In his State of the City speech, Salt Lake City mayor Rocky Anderson laid out goals for urban population growth, transit-oriented development, and healing community divisions. He announced plans to add downtown housing in conjunction with Main Street and downtown development projects by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He also discussed plans to add student housing to the University of Utah near the new light rail extension. In the next few months he will unveil a marketing campaign to promote living, working, and visiting downtown. Other goals include increasing drunk driving enforcement, publishing a "good neighbor" manual for new residents, and streamline the licensing and permitting process.
