I was a visitor to Salt Lake City for the holiday season and came away with the best gift I could have been given . . . a safe New Year's Eve party. Your "First Night" not only was a beautiful event, but it was one where I felt safe and secure.

As a senior citizen, I cannot go to many places with a feeling of security. People were nice, events planned well and your downtown has what many cities have lost - activity and people.Thanks to the Downtown Alliance and their vision of what a downtown should really be.
