Fire Station #3 Update
Bob Silverthorn-Challenges this summer with the heat, excessive drought, and flash flooding issues. Have had some heat related injuries on the fire ground. Remind people drink plenty of water, stay hydrated, limit time outside. Responded to 70 fire related incidents last month, 189 medicals (year to date 1407). California is blowing up so we have had crews out there most of the summer. We continue to be impacted by COVID 19, over 80% of our fire employees have been fully vaccinated. We wear masks in public. We have adapted really well. Not sure when we will return to in person activities or tours. Props to the ban on city fireworks, helped reduce firework related fires. Thanks to the community for their support
Community Liaison Tim Cosgrove
SLC mayor used her executive powers to issue an order for masks to be worn in K-12 schools. Today SLC released the application for the CIP (Capital Improvement Projects) applications. Grass roots at it’s finest. Led by citizen requests. Application closes September 30th. Once application is turned in, the constituent will work with city employees on that application over the next few months. Tiny home design competition is ongoing until the end of October. Cash prize for winning designs.
Michael G.’s Spotlight on Business
Misty from Mindful Living and Wellness Center on 1100 East and 1592 South. We have infrared Red Therapy, Massage, Floating Tanks, Meditation Gardens and Yoga. Holistic Wellness Center. We started a few weeks before the shutdown so we have had to pivot but things are going well. Thank you for the community support. Our business is in a house that was built in 1912, most of the furnishing from the Sugar House Antique Store.
Mark Issac with 24 hour Update
Demolition has begun on the old 24 hour building. The application we are looking at tonight is the larger market rate building where the old 24 hour building once stood. We are working with the city for a complete street. Will be building both buildings at the same time. Both buildings are serviced by underground parking. We are using the opportunity to use the extra height which we can in the Sugar Business District 1. Check out the plans at sugarhousecouncil.org under Land Use
Sally Barraclough-Urban Forester and Mayor’s Office has asked to help with parking strip Tree Watering. We thought each trustee can be responsible for their area in reminding people to water their trees in the park strip in particular the ones with green bags. The city is backing off these bags so asking people to take these bags off. We have some flyers printed talking about this process, Landon has them for those interested.
We have also brought in an Allen Park subcommittee into our POST committee
