SLC International Airport Master Plan Virtual Public Engagement Meeting

Salt Lake City has secured its position as a global aviation hub by opening a brand new airport that will serve the region for decades to come. To prepare for the future, the Department of Airports is updating its Master Plan to serve the area and accommodate future air transportation demand for the next 20 years. You’re invited to an in-person Public Information meeting.

It will be held at SC Airport’s Greeting Room (located on Level 2 north of Hudson News). Validations will be provided for the parking garage.

Masks are required to be worn inside the airport. The meeting can also be attended virtually at the following link: https://slcairport.com/masterplan



Book Signing - Secret Salt Lake with Jeremy Pugh

Where can you find a chunk of the Matterhorn enshrined at a Utah ski resort? What is the origin of Josepa, the Hawaiian ghost town in the desert? And why is Utah called the Beehive State? You hold in your hands the answers to these questions and more in this guide to the oddities, wonders, myths, and legends of Utah’s capital city. Secret Salt Lake City opens a window into the weird, the bizarre, and the obscure secrets of the city, some of which are hiding in plain sight. Founded by religious pioneers from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in 1847, its one-of-a-kind origin story makes Salt Lake City a rich backdrop for frontier grit, culture, and curious relics. Did you know that there is an alphabet hidden in your computer that was invented in Salt Lake City? What is the significance of the religious symbols on the Salt Lake Temple? And how did Sherlock Holmes solve a fictional mystery in London that originated in Utah? Lifetime resident and author Jeremy Pugh and Mary Brown Malouf unlock these mysteries and more to pull back the curtain on the secrets of Salt Lake City. This isn’t your traditional guidebook, and it will enrich your visit to the Crossroads of the West. ​Jeremy Pugh is a writer living in Salt Lake City who, in one way or another, has been writing about culture, history and the outdoors in Salt Lake City for more than a decade. Formerly the editor of Salt Lake magazine, Pugh is a freelancer and consultant writing for SKI, Sunset and Salt Lake magazines. A lifelong Utahn, Jeremy travels widely but always loves returning home to the mountains where he bikes, hikes and skis as much as is humanly possible. Join us for an evening of engaging Utah stories with Jeremy Pugh. The reading and Q&A will be held in front of The Printed Garden under our overhang. We'll have copies of Jeremy's book for sale, and the store is open, but will be limiting the number of people indoors at any given time. This even will begin at 7:00 p.m.
