Title Preface
Description PREFACE Downtown is the "heart" of the Intermountain Empire, of our State, our County, and our City. It is the center of business, financial, retail, cultural and religious activities . Salt Lake City is one of the few cities in America built originally from a plan, thus having a better basis for our Second Century growth than is found in most cities. As our Downtown enters its Second Century, however, problems common to most large cities have appeared--lack of general guidelines for growth, transportation and parking problems, a loss of much of its attractiveness, and an over-all decrease in its position as the heart of the rapidly growing metropolitan area. The Utah Chapter, American Institute of Architects, accepted the challenge and offered to contribute what turned out to be in excess of $100,000 of professional time in the preparation of the Plan. Spearheaded by the Downtown Planning Association and the architects during the last two years, almost 200 property owners, businessmen and other interested citizens have given volunteer time, work and materials in the preparation of an exciting and realistic plan for Downtown Salt Lake City's Second Century,. . The plan proposed is in no way arbitrary. It is based on the existing nature of Downtown Salt Lake City--its growth pattern, its street system, its unique historical and cultural characteristics. It is a plan designed to meet the needs of people--a Downtown easier for them to reach, easier to move around in, and more attractive and exciting. It will stimulate trade throughout the entire Downtown area, benefiting merchants, property owners and everyone who comes to the Downtown. It will recapture for Downtown its rightful position as "heart" of the metropolitan area, and maintain it as the most important concentration of commercial tax revenue in the state--an objective in the interest of all taxpayers.
