TECH-RELATED LAND USES TEXT AMENDMENT

Salt Lake City is experiencing rapid growth and the tech industry is a major contributor that growth. The tech industry changes rapidly and has shown the ability to change how people produce goods, how we work, how we socialize, and how we use data. The city’s zoning code doesn’t change at nearly the same rate as the tech industry and as a result has become a barrier to tech-related industries, most notably the bio-medical field of research and production of materials used in the research, diagnosis, and treatment of health-related illnesses. The purpose of this code amendment is to update the tech-related land use definitions and expand where those uses can be located in the city. This is a collaborative project between the Planning Division and the Department of Economic Development.
