Thank you to the Sugar House Chamber for their work to pull off this festival and fApollo Burger for returning as the lead sponsor to bring you the fireworks! We celebrate Independence Day and our freedom, but I am left wondering how engaged we are in the rights and freedom we are afforded. Salt Lake City has a primary election for Mayor this year and an estimated 20% of registered voters will actually vote. We celebrate the independence and freedom on the 4th of July as an honored tradition. Yet, too many citizens are not engaged in electing our leaders.

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.
