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

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.

Wednesday, March 9

Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker will propose adding Housing Diversity to his Sustainability Code Development Project.
