But transformation can be positive or negative, and there seems to be a temptation to go too far toward making over some older residential areas of small homes by introducing high-rise apartments and commercial buildings. The City Council should resist that temptation. Proposed zoning changes would encourage high-density housing and businesses in structures 45 to 105 feet tal...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

A touch of here, another touch there. It took only a few seconds or so each time she carefully added a bit of the white paint to the piece depicting a kneeling angel boy. Uhl, a painting conservator from Telluride, Colo., was summoned to Park City in January by the owner of the Cunningham building to a...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

A month later, a gas explosion leveled two buildings in New York City. And just last week, a 115-year-old building in Des Moines burned up. But as tragic as all of these fires were, they also all have one thing in common: they didn’t expand and burn down most of their respective cities. That’s actually pretty remarkable. In the 1800s, for example, “great” fires ravaged Chicago, Seattle and Vancouver.
