With the U.S. census wrapping up, it’s the time when political maps need to be redrawn. You’ll want to keep an eye on the folks with the maps and red pens, so don’t miss a Salt Lake County Redistricting Commission meeting this week. For those curious about green rewrite, you won’t want to miss an open house addressing changes to Salt Lake City’s sustainability code. Later this weekend, give politics a rest and volunteer your time tutoring adult refugees.
