Couch Potatoes, Arise!

[Stuff to do] Listen up. There are some good things going on that require your civic involvement. Go. Learn. Become a force to be reckoned with.

Today (Nov. 13), starting at 3 p.m. in Room 326 of the City & County Building (451 S. State): The Salt Lake City Council will hold Round 2 of dialogue on the city's economic forecast. Speaking are U of U planning professor Chris Nelson; Wasatch Front Regional Council's Doug Hattery and Val Halford; LDS Church/City Creek Center spokesman H. David Burton; Gateway mall's Jake Boyer; Trolley Square's Tom Bard; and RDA director D.J. Baxter (who will moderate a panel discussion on future housing needs in the SLC). If you can't tear yourself away to attend, watch it later on cable Channel 17. More details here.
