Ironically Named Strip Malls, The Past, And The Future
Last week, the Tribune ran a story on the new developments on the west bench. Apparently the development ideas are very different from what we've grown up with. from the Tribune article: "The exercise runs counter to development traditions of the late 20th century that spawned sprawl, strip malls and people driving everywhere for everything. 'People have seen the failures from the past thinking,' said Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon. 'This is a blueprint for our future.'" So I guess Councilman Randy Horiuchi is staying far away from this project. In the face of new ideas, he and Mayor Tom Dolan have retired to their bunker to plot the return of the ironically named strip malls.
