It is a commitment to our future.
Downtown Salt Lake City's transformation since the launch of Downtown Rising in 2007 has been dramatic- our urban center is more dynamic and diverse than ever before. Now it is time to look to the future. Downtown has the opportunity to build on a decade of upward momentum with strategic green infrastructure, housing, transportation and environmental initiatives.
