In two recent articles, The Salt Lake Tribune has used the name "River District" as a substitute term for Salt Lake City's West Side.
As someone who grew up and now lives on the West Side, the renaming was news to me. And it left me with questions that The Tribune failed to address before passing on this name as though its use were both settled and regular:
When did the residents and other stakeholders in Glendale, Poplar Grove, Euclid, Jackson and Fairpark collectively decide to accept the name "River District"? Did they agree at all?
