Salt Lake City Corporation has pulled the proposed Homeless Resource Center at 653 Simpson Avenue from its list of future sites. There is much relief about that. At our SHCC Land Use and Zoning Committee meeting February 13, we talked at length about the conditions that should be placed on such a use, as part of the city’s request for approving this as a “conditional use”. Many in the community provided very good comments, and those will be forwarded to the city shortly, along with my letter highlighting what I see as the biggest issues. We still need to do this, because this will be part of a city wide ordinance, we want these to function well in our city, no matter where they are built.
Sego Homes Roof Garden Planned Development at 2594 S 800 East, along with a new Fuel Station at Harmon’s Brickyard, were both approved by the Planning Commission January 25.
“The Bar in Sugarhouse” has been sold to Craig Mecham and their last day was February 25. The bar will be removed right away to make way for new construction of the Dixon Building. The Dixon Building will be changing some things about their interior design, because the University of Utah Clinic is not going to be their tenant. This may be on the SHCC Land Use and Zoning meeting March 20. Dixon construction is still planned for this spring.
The Vue has sold to Berkadia 2/9/2017. This is a Berkshire Hathaway and Leucadia National Company. We are told there will be no changes in the use.
The Planning Commission approved the 21 and 21 Small Area Plan and forwarded it on to the City Council for final approval.
