Fall 2019 - Health of a Community

From the Editor

westview fall 2019 1Download PDFNow that the kids are back in school, and temperatures are cooling off, we can reflect on the events of the past summer. In this issue, we highlight some of our most significant community events – some annual, like Groove in the Grove and Westpointe/Jordan Meadows Night Out Community Festival, and some one-time events, such as the 68th United Nations Conference for Civil Society and the Centennial of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, which both took place in our capital city in August.

This issue also brings you stories about health, fitness, and significant development projects that will affect west-side residents, such as the inland port and Beck Street Transmission Line projects. All of these things affect our health and the health of our community in good and bad ways.

As community members and voters, we have a lot to consider before the November general election. We hope that through The West View, our readers will become more informed about issues affecting our community’s health and quality of life.

We invite you to get involved in your community newspaper. If you haven’t had the experience of attending a West View Community Newsroom meeting yet, we encourage and welcome you to come to one of our upcoming meetings, which are open to the public.

We meet on the third Tuesday and third Friday of every month. September’s meetings will be held:

  • Tuesday, Sept. 17, 6 – 8 p.m. at Sorenson Unity Center, 1383 S. 900 West
  • Friday, Sept. 20, 8:30 – 10:30 a.m. at Mestizo Coffeehouse, 641 W. North Temple
  • October’s meetings will be held on Oct. 15 and Oct. 18, and November’s meetings will be held on Nov. 19 and Nov. 22, at the same times and locations above.

Come help us decide what is newsworthy, and support local journalism!
