    SLC-Open house at the Fisher Mansion on the Parkway.

    This was sent to me on the saltcycle thingy from Mark at Saturday Cycles. I know there are several people here who are big parkway nuts, so I thought it was appropriate to pass it on. Let's show up, and get something going for us bike nuts.

    >Genevieve Atwood has been tasked with helping to decide how to use
    this cool old home. The house sits right on the Jordan River and was
    bought by city to maintain right of way for the pathway. Genevieve likes
    the idea of a shop in the back with bike rentals, bike classes etc.

    >All you cyclists should plan to show up at the mansion to express
    your interest in having another place similar to Bike Collective, a
    cyclists reat stop on the Jordan river, cycling classes, whatever you can
    think of. Ralph and Genevieve like bikes here, please show up and let them
    know that cyclists want a piece of this pie.

    >Salt Lake City – Mayor Ralph Becker is hosting an Open House at the
    historic Fisher Mansion to give residents of Salt Lake City an
    opportunity to tour the building and offer their input and suggestions on how
    Salt Lake City could best reuse the property and create a public space
    that serves the community in a positive way.

    >The Fisher Mansion is an architecturally unique historical treasure
    which the city hopes to renovate for community use. Visitors to the open
    house will be encouraged to share their ideas for future community use
    of the mansion, carriage house and property.

    >Renovation of Fisher Mansion is the first project to be undertaken
    under Mayor Becker’s Salt Lake Solutions program. Salt Lake Solutions
    is a collaborative approach that involves the community, considers a
    wide range of ideas and options, and arrives at public solutions based on
    healthy dialogue and consensus.

    >The Fisher Mansion adjoins the Jordan River parkway, and is ideally
    located for public access by bus, from TRAX and via bike paths. While
    specific decisions about renovation and reuse of the property will be
    made in conjunction with the community and other potential partners, the
    City anticipates the renovation will advance historic preservation, tie
    together our waterways and urban trails network, expand cultural
    offerings, and showcase environmental stewardship.

    And don't forget to put in a plug for weed control on the Parkway! Damn goat heads have made the city section virtually unusable for bikes.
