What’s your big idea?

Part of what makes a city great is when its citizens participate in the discussion to make their city better.   Salt Lake City leaders have recognized this and have reached out to residents for ideas on how to make downtown Salt Lake better that will be integrated into the new Downtown Master Plan.

We at The SL City want to feature your “big idea” for Salt Lake.  Maybe it is a better way to utilize Salt Lake’s notoriously wide streets.  Or it is that large surface parking lot that has driven you crazy for years and you have an idea on how it should be developed.

Send us your “big idea,” include your name and email.  Tell us a little about yourself and describe your idea in 200-300 words.  Be specific and don’t hold back!  We will feature one of the best ideas each week.

Email your submission and any renderings or photos you would like to include to isaac@slcity.  Put “big idea” as the subject and don’t forget to provide your name and a brief description of yourself (profession, where you are from etc.)
