UPDATE:  The Planning Commission voted to forward a positive recommendation to the City Council for the rezone.  City Council has the final decision-making power for a rezone. The rezone to RMF 35 was approved in 2020.

This was on the Planning Commission Agenda May 13,  2020.  Here is the staff report:  http://www.slcdocs.com/Planning/Planning%20Commission/2020/00054_00053StaffReport.pdf  Here is the letter and comments sent to the Planning Commission May 7, 2020   2903 Letter to PC with flyer and comments

We have a request to review the proposal to amend the Sugar House Master Plan and the Sugar House Zoning Map so the entire parcel at 2903 Highland Drive is in the CB zone.  The parcel on the east is currently R1/7000 (Single-Family Residential) and would be changed to CB (Community Business). The petitioner is then proposing to build a future development, shown above.  We are not being asked to review the development, that may come later.  If the rezone is approved and the petitioner submits a proposal, we would review if it needs any special exemptions.  If the project meets the zoning code and needs no exceptions, it would not come to us for review.

Please read the proposal below, and give us your feedback using the comment form. We will send comments along with our letter to the Planning Commission.  This proposal may be on the agenda of the Sugar House Community Council Land Use and Zoning Committee April 20 at 7 p.m.  This will be a virtual meeting. If you provide a comment, we will give you the link to join the meeting using Zoom.

If we don’t get any comments, we may not put this on the agenda, we have 7 Land Use items for that hour, and it is impossible to do them all.
