Earlier today, the Jordan River Commission announced publication of an updated Blueprint Jordan River. Now 20 years old, the blueprint is a framework to transform the once-neglected river corridor into a defining regional amenity. RadioACTive shared comments from Chris Cline, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Technical Advisory Committee Chair, and Soren Simonsen, Executive Director, Jordan River Commission who spoke during a press conference that also served as the kick-off for the annual festival celebrating the river.

Music Meets Activism with Felicia Baca of the Salt Lake City Arts Council, hosted by RadioACTive's Tamrika Khvtisiashvili.
The mission of the Arts Council is to promote, present, and support artists and arts organizations in order to facilitate the development of the arts and expand awareness, access, and engagement.
"Life on State" Commission Announcement: Salt Lake City is taking a major step in restoring the vitality of State Street, between 600 South and 800 South. Moving from planning to implementation, critical investments in the streetscape and pedestrian environment will begin to transform State Street’s identity in 2023.
Life on State will feature eight artist designs that will be adapted into neon signs and placed atop 10-foot-high steel posts. In total, four posts will be constructed along the east and west portions of State Street and each post will feature two unique artworks (front and back). Seven out of the eight selected artists are first-time commissioned artists by our program. Follow along as Life on State comes together on Instagram at @slc_publicartprogram.
