Land Use and Zoning: Judi Short
Allow ADUs citywide, rather than based on a boundary area or proximity to a fixed transit stop
Make ADUs a conditional use in the FR (Foothill Residential District) and R-1 (Single Family Residential) zoning districts. These are the zoning districts that only allow detached single family dwellings.

Require properties with ADUs to have a deed restriction stating that an owner must occupy the property.
Provide different design standards for Attached and Detached ADUs.
Amend the wording of some standards for clarity.

Nancy Monteith, Landscape Architect – Salt Lake City Public Lands
Nancy provided an update on the next phase of improvements at Fairmont Park. Lighting improvements and looped paths are planned.

Laura Hanson, Director of Planning – UTA Sugar House Update
The S-Line route questions are being looked at again because of changes in the community and the incorporation of Millcreek. Some original routes may not be needed. A grant for a new study is being applied for by Salt Lake City.
UTA is seeking input from the community on what priorities should be funded. Because there is a limitation on resources, a balance must be struck between coverage and frequency. A series of community engagement meetings are planned called the Service Choices Process beginning in January and continuing through May. UTA is seeking the help of the Community Council to get the word out about the process.

Nancy Volmer, Airport Director of Marketing and Public Relations – SLC Airport
SLC Airport ranks 1# for on-time departures. Also the 3rd fastest growing in the country. The airport needs to be replaced because it can’t be renovated, especially when seismic standards. It was never planned to be a hub. The configuration of gates is restrictive and 30 gates do not have jet bridges. The new airport will have more international gates, seats, restrooms, and restaurants. It was built for 10 million passengers, not the 25 million expected.
New airport will meet LEED Gold Standards.
No local tax dollars are being used. A combination of cash and bonds are being used.
There will be three phases:
- 2020 – 1st Phase
