At the May 11 Planning Commission, we had three items of interest to Sugar House residents:

  • Sugar House Heights (2660 S Highland Drive) -There were some modifications to the design and materials of this home. The Planning Commission approved the changes. For details, you can find information here.
  • Modifications to The Harvey 501 E 2700 South. A Planned Development was approved by the Planning Commission in February of 2022. They were asking for changes to the design and materials. You can read the report here.
  • Affordable Housing Incentives – If you go to our website discussion of this item, you can read about the issues. This is all about adding housing, and affordable housing.  There are no controls in place, no way to enforce the ordinance, everything will be over the counter without community input, and now that we pointed out that UTA changes their high frequency bus routes regularly, they changed the language so this could be done in just about the entire city.

The proposed ADU at 617 E Driggs Avenue was approved by the Planning Commission April 27.

We have been notified again about the Electric Vehicle Readiness proposal. The city would like all new multi-unit apartments to have infrastructure built in as they are built, so the charging stations can be ready for use in the future.  Most new buildings are putting these in already.  If you would like to make a comment, you can go here.  You can read about the proposal and add a comment. This should be before the Planning Commission soon.

The city is proposing a complete overhaul of the Accessory Dwelling Unit Ordinance.  Here is a link that will fill you in on what is going on.

The apartment building on Stringham, at the former Shopko Block, is now finished and open.

Izzy South, and the TwentyOnes are both under construction.

For the June 20 Land Use Committee (LUZ) at 6 pm via Zoom, we have two items so far.

  • ADU at 2156 S Oneida Street, read the details here.
  • Accessory Dwelling Units – Updates – you can find that here.
