Council Workshop Produces 2016 Priorities

With new leadership and two new members, the Salt Lake City Council has launched into the new year with focus on the needs of the Capital City.

Council Members met in a public workshop in January, hashing out priority projects to direct work in 2016. Projects include advancing work on Housing, Homelessness, Street repairs & funding, and Economic Development.

A follow-up discussion on the priority items was held on February 2. Read the Council staff report and watch the Council’s discussion here. Input from the public is always a priority as the plan for the projects develop.
