Ravell Call, Deseret News
The city's streetcar project is a vital component to the growth of Sugarhouse. Phase I of the project will directly connect Sugarhouse to the TRAX Central Pointe Station, but future phases could possibly unite this eclectic yet energetic borough of Salt Lake City to much more.
Mayor Ralph Becker's administration, many community members and many Westminster College students all agree that continuing the Sugar House Streetcar down 1100 East is the best option for the community. Continuing the streetcar down 1100 East allows for growth and both short-term and long-term benefits that will last well into the future.
The 1100 East proposal has already been dubbed "Purple Line SLC" by all of us students at Westminster who would love to see an easier and greener way to get to the jobs and shopping in the center of Salt Lake. Join me at the Sugar House Streetcar Public Hearing on April 23 at 7 p.m. in the City and County Building to make Sugar House a better place — and don't forget to wear your purple.
