West Valley City Hall is largely empty today in observance of the Martin Luther King Holiday. America-The Diversity Place has chosen to highlight the dedication of Rosa Parks Drive in West Valley as the feature story commemorating the holiday. The road leading to the Utah Cultural Celebration Center has received widespread attention for this action, an action that highlights the spirit of Unity, Pride, and Progress of Utah's second most populous city.
The UCCC is a very fluent and important area of West Valley City and the greater Salt Lake Valley and it is important to be continually adding to that campus. Adding not only in programs and events, not only adding in monuments and exhibits, but most importantly adding to that place in a deeper meaning and spirit. In honoring the legacy of Rosa Parks we add important meaning and spirit to our community. That meaning and spirit will be different things to different people, but the underlying Unity-Pride-and Progress of honoring those that have sought to make our country great, will hopefully be a reminder and an inspiration to those that travel it to find new ways of bringing families, neighborhoods, and nations together.
