Over the next five years, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is going to be re-making a significant part of downtown Salt Lake City. This week on Utah NOW we're asking, whose interests will define the character of downtown? Can a project designed and built by a private religious entity be the foundation for a vibrant city center?
Editorialist Ben Fulton of the Salt Lake City Weekly comments on the future look of downtown.
