  1. 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?

  2. 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).

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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".

  7. 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.

  9. 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…

  11. Revitalize and Intiate Small Neighborhood Business Areas like 9th and 9th

    These small neighborhood are small activity centers to reduce traffic congestion and promote the quality of neighborhood community. Promote small businesses, "ma and pa" shops, and figure out what the neighbors want and need.

  13. 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…

  14. get rid of suburban-ish developments

    The city code needs to be changed so that someone can't tear down an attractive old house and replace it with some brown stucco tract home that you'd see in Eagle Mountain. Strip malls, stucco, gargantuan parking lots, all belong in the suburbs, not the city.

  16. extend TRAX platforms to reach from block to block

    The 400 s TRAX platforms are annoying, the platforms stretch from block to block, but they have dumb landscaping that prevents you from entering there. For example, if you want to enter the Trolley Square station, you have to walk all the way over to 600 East, even though you could be standing right at 700 East, staring at the end of the platform, but it is blocked off by landscaping, taunting you... and of course, in the time it takes to walk a SLC city block (large), the train comes and goes and you miss it.. Also, I don't…

  17. Get rid of overhead powerlines

    Bury them. They're extremely unattractive to look at not to mention a safety hazard during heavy snow or bad weather.

  20. Revitalize 1300 S., Near Ballpark

    I know I am dreaming, but . . . if I were loaded, I'd try to draw an MLB team to SLC, expand Spring Mobile BP, which would help to revitalize area.
