If you could change anything in Salt Lake City what would it be?

Clean up the S-line/pedestrian trail/Fairmont Park area.

I recently started biking to work downtown from the Sugar House Park area using the S-line pedestrian trail to the 600 E Neighborhood Byway. Unfortunately, on my commute home a few weeks ago while riding along the S-line trail, I had to swerve around a homeless man shooting up drugs in his ankle. In fact, I often rode past several homeless sleeping and hiding in tiny areas along the pedestrian trail. Not only is it sad and heart-wrenching to see this, but also I do not feel safe taking that route to work anymore (unfortunate because it is a great bike route downtown). I know SL County and SLC mayors are working on the homeless issue in SLC, but I guess I did not realize how bad the problem is in the Fairmont Park area until I got out on the "back roads" firsthand.
