2013 West SLC Fest

More than 500 people participated in West SLC City fest held on Saturday September 28th in the West Salt Lake Community.  Sixteen City Department / Divisions participated along with the Salt Lake Valley Health Department and Jordan River Commission.  The impetus of the event was to get feedback on the concepts in the draft West Salt Lake Master Plan from residents who would not normally attend a meeting to give input, as well as to inform residents of what projects, programs and services the City has to help them improve their health, homes and community.
