South Salt Lake 'on the move'

(Salt Lake Tribune) In her first State of the City speech, South Salt Lake Mayor Cherie Wood unveiled a new logo and "City on the Move" brand" as well as an aggressive goal to buy Granite High and convert it into a "recreational megaplex."

"We have heard your voices," Wood said Thursday when referencing the mothballed high school. "You will help us build a facility that will be crucial in our crusade to create a new South Salt Lake."

Her vision for the schoolhouse at 501 E. 3900 South: A combination rec center-concert hall with spruced-up space for city business. Wood has assembled a team of public officials and private consultants to find a creative way to finance the buy, which has been pledged before by the suburb, to no avail.

"It had been talked about in the past as maybe a dream," said Assistant Mayor Charee Peck. "Now it's serious."
