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 PressBackers.com, 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

If you’re a character from your neighborhood who believes in community, then you can get involved and learn about a Salt Lake City plan to protect neighborhoods of character. To further prove you give two shits about your community, you can get out and vote because it’s Election Day. Later, check out a free breakfast put on by nonprofit Bad Dog Arts, which is looking for help promoting arts among youth.

Historic Landmark Commission
Thursday, Nov. 3
Get historical at this city meeting where commissioners will be considering a citywide proposal on how to protect neighborhoods of character. When one thinks of iconic SLC hoods like 9th and 9th or 15th and 15th, people think of local, unique, historical charm—not big-box sameness. That’s why the commission will be discussing Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker’s proposal for a framework to decide on what constitutes a “character-conservation district.”
Salt Lake City & County Building, 451 S. State, Room 326, Nov. 3, 5:30 p.m., for more info contact Cecily Zuck, 801-535-6189, or Cecily.Zuck@slcgov.com

Election Day
Tuesday, Nov. 8
Vote, you bastards! It’s the least you can do as a citizen of this country and as a resident of your local community. The Revolt means that literally—it’s the least a citizen can do, to cast their vote for the leaders to represent them. If you’re in Salt Lake City, you can refer to our election guide (see p. 18) for insights into the contested races. Then go out and do your part for democracy.
