Getting fried by hot August nights? How about taking in a nice, cool, airconditioned municipal meeting at City Hall? Start with a meeting about the redesign of North Temple Boulevard and then move on to a planning meeting that will consider whether or not to allow bars in mixed-use zones in the city. Now, that’s some summer fun right there!

North Temple Boulevard
Public Workshop

Thursday, Aug. 6
The city will host a workshop to develop a distinct plan for North Temple Boulevard. This is a city project that looks to pretty up the TRAX corridor that is projected to connect downtown Salt Lake City to the airport in 2013. Plans call for good lighting, benches and other amenities—everything needed for a grand, walkable and transit-serviced boulevard. Getting the vision means gathering public input, so show up and speak up. The meeting will include food, beverages and activities to distract any kids you might want to bring along.
Pioneer Police Precinct, 1040 W. 700 South, Aug. 6, 6-8 p.m., 801- 535-6230

Salt Lake City Planning Commission Meeting
Wednesday, Aug. 12
In the quest for normalcy, many imbibers may think that the end of private-club memberships was the final leg in legalizing adulthood. Lo and behold, the city is still engaged in charting new territory on the booze front.

One bar, Andy’s, has already won Round 1 in asking the city to consider conditional uses that would allow neighborhood bars to be located in residential neighborhoods. This helps further city leaders’ vision of more walkable (or stumbleable) neighborhoods.

Now, the Planning Commission is considering a similar revision that would allow bars to request conditional uses in mixed-use zones. This is where Marmalade-area drinking establishment, The Jam, is taking its fight to move from a beer bar to a club with a full liquor license. Come cheer (or jeer) their case at the Salt Lake City Planning Commission.

City & County Building, 451 S. State, Aug. 12, 5:45 p.m., 801-535- 7757
