We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Life on State Open House



The Life on State working group has after five months of input, workshops and deliberating created some early draft scenarios on ways to revitalize State Street. Collaborating with architects and engineers the group has looked at the possibility of creating walkable plazas at key areas of the street.--- Other scenarios will consider ways to strengthen the appeal of the grand old drag. The goal is to make the street more than just a stripe of asphalt running down the county, but a road that binds and revitalizes the homes, businesses and communities around it.

The early drafts are in so come check them out and give your opinion. Tonight, Oct. 6 Skylight Lounge at the Salt Lake Community College South City Campus 1575 S State Street at 6 p.m. For more info check out
