“These buildings that’ve been sitting empty in downtown Salt Lake City for a long time'with the property owners just sitting on them, property banking, if you want to call it'I would set a time limit where they would have to actually do something with the buildings: sell them, remodel them, refurbish them, do something.

Maybe that’s anti-American and so on but, you know what, that’s the way it is.
