Richard Piatt reporting If you have anything left to say about the Main Street Plaza situation, tonight is your night to get the decision-makers' ears. Salt Lake City council will be holding a public hearing on the issue tonight.
This hearing just another step in the process. Anyone who has anything at all to say about Main Street Plaza has a chance to speak.
And that may take a while, depending on who shows up. The council is expected to vote Thursday on the Mayor's 'landswap' proposal.
That calls for 'trading' the easement to the L-D-S church in exchange for cash; and land near the Sorensen Center.
But that easy solution is bogged down by yet another looming challenge from the A-C-L-U, and by the fact that the Supreme Court has not decided whether to hear the church's appeal.
City council members have been swamped with information on the plaza over the last six months, and some have already made up their minds on the Mayor's proposal.
City council members are still willing to hear comments tonight. The hearing will be in the Council Chambers at the City and County Building starting at 6 pm. Comments will be limited to two minutes, but all who sign up will be heard.
That may take a while, but when it comes to an issue like this, the Council knows it has to hear everyone out.
