[caption id="attachment_1196" align="alignleft" width="107"]Amy Barry Amy Barry[/caption] I've been hinting that Sugar House is in for more construction. We certainly have seen a few more development proposals in the last couple of months. However, the demolition of more of the Granite Block has commenced. Salt Lake City has a complicated demolition permit process. We have seen the glaring loophole in this ordinance regarding the Ute car wash remaining as an incomplete demolition on 2100 S. We are still working to gather signatures to present to the city to demonstrate the support to fix this after languishing for 20 months. Back to the Granite Block. At this time Craig Mecham has obtained permission from the city to demolish the buildings he owns within the Granite Block. We know these buildings as housing retail such as One World Gifts, Fats and Sugar House Furniture. Those will be coming down. Boulder Ventures owns the old Leisure Living building and have already started tearing that down.

Happy New Year!

[caption id="attachment_1196" align="alignleft" width="107"]Amy Barry Amy Barry[/caption] A petition has been filed to amend the master plan and rezone 8 parcels located about 1960 S 900 E. As I walked my neighborhood to deliver 200 flyers to alert neighbors about the meeting I had some good discussions.

One gentleman really struck me when he said he's lived there 30 years and seen a lot of changes and just doesn't think participating matters. Here I am schlepping around the neighborhood in the cold (and I had a nasty cold too) and I thought how disheartening. Once my head cleared from my illness I realized that I have often felt powerless and that my voice did not matter with the city. I have felt like my neighbor and I wonder what has kept spurring me on?

About 10 years ago the master plan was amended to rezone the business district to allow for the height and density we now see. Hardly anyone paid attention or participated. Maybe because they didn't know about it. Maybe because they didn't care. Maybe because they didn't believe anything would change.

[caption id="attachment_1196" align="alignleft" width="107"]Amy Barry Amy Barry[/caption] The holiday season has arrived. Whatever you enjoy celebrating I hope you find the festivities in Sugar House to be welcoming. The Sugar House Chamber has done a wonderful job of lighting both Monument and Sugarmont Plaza.  The Santa Shack is back for its 70th year of putting smiles on faces and building dreams of children. The SHCC with the wonderful donations provided throughout the year of supporters has placed a 15' tree at Monument Plaza to add to our spirit. We hope to bring back some of the holiday feeling from years christmaspast. Unfortunately we can't afford the large tree we see in the picture below, but we are excited to be a part of continuing traditions. This is a live tree and if you wish to donate to the tree fund we'll do it as many years as we can. Anyone can donate.
