Downtown Rising Action Plan Release

02 March 2017

On February 15th, State, City and County leaders gathered to unveil the latest downtown SLC development plans with the Downtown Rising Action Plan. This living, breathing document is designed to act as a blueprint for the future of downtown SLC while being adaptable to changes. “We don’t intend to put this action plan on a shelf. Just like downtown, this plan is a living document,” said Downtown Alliance executive director Jason Mathis. “It lays out our ambitions and best thinking at this moment in time. But we reserve the right to make changes to the plan as our city evolves, based on new needs, updated information, best practices and even better thinking.”

The seven new priorities featured in the Action Plan are:
-A sports and entertainment district that benefits The Gateway and Vivint Smart Home Arena
-A cultural core place making and programming effort
-Investment in transportation
-A digital media and arts center
-A downtown school for K-8
-Reinvesting in Pioneer Park with infrastructure and a public private management plan
-A technology campus
