1945 South 1300 East Zoning Map Amendment

1945 South 1300 East Zoning Map Amendment

UPDATE: The City Council denied the request to Rezone this parcel.

UPDATE:   The City Council has a public hearing on November 16 at 7 p.m. to get public feedback on the rezone of this property.  This is the SHCC letter and comments written for this project. Here is the STAFF REPORT given to the City Council, before they had their work session October 19. Prior to the Public Hearing by the City Council on November 16, they will be given a larger packet that includes the Planning Commission staff report and any other material they may be given. (see below)

UPDATE:  This was on the Planning Commission Agenda July 14, 2021 at 5:30 p.m. Here is the packet sent to them that includes our letter and neighborhood comments.  Here is the STAFF REPORT, recommending approval.  The Planning Commission approved the rezone, which needs to go to City Council for final approval.

HERE IS THE City Council LINK TO THE PAGE FOR THE NOVEMBER 16 MEETING.  THE PROJECT IS NOT YET POSTED, BUT SHOULD BE POSTED AT LEAST 24 HOURS BEFORE THE MEETING.  YOU CAN READ EXACTLY WHAT IS GIVEN TO THE CITY COUNCIL. If I see it posted sooner I will try to put the exact pages you want to read because these packets can be hundreds of pages long.


The applicant, Max Chang, representing American Estate Management Corp., the property owner, is requesting to amend the zoning map for a property located at approximately 1945 South 1300 East. The proposal would rezone the entire property from RMF-35 (Moderate Density Multi-Family Residential) to RMF-45 (Moderate/High-Density Multi-Family Residential). The proposed amendment to the Zoning Map is intended to accommodate a new multi-family residential development and will potentially provide a total of 46 residential units.

Here is the proposal for the rezone.  It also includes plans for a building, but that will not be part of our discussion.  Our conversation will be whether or not changing the zone is the right thing for this parcel, and whether it complies with the Sugar House Master Plan, and other city policies.  The Planning Commission will make a recommendation to the City Council about this.  Should the City Council approve the rezoning, then we might see the plans for the parcel, if it needs some special exceptions.


This was on our SHCC Land Use and Zoning Zoom last May If you want to put a comment in the form for the City Council hearing on November 16, you can use the form and I will make sure that they receive it before the meeting.
