(Salt Lake City, KSL News) -- The debate over Main Street plaza continues to rage. Thousands of callers bombard the city switchboards to voice opinions every day.

Tonight City Council members will hold a fact finding meeting aimed at reaching a decision over the controversial easement.

Former Mayor Deedee Corradini will attend the meeting as will LDS Church leaders.

Topics of discussion are likely to include specifics of the contract, the easement, and an old mystery -- what happened to Condition 15.

The Planning Commission approved a condition saying that restrictions on the property should be no more restrictive than permitted at a public park.

Without public consideration, that condition was dropped before the City Council voted on it.

"We know it was eliminated. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out who would want that eliminated. Then we need to figure out why that process happened prior to it coming to the City Council," says Nancy Saxton, a member of the City Council.

Mayor Rocky Anderson says that 60 percent of the calls his office receives are in favor of keeping the easement open to the public -- and protesters.

Tonight's meeting will be televised on KUED Channel 7.
