The mission of the Sugar House Community Council (SHCC)
is to involve citizens in identifying issues, plans, and projects that enhance the beauty, safety, vibrancy, and human-scale character of Sugar House neighborhoods, and its businesses, historical, and natural resources. The Community Council sponsors, supports, and provides a voice on such issues to governing bodies, public and private service agencies, the community at large, and any other organization or individual that may directly affect the vitality of the Sugar House area. (SHCC By-laws, 2004.)
Sugar House is a community within Salt Lake City. Its boundaries are from 13th South to the south City limits, and from Foothill Drive to 700 East including the west City limits (Articles of Incorporation, 1975.) Everyone who resides, owns property or does business within this area is considered a member of the Community Council. The SHCC is a non-profit organization and is managed by its volunteer Board of Trustees.
The Sugar House Community Council meets regularly at 7:00 pm on the first Wednesday of every month at the Sprague Library. The next community council meeting will be Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008 at 7:00pm at the Sprague Library. The meetings are open to the public.
You can read the agenda for the upcoming meeting and the minutes of the last meeting at the Community Council website, http://www.sugarhousecouncil.com
The Sugar House Community Council hears petitions and considers issues regarding streets and traffic, new development, public health and safety, and parks and open spaces. The Council offers comments to the City’s decision-making bodies, such as the Planning Commission and the Salt Lake City Council. If you have any questions, or want to bring anything to the attention of the Community Council or the City, please let me know and I will try to help.
