Theater battle brewing between Sandy, Salt Lake
Deseret News, 7 December 2007
A battle is brewing between Sandy and Salt Lake City over the location for a Broadway-style performing arts theater. Salt Lake elected officials and community leaders envision a state-of-the-art performing arts theater as the cornerstone of a downtown arts, culture and entertainment district. A Utah County developer is proposing to build an office, condominium, and retail complex near Sandy City Hall, with a 2,500-plus-seat theater as its anchor. Studies have indicated that the state would be able to support only one facility. Less than a year ago, Sandy attracted a Major League Soccer stadium away from Salt Lake City.
