Salt Lake City will host "West SLC Fest," a free street information festival on Saturday at the corner of Indiana Avenue (850 South) and Navajo Street (1365 West) from noon to 5 p.m.

The purpose of the festival is to share information on a host of projects and efforts aimed at improving and enhancing community vitality.

The city's planning division is working to implement ideas from residents that include revitalizing commercial centers to create a sense of place.

Special signs will help direct participants to community projects, such as the new children's artwork project on the 700 South on the Jordan River bridge and an innovative new recreation facility at the pump track bike park on 900 South near Interstate 15.

In addition, various city departments will showcase services and programs offered to area residents to help them improve their health, homes and neighborhood, as well as spotlight current and future projects in the area.
