City to Host Community Festival

SALT LAKE CITY – Salt Lake City will host a free street festival, West SLC Fest, on Saturday, Sept. 28, at the corner of Indiana Avenue (850 South) and Navajo Street (1365 West) from noon to 5 p.m. to share information on a host of projects and efforts aimed at improving and enhancing community vitality.

The Salt Lake City Planning Division is working to implement great ideas from residents like revitalizing commercial centers that offer a mix of retail, service businesses, restaurants and outdoor dining to create a sense of place.  Special signs will help direct participants to community projects including the new children’s art work project on the 700 South Jordan River bridge and an innovative new recreation facility at the pump track bike park on 900 South.

In addition, various City departments will showcase services and programs offered to area residents to help them improve their health, homes and neighborhood as well as spotlight current and future projects in the area.  

Participating departments include the Mayor’s Office, Planning, Housing and Neighborhood Development, Parks and Public Lands, Sustainability, Public Services, Transportation, Police, Fire and Public Utilities as well as the City Library, Jordan River Commission, Utah Performing Arts Center and the Sorenson Unity and Recreation Centers.
