We have received PLNPCM2021-00431 a Text Amendment to allow Rooftop Commercial Uses in the FB-SE Zone. (LIGHT BLUE)

Bill Grodnik, owner of the property at approximately 2166 S 900 East, has submitted an application for a text amendment that would impact the FBSE zoning district citywide. The FB-SE zone currently limits commercial or nonresidential uses to the first two stories and a height of 30 feet. The proposed text amendment would allow for rooftop commercial or nonresidential uses above the two-story limitation. The proposal is to amend the text of a section of table 21A.27.040.D. The proposed amendments are shown in red.  This change would apply to every parcel in this zone.

Here is a link to the proposal. You can look to see what parcels around you might be affected.  This would allow commercial uses on the roof of buildings in this zone, so long as they are no taller than 30′.  In this case, it would be a bar on the roof.  This will apply to every parcel with this zone in the city, although currently, I believe those in LIGHT BLUE are the only ones affected.

The proposed text amendment states: “For commercial uses in the FB-SE Zone rooftop uses are allowed if the rooftop is 30 feet or less in height and it is shown that the building and rooftop have been structurally engineered to safely support the proposed rooftop use.

This will be on the agenda of the Sugar House Community Council Land Use and Zoning Committee on Monday, June 21 at 6 p.m. on Zoom.  If you fill out the comment form below, you will be sent a link for the meeting.
