February 2016 Chair Report[caption id="attachment_1196" align="alignleft" width="107"] 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.
