College Multipurpose Room, 1575 S. State Street, Salt Lake City
