SALT LAKE CITY — The Public Service Department’s Parks and Public Lands Division has named Leslie Chan as its new Open Space Lands Program manager.
Chan will focus on open space acquisition, conservation and restoration of natural areas and enhancing public access to natural areas and trails.
“I feel lucky to have this exciting opportunity to expand and restore our highly beneficial asset — the city’s natural lands — and to help provide for the public a high-quality experience in our natural recreation areas,” Chan said in a press release.
Chan is working on several restoration projects that are expected to be under way this spring, including Wasatch Hollow Open Space, Ensign Peak and the greenway along the Jordan River.
