While the city’s cop-shop controversy has died down, the city still needs to sell the Proposition 1 bond to voters in this year’s general election on Nov. 3. That’s why they’re taking the case to the people. Check that out, and while you’re at it attend a dialogue on sexual violence in Utah and a public workshop on revitalizing Salt Lake County’s vital public artery, State Street.

Proposition 1 to People’s Freeway Community Council
Thursday, Oct. 1
Hear the city’s sales pitch for a $125 million bond for a new public safety civic campus across the street from Library Square. The meetings will be all over the city in coming weeks as bond supporter´s talk about the decrepit status of the current public safety building and how the time is right to invest in a new facility. The city expects the tax impact will only be about $75 a year per residential property.
Horizonte Instruction Center, 1234 S. Main Street, Oct. 1, 7 p.m., 801-359-9670 for more Prop. 1 info, visit: slc.gov/psb

Dialogue on Sexual Violence
Tuesday, Oct. 6
The Rape Recovery Center will be hosting a forum along with the local chapter of the Human Rights Commission discussing how to enhance local services for sexual abuse victims.

The event is free and open to the public, with Spanish translation available.

Life on State planners have been compiling survey responses and input from public workshops. Now, they are presenting drafts on the vision of what to do with Salt Lake City´s grand ol’ drag, State Street. Take a peek at how the plan to revitalize the street is taking shape and give a holler if you feel something’s still missing from the vision.
