Salt Lake City: New Main Street Needed
"Salt Lake City leaders have tried everything. Former Mayor Deedee Corradini figured sending light-rail trains down the middle of the street -- a sort of revival of the old trolley system -- would bolster businesses. The city spent $12 million to replace concrete sidewalks with granite paving stones and wrought-iron benches. The Downtown Alliance and Redevelopment Agency paid a Canadian consulting firm to tell them Salt Lake City needs more nightlife -- one in a long list of Main Street studies."
