The Planning Division, the RDA, and the Transportation Division have been quietly working together on a project to address mid-block streets and walkways in the downtown. How can the City improve these small and intimate connections through the downtown? And how can we get more of them?

The Walkable Salt Lake project attempts to answer these questions and provide guidance for the City, property owners, and developers. You can learn more about the project here. We also have the DRAFT Mid-block Walkways Design Guidelines available on our Publications page for your review and comment. Start a conversation through SpeakOut!

Update (Feb 3, 2014): Weigh in on the Draft Guidelines on Open City Hall.
