The circus on the Hill is winding down, but it’s not too late to hear what Gov. Gary Herbert has to say about the legislative sausagemaking so far. This weekend, you can tear up the powder to empower youth served by the National Ability Center. Later, attend the Salt Lake City Planning Commission as it discusses additions to the city Sustainability Code Development Project and development along the Jordan River.

Final Days of the Legislative Session: The Guv’s Perspective
Thursday, March 3

Gov. Herbert has recently blasted how legislators have handled the budget. To hear his thoughts on other bills on the Hill, you won’t want to miss this free forum put on by the University of Utah’s Hinckley Institute of Politics. Herbert is the man with the veto pen, and this forum may be a preview of the bills he will, and possibly won’t, sign into law.

23rd Annual Ability Ski Challenge
Saturday, March 5

The National Ability Center is looking for skiers ready to race down Park City Mountain Resort for a good cause. The NAC has long been dedicated to building self-esteem through integrating folks with physical and cognitive disabilities into all manner of sports. This winter, powder lovers can support this cause by registering ski-racing teams for $1,000 or individuals for $250, with proceeds benefiting the NAC’s mission of bringing sports and fun to athletes of all abilities.

Salt Lake City Planning Commission
Wednesday, March 9

Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker will propose adding Housing Diversity to his Sustainability Code Development Project. The commission will also hear a conditional-use permit request for developments along 44 acres of the Jordan River Parkway for the controversial Regional Athletic Complex that’s recently been protested as an illegal development that could potentially damage vital river ecosystems.
