It’s that time of the year again—after the Legislature adjourns and you remember you ought to keep up on the other levels of government. Madness!

Later, at a West Jordan town hall meeting, you can get a briefing on what the feds are up to from Congressman Jason Chaffetz. Later, learn more about the Salt Lake City Sustainability Code Development Project and other city updates at the Salt Lake City Planning Commission meeting.

Wednesday, March 23

Hope you’re up for a little P and Z, because this commission meeting has a full slate of discussion items. A discussion of Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker’s sustainability code will be held in regard to recycling and construction-waste management. Later, hear a petition regarding the stalled Sugar House development, known as the “Sugarhole.” Becker then will seek approval of the development plan for the once-controversial Public Safety Complex near the downtown library.
