The ride was meant to promote fitness, clean air, community building, bike safety and celebration of the new bike park as they rode to the City County Building.

"Mayor’s Bike to Work Day is a great opportunity to get out and enjoy a beautiful spring morning on two wheels," Biskupski said in a news release.
Before setting off, riders were scheduled to watch BMX and mountain bikers in a demonstration at the bike park.

Plumes of dark smoke rose above Salt Lake City just west of Interstate 15 on Monday afternoon as firefighters worked to extinguish fire burning two houses and causing hundreds of dollars in damage.
No one was injured from the fire, which ignited near 150 S. 900 West about 2:45 p.m., said Salt Lake City Fire Department spokeswoman Audra Sorensen
Witnesses said the fire began in the house to the north. Its sole resident said he heard a series of explosions coming from the rear of the home.
Virna Martinez, whose family owns a restaurant on the same block, said the flames began in the northern house, nicknamed "the hoarder home because there’s so much stuff between" it and the neighboring house.
(Trent Nelson | The Salt Lake Tribune) Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski speaks to an overflow crowd and the Sugar House Community Council at the Sprague Library in Salt Lake City on Wednesday, Jan. 4, 2017. The meeting hosted city officials who addressed the proposed shelter at 653 E. Simpson Ave. that Biskupski said Tuesday could conceivably be "rethought," even if the city hasn’t changed its mind.
Then came the decision of where those shelters would go. Again, city officials hid themselves behind closed doors. Neighborhoods at issue were outraged the process was so shrouded in secrecy. Why wouldn’t they disclose possible sites? And where were the community meetings about those sites, as the Utah Prison Relocation Commission had done?
Transparency is essential in a process that has been so filled with controversy. The public needs to know the who, what, when, where and why of these decisions.
Yet Biskupski’s chief of staff, Patrick Leary, denied releasing records of minutes and recordings from meetings held by city leaders to choose shelter sites. Leary’s explanations are thin.
"First, the city may still seek to acquire one or more of the parcels discussed for other purposes, and its negotiating position should not be compromised by making recordings public," Leary’s denial read. "Second, the public interest is not matched or outweighed by the necessity of allowing governmental entities to seek confidential advice from attorneys."
On the first point, the city overpaid for the properties it bought, one by at least $2 million and perhaps over $5 million. So maybe they need some fresh eyes on their financial decisions. That transaction was canceled, with a loss of $10,000 in earnest money. All that is an argument for an open process, not an invitation to repeat a closed one.
On the second point, GRAMA requires something more than the vague assertion of attorney-client privilege. Besides, even if city attorneys were present in these meetings, if any other county or state representatives or outside consultants were present, attorney-client privilege would be waived.
But when Sugar House neighborhood activist George Chapman appealed the city’s ruling to the State Records Committee, that panel found itself going in circles trying to follow a state law that seems to allow the city to keep secret records that were created in secret meetings. That’s too big a loophole, and the law should be changed.
Biskupski ran on a platform of increased government transparency. The city’s process on homeless shelters has been weak, and a full public accounting of it would be good government. Especially since the process is not over.
As Biskupski said herself, "Insider, backroom deals like this undermine people’s confidence in their government."
Hello folks! Today’s mid-century modern gem in Salt Lake City is sure to not disappoint! Someone posted it on one of the mid-century groups a few weeks ago, I bookmarked the listing, got busy and forgot about it. Ha! But something made me think of it this week, and I knew y’all would like to see this one! Let’s check it out!
This home is located at 2738 E Pebble Glen Circle, Salt Lake City, Utah on a nice lot in a desirable neighborhood. It is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath, 2,828 square foot home built in 1965 that is being offered at $649,000. The listing is courtesy of Mony Ty at Caldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. For more information and additional photos you can check out the listing here. From the listing:
A faded name on the blueprint is all we know of Larry J. Rowsell. We understand he came to Salt Lake City from California, and left a short time after building a handful of beautiful modern homes in the 1960s. We are left with little knowledge of the man, other than the carefully considered details in his homes. He never let anyone else touch the designs of his kitchens or bathrooms, or even his closets or stairs. He designed every square inch of every single home he gave his name to, from the louvered drawers and cabinetry (made to mimic the louvered windows of course), right down to the tiniest rosewood drawer handle details. Clerestory windows perch above the walls of this home, adding light and air to the interior rooms, and giving wings to a roofline that flutters like a butterfly in Spring. Like most modern homes of the period, there is privacy from the street, and a wide open living space in the back. This may be a perfectly preserved time capsule of 1965, but it is certainly not a period piece; the design is just as relevant today as it was then. You wouldn’t call an Alexander Calder sculpture dated, now would you? This is not “less is more” architecture, in the words of Mies Van der Rohe. No, here, “God is in the details.”
(I think if it were my place I’d take out that bush so you could see the home better.)
(This railing… omg )
(Love the stacked brick fireplace wall and the clerestory windows!)
KITCHEN & DINING ROOM
(Amazing organic feel in the kitchen- lovely wood grain, pebble glass, and love that the cabinet doors repeat the railing shapes.)
(The built-ins are attractive and functional!)
(IMO the wood knobs are a nice touch, tying the design together.)
(I believe I spy a Witco Wilrongo wall hanging!)
(The architect did a wonderful job tying the design elements together with the repeating pebble glass and wood.)
PATIO & YARD
All I can say is WOW!! I’m totally a sucker for interesting rooflines, especially zig-zag and butterfly. And how about that listing description?! It’s sounds like it’s straight out of a literary journal! The only element I wasn’t in love with was the carpet, but I bet there is something nice under it. The outdoor space is amazing! What did y’all think?
In the wake of a recent ESPN article detailing Warriors players’ dislike for Salt Lake City’s less-than-enthralling nightlife, folks in Utah have come to their town’s defense.
Scott Beck, president and CEO of “Visit Salt Lake,” shared a two-minute video highlighting the attractions the city offers. The segment, cleverly titled, “There’s Nothing to Do in Salt Lake” and originally published in 2015, featured restaurants, bars, concerts, museums, hiking trails and, of course, sporting events. Toward the end of the video, the Jazz’s Derrick Favors is shown dunking over Kevin Durant, then with Oklahoma City.
Salt Lake magazine published a story to its web site Monday outlining travel tips for Golden State. The piece named several of the city’s top clubs to debunk Warriors forward Matt Barnes’ assertion to ESPN that “there’s no nightlife in Utah.”
“Part of me wants to let them think that we’re a boring town because I like my housing prices like I like my crime rates and my blood alcohol levels—low,” Christie Marcy, Salt Lake magazine’s associate editor, wrote. “But I’m not going to let these Northern California snobs besmirch the good name of my adopted city. No sir. Not on my watch.”
Perhaps no list of restaurant or club recommendations can top Jazz forward Joe Ingles’ advice.
“They can still go to L.A. between games if they want,” Ingles told reporters Monday. “They’ve got enough money to pay for a jet and go home and come back on game day, so. … If they want the entertainment, they can drive to Vegas, too, if they really want. I’ll hire a car for them if they want.”
The Warriors, who host Utah for Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals Tuesday night, will fly to Salt Lake City on Friday to play games 3 and 4.

SALT LAKE CITY — A cougar was euthanized in downtown Salt Lake City after it wandered into residential areas on Saturday.
Sgt. Ray Loken of the law enforcement section of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources said at about 12:20 a.m., he was called out after several calls reporting multiple cougar sightings in the Glendale neighborhood had come in.
Loken joined Salt Lake City police in the search for the animal. He said police had been receiving calls about the cougar since 4 p.m., Friday, but could not verify any sightings. After “a few hours of searching” in the area of 1130 West and 1300 South, neither Loken nor officers were able to locate the cougar and he went home.
However, Loken said he was called out again around 3:30 a.m., this time from police, saying “they had spotted the animal in someone’s backyard" near the Smith’s Ballpark.
Lorken arrived on the scene in time to see “a young cougar,” which he estimates weighed between 80 and 90 pounds, come out of the backyard and attempt to attack a small house cat. The cougar was unsuccessful and went back into the yard, but its actions convinced Lorken that the animal was getting desperate and posed a danger to residents. He decided to euthanize the animal.
It is the policy of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources to “not use disabling chemical” darts that could be lost if they missed the cougar. So Lorken decided to euthanize the animal with a “gunshot…to the head, so that it immobilizes the animal quickly and we don’t want them to suffer by any means.”
Lorken stressed that this was the “prescribed method and one that [is] considered humane by the American Veterinary Association.”
The cougar was euthanized without any harm to residents or pets.
Loken said that a cougar making its way down to Salt Lake City does not happen frequently but is not “uncommon.” Oftentimes cougars will wander down to the city while they’re hunting, and can’t find their way out of the streets and buildings, he said.
The young age of the cougar led Loken to believe that it was attempting to “establish new territory,” away from the relatively crowded mountains around the valley. This led it down into the valley where it got lost.
Loken advised people who see or stumble upon such a cat or other wildlife creature to “not handle it by themselves.” Those who spot a potentially dangerous animal such as a cougar should maintain distance between themselves and the animal and call 911.

SALT LAKE CITY — The principal of a Salt Lake elementary school is on leave and under police investigation amid a report of misconduct involving a student.
Police say the report appears to be isolated. They have made no arrests and no charges have been filed.
Salt Lake police detective Greg Wilking released few details Tuesday but said the complaint contains some accusations of misconduct against Edison Elementary Principal Laurie Lacy.
"The investigation hasn’t really progressed very far at this point," Wilking said. "We’re still very, very early in this."
An email and phone message left with a number believed to be Lacy’s was not immediately returned Tuesday evening.
Wilking said it’s too early to tell whether the reported behavior rises to the level of a crime. He said he is not sure how long the investigation will take.
Salt Lake police received a report from the Division of Child and Family Services on April 12 accusing Lacy of misconduct, Wilking said. The district was on spring break at the time.
Officers have notified the student’s parents. Wilking said he was unsure where the complaint originated.
The district learned of the allegations "several days ago and immediately started a comprehensive investigation, including placing the principal on leave," Salt Lake City School District spokesman Jason Olsen said in a prepared statement.
Olsen said the district is cooperating with law enforcement and would not comment further.
