(KSL News) The face of downtown Sugar House is changing, but Salt Lake Mayor Rocky Anderson says retaining the area's small businesses should be a number one priority.
Anderson says, "You've got all these places, you walk in and there's a sense of community and gathering place, we need to preserve that."
Today the mayor announced a program that will provide low interest loans and grants to business owners in Sugar House's Granite Block District.
The program is an incentive to the business owners to relocate within the city.
To date, no applications for redevelopment of the area have been submitted to the city, but plans are currently in the works.
