Council furthering 2017 Priorities

Since the start of the year, the Council has been building upon its 2017 priorities of homelessness/affordable housing, economic development, and infrastructure funding.

At its annual priority planning workshop earlier this year, the Council decided to carry forward last year’s priorities for 2017, with new projects, policies and funding opportunities to be acted upon throughout the year.

Actions, updates and discussions have taken place on the priorities. To get an update, check here.

Zoning regulations for Homeless Resource Centers to receive Council public hearing

The City Council will soon be asking for comments on a proposed zoning amendment involving standards for homeless resource centers.

The proposal received a favorable recommendation from the Planning Commission on March 22. A briefing before the Council and a public hearing will be scheduled in the coming months.  Learn about the proposed standards on the City’s online forum, Open City Hall.

Two homeless resource centers are being planned for Salt Lake City. This ordinance would affect the conditions, or regulations for any Center in Salt Lake City. Some features of the proposal, as passed by the Planning Commission, are:

  • Creating a definition outlining the purpose of a homeless resource center
  • Identifying homeless resource centers as a conditional use in areas that currently permit homeless shelters
  • Creating requirements that address potential negative impacts of homeless resource centers and homeless shelters

The draft ordinance is available here. In the meantime,  you also can attend any upcoming 7:00 p.m. formal meeting to address the full Council during the general comment period. Find out when the next formal meeting is here, or call 801-535-7600.

For questions, comments, and concerns please email Your input will be shared with the Mayor and Council Members.
