Lawns and Neighbors on Salt Lake City's West Side

By Beth Hoffman

Salt Lake City, UT – As Salt Lake City grows and diversifies, residents - particularly those on the city's West Side - are struggling to understand each other. Older neighborhoods are evolving in new ways, and many newcomers now speak foreign languages, work unusual hours, or have darker skin But what's most troubling for many of the area's older residents is simply the way the community now looks.
Producer Beth Hoffman has been talking to old-time residents and newcomers to the area.
