SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson is taking his fight against a proposed downtown skybridge to new heights.
Anderson is considering selling access to the air space over a block of Main Street in an effort to stop the LDS Church from building a skybridge there.
The mayor has been the leading opponent of the planned pedestrian skywalk that the church's real-estate arm wants to build as part of the City Creek Center project.
The Salt Lake City Council has amended two downtown planning rules that barred skybridges paving the way for the project. But according to e-mails Anderson sent last month, he's trying to get someone to buy air rights over the street to stop the skybridge. He says he'll look at anything to keep the bridge from being built.
