(KSL News) The Historic Landmark Commission will vote today on whether Salt Lake City can move forward with phase one of a plan to transform Pioneer Park.
The city has earmarked $1.4 million for the project, which it hopes to start this fall.
The plan calls for a new path, more trees and plaza entries on the northern corners. Right now, though, the park is a hangout for the homeless and drug dealers.
City officials hope the change will make the park a place other people want to go.
