SH LUZ REPORT 2021 April

SH LUZ REPORT 2021 April

On the March 15 LUZ meeting, we discussed 1844 and 1852 E 2700 South Planned Development. This is in the R-1/12000 zone. The petitioners want to divide these two lots and make a third lot of approximately the same size, in the rear of one of the homes. There was much discussion. LUZ was told that we didn’t distribute the flyers to the entire subdivision, so we did a second distribution after the LUZ meeting March 15. I have two more weeks before my letter is due. You can read details about the project here and provide a comment using the form below.

 We have had many questions about the small cell antennas (5G) that are being installed in the park strips in our neighborhoods.  Andrew Johnston, Salt Lake City Council wrote a summary of the regulations, which you can read here.  We apparently don’t have a lot of say in these, because there are state and Federal regulations that trump our city regulations.  And, each provider could install their own tower in the park strip.

Do you have an Air BnB operating in your neighborhood? These are not allowed in Salt Lake City, but we all know they are happening everywhere. The Legislature passed a bill that the city cannot go on line and look for an Air BnB and then go after them. But, if a citizen complains, the city is obligated to investigate and enforce against the violator. Here is the link if you have an iphone.

1583 Stratford Ave.  This was a request to rezone this parcel from RMF-35 (Moderate Density Multi-Family Residential) to CN (Neighborhood Commercial).

Architectural Nexus They came to our land use meeting in January. They want to build ADUs on their business site, which is not an allowable use in the CB zone.  So, they are requesting a text amendment to do this in a small designated portion of their property a 2545 E Parley’s Way. We now have the official request from the city which is described here.  We do not plan to have this on our LUZ agenda again, most everyone was in favor of the proposal and has worked out the noise issues with the petitioner.

You can still provide a comment via our website.

The next Land Use and Zoning meeting will be Monday, April 19 at 6 p.m. via Zoom.  Who knows what wonderful project will be before us at that time? Stand by.
