Convenient parking is a capitol idea
As people flock to the Legislative session, parking can be a sore spot.
This year, The Capitol Preservation Board has created a transit program to make it easier for visitors to park at the Capitol Hill Complex. "We are really trying to accommodate the public and make them comfortable," said Director of Public Relations and Communications on the Public Relations Board. Tokens will be made available to all visitors. Pick them up at the Capitol Preservation Board Office Senate Building Room 110, Senate and House Offices, the Governor’s Office and at the Sergeant at Arms. People will be given as many tokens as they need. They may be used at one of 60 Salt Lake City Alliance program parking lots. One token gives you a dollar off the parking fee and several tokens may be used. They are also good for a ride on all UTA Bus/TRAX lines.
Bus route number 23 goes past many of these lots and has a stop at the Senate Building on Capital Hill.
During peak hours UTA will offer expanded and direct service from the parking lot across the street from the Delta Center on 300 W. South Temple. The Capitol Preservation Board recommends this lot for its convenience.
The express service will last from 7:15 a.m. to 8 a.m. and from 4:15 p.m. to 6:20 p.m. with shuttles arriving frequently.
They also suggest that you give yourself plenty of time for transit and car pool as opposed to driving alone.
Gamble said people were utilizing the program on Monday and it had received positive reviews from those who used it.

A call came in to the Sheriff’s Office Tuesday that a man with a gun wanted to end his life or have cops end it for him. After an hour of negotiating, the incident ended peacefully.
