"'This project reflects - in style and in substance - the goals, values and priorities we have set for our great city,' Becker said during his 17-minute speech at the Salt Lake City-County Building. 'It exemplifies our continued commitment to move Salt Lake City forward despite challenging economic conditions.'

It's also an example of how Becker's collaborative approach to leading Utah's capital city has allowed his administration to accomplish bold and lofty goals."

He's hoping an influx of federal grant money will help spur even more streetcar projects in the city.
