After SLC Mayor Ralph Becker’s Public Safety complex on Library Square was shouted down by every able-throated heckler in the county, Becker announced that he’s holding more public meetings on where to place the cop shop. Also this week you can catch a whole slate of meetings explaining Utah’s role in the nation’s coming (hopefully) health reform. You also won’t want to miss the chance to discuss Salt Lake City’s sustainability development revision code that´s in the works to green-ify local zoning and subdivision ordinances.

Public-Safety Complex Open House
Monday, June 22

Oh, now you need input on where to put the public-safety-cop shop? Becker is setting up a series of open houses to bring citizens in to discuss possible locales for the proposed public-safety complex since Library Square has been ruled out. Make sure it doesn’t end up in your back yard.

Sweet Library, 455 F Street (9th Avenue), June 22, 4:30-6:30 p.m., 801-535-7704, mayor@slc.gov
