SH LUZ REPORT 2022 December

SH LUZ REPORT 2022 December

The city is still working on a number of proposals. Homeless Resource Text Amendments, Affordable Housing Overlay, Housing Mitigation.  They are currently working on the Thriving in Place report, and  Anti-Displacement Framework Anti-Displacement Framework,

The Kum and Go application is on the Salt Lake City Open House Page.  You can read about it here.  We have been told that this is tentatively scheduled for a January meeting of the Planning Commission.  You can watch here on our website for details on how you can participate.  We would like to see a big crowd of folks at this meeting to express our disapproval of this proposal. Remember to make sure your comments address the Conditional Use Criteria.  This will likely be a hybrid meeting, but we think it is preferable to attend in person if you plan to speak.

The project at 1583 Stratford-ave is tentatively scheduled for the Planning Commission on January 11, 2023. We have no updated plans or anything to show you, but when we receive them, we will notify all who have commented about this project.  (Keep in mind that we have received way more comments on this project than any other in our remembered history, so if you don’t get notified, don’t take it personally!)

At the November 14 meeting of the SHCC LUZ Committee, we reviewed a petition for an ADU at 2867 E Chadwick Street.  You can review the plans here and send in a comment. Comments are due December 15.

We also reviewed a Planned Development at 2435 S 500 East.  You may recall that we were asked to review a rezone of this parcel from R 1/7000 to RMF 35, which was approved on August 16, 2022.  Now we have a proposal, known as Warnock Commons, for a planned development, consisting of 20 townhomes, four to a building.  Each building will have two 2-bedroom units and 2 3-bedroom units.  We haven’t seen a development with three-bedroom units in quite a while. You can review the details and send in a comment, I need them by December 19.

Another issue that has come up has to do with drive-through windows in the Sugar House Business District.  If you live in Sugar House, you know what I mean. The Planning Commission has initiated a petition, asking that planning staff to study the issue and come up with a recommendation.  Here is what they will be considering.  We will see a formal proposal to discuss in the near future..

The next SHCC LUZ meeting will be on December 12, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. via Zoom.  We already have three items on the agenda.

1-Planned Development for 2960 Richmond (Richmond Flats), which is currently under development.  During the process, Rocky Mountain Power made them move the building north 7 feet.  On the north side of the building, this means the project lost 21 parking stalls. To maintain the 55 stalls promised, they need approval for a smaller landscape setback on the north.  Here is the link to the new proposal.

2- Salt Lake City Schools would like an amendment of the Sign Zoning Ordinance to allow for pole signs on public and private school campuses.  You can read about the proposal here.

I am trying to get a picture of what the proposed signs would look like from the SLC School District.

3- Alley vacation at 2167 S 800 E.  The alley is too narrow for automobiles at this end and is becoming a nuisance.  Read the details here.

You can always send me an email at if you have questions you don’t see answered here.
