      • Cleanup the area around Pioneer Park (again) and dispurse the homeless shelters around the Wasatch Front rather just in downtown SLC

        The area around Pioneer Park has once again become a center for transients and drug dealers. Perhaps camera's would assist the police in cleaning up the area. Further, the homeless centers are all concentrated in this area ... they should be distributed around the valley as well as adjoining counties (who have no shelters). Additionally, the concentration of people on the sidewalks in front of and immediately around the shelters should be eliminated.

          • Utilize the excessive width of our streets

            By narrowing excessively wide local and arterial streets, creating medians, adding walk/bikeways, etc. can have the effect of traffic calming and can lead to safer, more multi-functional streets. The reclaimed space could be used for many social, economic and artistic opportunities. Sidewalks could be widened and street vendors/food carts/open markets could make efficient use the space. Restaurants and stores may extend business into the street with patio and other kinds of seating or displays and architectural features. Landscaped medians and extended sidewalks provide additional shade and color, crossing/walking/lingering opportunities, as well as lending character and identity. Implications for public art…

            • SLC should allow food trucks to remain parked in 1 location for up to 12 hours at a time.

              We are way behind our peer cities nationally in the explosion of upscale food truck cuisine because of an antiquated law that restricts their parking to no more than two hours in one spot. Expanding this to twelve hours would encourage more entrepreneurs in the food industry to launch their own food truck business leading to a Renaissance of great cuisine "on wheels" in town, and allowing us to play catch-up with the rest of the country.

              • I would not allow special interest groups to shut down city streets where traffic is haulted for hours or randomly redirected.

                It is absolutely ridiculous that any exclusive group be allowed to monopolize downtown streets at a whim. Other than the Days of '47 Parade, why must all traffic be at a standstill for hours on end while a random collection of dimwits is allowed, with tax-paid police escort, to parade themselves around for all others to watch? Trying to get from one side of State Street to the other is an impossible joke during these moronic public displays of self-imposed importance.

                • Get rid of all of the non city unionizing (uplifting) businesses.

                  Having the congress, or house pass a bill to enable the city to regain its power from a bill that bans greed in business. I'll remove all the companies that are surnames and reward them for changing, and punishing those who do not change the names. No more slavery!
                  Up with ObamaCare...the only way to keep Americans getting better is to incentive the production of unity is to have them know the laws, the regulations and ordinances and be firmly seeking refuge in the law by being obedient to it.
                  How else do we create a one military World?

                  • I like that SLC county ( i only lived in slc county) is a family oriented atmosphere, I would change for the better more social work.

                    I would involve the census for collecting opinions via telephone, so to catch or to deal with Utah's terrorist support (drug users/makers).

                    • I like that SLC fines persons who abuse animals.

                      I would create a new program of individuals like the men in black that would go around the neighborhoods that have animals (census taken) and social work for all to be legit and appropriate.

                      • UTA is something else I like in SLC, I would add more for customers

                        There would be bicycle vending that would be part of the UTA, that would allow the bus passes to be readable so to allow a bicycle to be taken and returned. I would put them through out the valleys.

                        • I like that slc recylces, I would change the recycling process by adding more incentive for gaining more recyclers.

                          Add accepting machines of aluminum and glass to the grocery stores that give money for every item received.

                          • Designer sidewalks

                            People like myself wish to take pets for walks, however few people realize the heat which emanates from dark pavement can cause blisters on the pads of their pets. Plus, lighter colors exude cheerfulness "overall".

                            • MORE PATROL PRESENCE

                              Animal control and Police patrol after hours and holidays. Better understanding between the two agencies relative to which agency responds when, why and how - not with a "did you call animal control" or "did you call police" - and most importantly, dispatch knowledge. Situation has improved - but, needs considerable improvement still.

                                • Be business friendly the people at planning and room 215 are just plain mean people do not want to wait for their projects sometimes months

                                  Be reasonable with people. do not ticket contractors in the city for parking violations every chance you get. Help us improve the city do not make it so no one wants to work down there. Or if we do work we have to pass the huge cost to customer. Just to get a garage built without any special circumstances cost alot just to get approvel. I could understand if the inspectors actually inspected with vigor. However I still see rails that do not meet code windows and house wrap not to code. Roof venting not even addressed. They worry more…

                                        • Find a happy medium with all this "GREEN" movement.

                                          I am all for the city going “GREEN”, but it needs to be better thought out and balanced to avoid loss of “GREEN BACK” “CASH” We have new bike lanes that are being painted all over the roads of Salt Lake City, but what money are these bikes bringing into the city? Do we charge them to ride these special lanes? NO! Do they pay for the stalls in the city where they park? NO! Cars have to pay to park!! All I hear is how Salt Lake is putting in bike lanes for better transit, and parking rates are…
