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

Everyone goes where the activity goes. Eventually, if the activity is going to go to the suburbs, that’s where the restaurants will go. … [Salt Lake City business owners] don’t mind costs, if there is an attractive way to draw the suburbs to the city. We need to look for something that’s going to [give] downtown an identity, not only with the tourists, but with the locals. They work downtown, but they don’t spend downtown. If the suburbs are developing and they become viable, why can’t we do the same thing for the downtown?
