Event by The INN BetweenThe Road Home and Fourth Street Clinic: "To remember and honor homeless persons who have died in Salt Lake City in 2021, and to prevent additional loss of life or suffering caused by homelessness through advocacy, education and other initiatives. Join us as members and leaders of our communities gather together to remember those we love and lost. This event is free and open to the public and members of all communities. Thank you to our wonderful community partners for helping to host this event and honor those who passed."

Joe Taylor of Salt Lake City's Transportation Division, which wants to know your priorities as the city updates its 25-year-old master transportation plant. 

  • Dec. 31: Deadline to take Connect SLC survey. "Connect SLC will consider our sidewalks and streets holistically. We seek to use our streets not just as a means for person and vehicle mobility, but also as our shared living space. To accomplish this, we want to work with the community to learn about past and current transportation barriers and opportunities to improve connections and the streetscape in the City. We seek to understand how our diverse residents travel to places like work and the grocery store, what they like and don’t like about the streets they use, and what our system of streets and roadways could and should be."
