Improving Salt Lake City

By City Weekly Staff
Posted // July 28,2010 - What is the No. 1 thing that would make SLC (or county) more livable?

Bill Frost: Relocating it to Southern California.

Ben Rosch: Separation of church and state, and more tolerance and understanding that we are not all exactly the same.

Doug Kruithof: Wave the magic “Good Air Quality“ wand, please.

Stephen Dark: An old-fashioned British pub down by the Jordan River. Sawdust on the floors, no TV screens, Brit grub like bangers and mash or a decent fish & chips and a beer garden slopping down to the water’s edge. Perfect. I’d move in tomorrow.

Jesse Fruhwirth: We need clean air, and that probably won’t be accomplished without a reinvigorated mass transit system and stiff motor-vehicle restrictions.

Rachel Hanson: Popeyes Chicken.

Lia Pretorius: Ethical individuals who consistently demonstrate integrity in all levels of government and throughout our business community. Impossible? Well, then, I guess clean air would be nice, too.

Bryan Mannos: Cathouses and free-ice-cream Fridays.

Ted Scheffler: What’s missing? We need a beach!

Nick Clark: To have local businesses, restaurants and watering holes within walking distance in the suburbs.

Lindsay Fenton: Trader Joe’s. Being able to buy wine at Trader Joe’s. Trader Joe’s, I miss you.

Take a team of bulldozers, the biggest ones you can find, and chain them six-abreast and starting at the Leprechaun, plow a path down the east side of 700 east north to 2100 South. Turn them around and go back down the west side of 700 East (skip Nibley Golf course, of course) to 900 East.

Then xeriscape the newly discovered land and call it The Mother Of All Beautification Projects.
