Verizon Wireless –2066 South 2100 East At the LUZ meeting April 18 , we had a presentation and the land use committee agreed to forward a favorable recommendation to the Planning Commission for an (antenna) on the top of the building at NW corner of 2100 South and 2300 East (Former Great Harvest location). The utility box will be at the rear of the building, and this antenna will be about 10 feet high and barely visible from the street. The LUZ took a vote and decided that this was straightforward and did not need to come to the SHCC for a presentation. I have written a letter to the Planning Commission recommending approval.
SH Fire Station #3 – I think we will be able to have a discussion with the city to explain our position that the new Fire Station design needs to look more like the traditional Sugar House, so it fits into the neighborhood better. The planner has asked to come and address the Sugar House Community Council at the June meeting, and there may be other opportunities to make an impact.

3120 Richmond Street – The request was to rezone the parcel from RO Residential Office to CB. The Planning Commission voted to forward a negative recommendation to the City Council. The planner said that Richmond Street and 3300 South would have a light rail stop and the higher zoning was warranted. This came out of the Wasatch Front Regional Council Plan, and is planned for some 30 years from now.
