SALT LAKE CITY — The city's next Mayor's Symposium will discuss air pollution and its connection to Salt Lake City's cultural attractions and future growth.
The event, titled "Mountain Urbanism, Mountain Modernism," is Thursday, Feb. 13, from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m at The Leonardo. The symposium will be followed by an exhibition at 5:30 p.m.
The symposium, in its fourth year, is a collaboration of the Salt Lake City mayor and the University of Utah's College of Architecture and Planning. The symposium aims to be a catalyst for improving the region by building on existing assets.
"We focused on the Jordan River and the Granary District in the first two years and both areas are regenerating," said Nan Ellin, chairwoman of the U.'s Department of City and Metropolitan Planning. "We are fortunate to be part of a community that cares deeply about this place we live and possesses the talent, creativity, resourcefulness and generosity to make it ever better."
The symposium is free and open to the public. Details of the agenda are available online at www.plan.utah.edu.
