The Utah Pride Center is expected to move during the week of April 15 out of its present building, which has been its home since 1998, to a soon-to-be-renovated location a few blocks away.
Last March, Pride officials bought a two-story building at 255 E. 400 South, one of Salt Lake City's busiest downtown streets, but the renovations have not progressed as fast as planned. To save money, the center will move from 300 W. 361 North to the new location while officials continue to pursue donations.
"Essentially we have all the construction documents," said Valerie Larabee, Pride's executive director. "It will probably take another year or more of fundraising before we start to put in a shovel (toward fully renovating the new building)."
