Come learn about the process a new community garden goes through to get approved. We’re also looking for your input what you would like included in the garden design. Finally, we’ll discuss potential impacts it could bring to the neighborhood.
Salt Lake City’s Transportation Division, along with several partner organizations, invite residents and area stakeholders to meet and discuss the future of the Foothill Drive corridor at an open house to be held Thursday, March 31, at 5 pm located at Hillside Middle School, 1825 Nevada Street in Salt Lake City.
The open house marks the beginning of Foothill Drive Implementation Strategy, which will identify short term and long-term priorities to address traffic congestion, improve neighborhood connections, enhance safety, and provide transportation options.
Foothill Drive has long served as a vital urban thoroughfare linking I-80, I-215, and Parley’s Way at the City’s Southeastern border to the Foothill Cultural District and the University of Utah, and eventually Downtown via 500/400 South.
The street also serves as a neighbor commercial corridor and regular users have expressed interest in enhancing the safety, efficiency and aesthetics of the corridor for pedestrians, cyclists, drivers and transit riders.
To learn more about the project and to share your ideas, visit the project website at www.foothilldrive.org, email the project team at firstname.lastname@example.org, join us at the upcoming open house or call the project hotline at 801-535-7130 to provide comment.

Salt Lake City recognizes the important role community vegetable gardens play in supporting our local food system, and has made it a goal to support gardens.
In order to help facilitate the development of new gardens, the City has identified City-owned or managed parcels located on properties with access to a waterline and other conditions conducive to creating a successful and sustainable community garden.
Salt Lake City is seeking public input on the creation of a new, citywide signage system for public spaces and invites residents to an open house event on Thursday, January 23rd from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the Black Box Theatre at the Sorenson Unity Center, 1383 S. 900 West.
Salt Lake City is home to one of the most diverse parks and open space systems in the nation.
From steep foothills to parkway trails tracing the Jordan River, the City’s open spaces help define the community’s quality of life.
In order to enhance the user experience and stewardship of these spaces, Landmark Design, Inc. was selected to lead planning and design efforts toward the creation of a comprehensive signage system for the City’s parks, natural lands and trails.
The purpose of the project is twofold: (1) establish a plan that outlines the signage standards for enhancing the user experience, and then (2) create the design of specific signs for nine sites below:
Bonneville Shoreline Preserve
Bonneville Shoreline Trail
Ensign Peak Trail
Hidden Hollow Natural Area
H-Rock Open Space
Jordan River Parkway
Miller Park Bird Refuge
Parley’s Historic Nature Park
Wasatch Hollow Open Space
This is the first of three public meetings scheduled during winter/spring 2014 for the public to review progress and provide input on this project.
Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to weigh in on the future of our flagship parks and open spaces!
