Salt Lake City – In preparation for the construction of the New Performing Arts Center, Salt Lake City plans to relocate trees currently in the public right-of-way near the project site to other locations.
Salt Lake City’s urban forester has identified 11 trees located along the southeast corner of Main Street and 100 South that would be impacted by site preparation for the New Performing Arts Center and 111 Office Tower buildings, slated to begin Jan. 1, 2014. Crews will relocate the trees to Sunnyside Park and along N Street. Similarly sized trees will be planted in their place on Main Street and 100 South once the majority of construction has been completed.
“We understand how important trees are to our community and our downtown environment,” said Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker. “Our team is taking great care to relocate trees so they can continue to grow and flourish.”
To help educate and notify the public, each of the 11 downtown trees are wrapped with information signs explaining the relocation process. To further ensure public awareness, the New Performing Arts Center’s public involvement team also delivered informational flyers to downtown businesses and residents.
