The mission of the SHCC is to involve citizens in identifying issues, plans and projects that enhance the beauty, safety, vibrancy, and human-scale character of Sugar House neighborhoods, business, and historical and natural resources. The council sponsors, supports and provides a voice on such issues to governing bodies, public and private service agencies, the community at large and any other organization or individuals that may directly affect the vitality of the Sugar House area and its residents.
The SHCC is entirely run by volunteers who live, work, or own property within our boundaries. Our membership is broken up into designated neighborhoods and the number of trustees is determined by population numbers taken from each census to be proportional. We have active committees that are open to all residents to participate in for a variety of issues (Land Use & Zoning, Parks, Open Space and Trails, Transportation, Historic Signs, Arts & Culture). We meet the 1st Wednesday of every month at Sprague Library from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
If you want to keep on top of what is happening in our community from developments to fun events sign up for our monthly email newsletter. This is the best way to stay informed and participate. You will get a monthly newsletter filled with timely information and the upcoming agenda.
