Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker to Host Community Open House at Historic Fisher Mansion
Public Invited to Tour and Give Input on Potential Reuse of the Property
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.
