Description Between 2000 and 2500 parking spaces will be required underground. In addition, commercial parking will naturally spring up around the complex; this "would serve the primarily nighttime activities of the Convention-Cultural Center, and then serve as peripheral parking for Downtown workers and shoppers during the day. In the same manner, any additional parking needed for the very largest events would draw on the vast reservoir of parking within the entire Downtown area which would be easily accessible by the internal circulation system-Visitor Center Salt Lake City's role as transfer point between transcontinental and regional transportation makes it the logical location for the supplying of visitor information for the entire Intermountain West as well as local attractions. A Visitor Center is proposed for Downtown which would serve as the focal point for all kinds of information and service for residents as well as visitors regarding scenery, recreation, entertainment, accommodations and reservations throughout the city, state, and Intermountain area. As much as possible, it would also provide travel and transportation information, although reservation and terminal facilities would be provided in the Transportation Center.

Lastly, this would probably be a logical location for a heliport furnishing a direct link from the airport. The atmosphere of the Visitor Center should be quiet and friendly, in contrast to the hurried activity of the Transportation Center. The location must be close to highway access from the region, within easy walking distance of Downtown hotels, restaurants, shopping, and entertainment and closely tied to the Convention Center and Transportation Center. The location proposed is the quarter block bounded by West Temple, 1st South and Richards Streets. Transportation Center A proposed Transportation Center would bring together information and reservation facilities, and as much as possible, terminal facilities of as many forms of transportation as possible. The information and reservation service would include space for lease to travel bureaus as well as ticket offices of all forms of public transportation; information should also be available concerning accommodations within the city.
