The Sugar House Community Council Land Use and Zoning Committee meeting was cancelled for Monday, May 18. As far as we know, there are no new projects available to review at this time.
May 19 7:00 p.m. the City Council reviewed the request to rezone the parcel from residential to CB at 2855 Highland Drive, and remove the parcel from our Future Land Use Plan as Open Space.. The Planning Commission has already recommended approval, but the City Council has the final say. It is my understanding that some neighbors east of the project attended the public hearing, and asked for a 40’ rear setback between this development and their Planned Unit Development. There already is a 6’ grade change between the two parcels. Staff tells me that the developer has now purchased the parcel, and is planning to put townhouse or condominiums on the parcel. However, he doesn’t think he can make it work if the 40’ setback is imposed. I don’t recall hearing anyone make that request of us during our conversations.
