At our March 20 LUZ meeting, we discussed the following:

Sight Distance Triangle, which has to do with having clear vision zone areas at each intersection of streets, driveways and streets, and driveways and sidewalks.  It also includes the regulation of fences, walls, and hedges, and this will add other structures, including buildings.

Drive-Through Uses in the Sugar House Business DistrictThe amendment would prohibit drive throughs in the Sugar House Business District zones (CSHBD1 and CSHBD2). I don’t believe it will take away any existing drive throughs, but will prohibit new ones.

Landscaping and Landscape Buffers.  This will initiate implementation of the Urban Forest Action Plan. It will make the chapter more user friendly, talk about best practices for improved compliance and conservation, reduce unnecessary water consumption by requiring water wise and drought tolerant landscaping choices, and many other things.
