(KSL News) -- Much of downtown Salt Lake is being demolished to make way for construction of the City Creek development. The businesses that remain want people to know they're still there. Friday night, they threw a block party, with music and food to let clients, customers and shoppers know they haven't gone away.

Scott Anderson, President of Zion's Bank, said, "And I think the real task is to show people that they can't be afraid of coming downtown, that there is parking and there are great businesses that are open, and it's easy to do business here."

Downtown businesses find it critical to get that word out, because construction on the City Creek project will last for the next four years.
