(KSL News) Salt Lake City's two mayoral candidates agree downtown is unique and should be welcome to everyone.
At the fourth annual People's Summit on Poverty, Dave Buhler and Ralph Becker spoke about the redevelopment of downtown.
Becker, who served on the planning commission for seven years, said the planning department is in shambles. As a result, he said it's been missing a voice in the redevelopment of downtown, a problem he plans to rectify.
Buhler, meanwhile, said the redevelopment should make downtown a vibrant center of commerce like it was in the 1960s.
