Without discussion Tuesday, the Salt Lake City Council, acting as the Redevelopment Agency board, voted to allocate $537,072 to purchase unidentified real estate that may or may not be for sale.
The allocation was earmarked for property on Block 70 where the Utah Performing Arts Center will be built on Main Street between 100 South and 200 South. But neither the RDA staff, nor the board would identify which parcels were being considered.
Councilman James Rogers was the lone "no" vote. Councilwoman Lisa Adams was absent. But Council members Kyle LaMalfa, Erin Mendenhall, Stan Penfold, Luke Garrott and Charlie Luke voted in favor of the allocation.
