Daniel Kim and Bill Anderson – Both are West Point graduates. They shared a presentation on financial planning and investing.

Their accounts have an “insignificant” minimum investment.
Tennis Court Survey Results and Real Salt Lake Proposal – Kyle Strayer, Special Projects Assistant and Salt Lake City Director of Communities and Neighborhoods, Marcia White
One thing that was clear from the survey was the community wants the location to remain open space/recreation. Nothing is set in stone yet. “We heard you in July,” stated White.
Real Salt Lake (RSL) VP of Community Relations, Mary VanMinde
Overview of a potential concept for the site by Method Architects. They would re-build the Boys and Girls Club building. This would be a gift from RSL and would be given to the City. Would be tied into Fairmont Park where visitors could move from facility to facility without walking on the street. Improved bike lanes and sidewalks. Lots of open plazas and outdoor gathering areas. Additional layer of parking would be under building if funding can be found from City and County. Their goal is to give back to the community.
Current building is outdated and is falling apart and was originally office space turned into a “boys” club, not unisex. The lease is coming close to an end, so it has been hard to get investment into the building.
Open House will be held at 7:00pm Wednesday, November 13th, 2019 at the Boys and Girls Club
