05 Mar Land Use and Zoning Report 2015 February
We have received the application for CVS on the NW corner of 2100 South and 1300 East. They are asking for permission to vacate a public alley. They are also requesting a re-zone of the two properties located at 2046 and 2036 South 1300 East in order to allow parking in support of the proposed retail use. The project will go from Residential Office to Community Business. This will allow the entire project to be in the same zone. We were not sent any drawings, so I need to find the latest version so that my letter will include the comments we made about the design of the building. We have also decided to ask them to move the door from the north side, the rear of the parcel to the corner of 2100 South and 1300 East. That would mean they will have to relocate the utility box in that area. Last month we were asked about new retail for Sugar House Crossing. The newest restaurant is Pot Belly Sandwiches. Another called Cubby’s will be open in about 60 days, and they are negotiating with 5 other retail tenants. We have learned that parking in the Sugar House Crossing will be $10. The Planning Commission approved the petition to amend the zoning map and future land use map for a portion of the Forest Dale Golf Course property located at 2425 South 900 East. This will then go to The parcel is currently zoned Open Space, and the Commission recommended that it be rezoned to PL-2 (Public Lands) in order to allow a new Sugar House Fire Station #3 to be built on the property. There will be a separate Conditional Use approval at a later date to allow for the parcel to be used for a Fire Station. The parcel would also have to be removed from the Open Space Inventory and then nothing could be done on the parcel for six months, and funding needs to be approved. This is one step in a long process, and many more eyes will look at this before it becomes final. There is also a proposal before theSalt Lake City Landmark’s Committee to apply to have the Forest Dale Golf Course and Club House be put on the National Historical Register. This application is being proposed by Pat Shea. If you look at the Landmarks Agenda for March, you can read the application, which contains quite a bit of interesting history about the golf course and surrounding area. I’d like to recommend that we write a letter supporting that request. There will be no March meeting of the Land Use Committee.
