The city is looking for guidance on ordinances meant to keep neighborhoods free of McMansions. Or, for a little comic relief from your zoning survey, check out the Planned Parenthood Action Council’s fund-raising comedy night. And for some much needed perspective on the cultural divide between the state’s native and nonnative Americans, drop by the downtown library for a talk from Utah State Indian Affairs Director Forrest Cuch.

Salt Lake City Compatible Infill Questionnaire
Until Aug. 15
In 2005, the Salt Lake City Council amended its ordinances for single- and twofamily residential developments to help keep neighborhoods styled with a consistent look. The city wants to make sure the ordinance is getting the job done, so if you think the regulations are too looseygoosey or aren’t tough enough then fill out the online questionnaire before August 15 or forever hold your peace. www.SLCGov.com/CED/planning/pages/ComInfill.htm

Planned Parenthood Utah’s Stand Up for Choice
Thursday, July 30

There’s nothing funny about STDs or unwanted pregnancies, but if there is any occasion to laugh about such serious topics, it will be at the Planned Parenthood Action Council’s comedy night fund-raiser. PPAC will be charging only $5 tickets to see comedians Camille Bird and Karen Michelle Bayard, along with the band Joey Cougar and the Starfish. Woodshed Bar and Grill, 60 E. 800 South, July 30, 8 p.m., 801-328-8939 or email ppac@ppau.org

Rising American Indians Presentation
Tuesday, Aug. 4
With southern Utah’s small towns still reeling from the recent federal crackdowns against graverobbing artifacts traffickers, there is no better time for the native and settler to take part in a discussion on how to bridge a very old cultural divide. The RAIN presentation will give a great start to this discussion with guest speaker Utah Indian Affairs Director Forrest Cuch. Salt Lake City Main Library, 210 E. 400 South, Aug. 4, 3 p.m., RSVP dardi@rainutah.org

    Utah's never-ending warm weather is a shoe-in to keep giving up sunshine right into summer. So, in addition to rubbing a little sunscreen on your nose before a hike, think of giving a bottle to the homeless.
