21st and 21st Small Area Master Plan - On August 12, the Planning Staff will provide the Planning Commission an update on the 21st and 21st Small Area Master Plan. The project includes an area stretching along 2100 South from approximately 2000 East to 2300 East. The small area master plan will address the characteristics of the future development of this neighborhood. The goal of this plan is to create an improved and beautified business district that is a unique destination but still remains compatible in scale with nearby neighborhoods. The plan will establish guidelines for private development, public spaces such as sidewalks, park strips and streets. The plan is currently finishing up the data gathering stage and is moving towards scenario development. (Staff contact John Anderson (801) 535-7214 or john.anderson@slcgov.com )

2855 Highland Drive Rezone.  The City Council passed a motion that approved the rezone of the small parcel from  R 1/7000 to CB, with the condition that the applicant enters into a development agreement with the City that requires the following:
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.
