Dreams Do Come True 

Pin It

With the completion of the City Creek Project on the two blocks downtown, we will truly create one of the finest downtowns in America. We all thank the LDS Church for this revitalization for the city we love.

It would be wonderful to have the five stories of parking below-ground versus the prior five stories aboveground. But, the two beautiful malls will feature the City Creek running through them, surrounded by trees, grass and fountains. Another unique feature is that it will have a roof that will automatically cover them if it gets too hot or cold. With the addition of 500 condos and many apartment rentals, it will create wonderful urban living downtown. This will be complemented by a beautiful new Harmons grocery store.

With The Gateway being the west anchor to downtown and the Grand and Little America hotels being the south anchor, this will truly help us to be one of the finest downtowns in America.

It is of prime importance to note that the west anchor is connected to the south anchor by free light rail.

The one remaining challenge is to fill the vacancies on Main Street. Much is in the planning stage to do this. First of all, it is hoped that the Utah Theater can become a year-round theater to show movies like those shown at the Sundance Film Festival.

Across the street we hope to build a beautiful Broadway theater that can also be used for performing arts.

With all the improvements and with our united effort, we can truly create one of the finest downtowns in America.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
