Leaders from nearly all levels of Utah government announced on Tuesday, Aug. 14 a two-year plan to tackle crime & other issues in the Rio Grande area of SLC.
Led by Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox and others, the multi-agency group pledged additional support to the City to help with the problems in that part of the downtown and beyond. A concerning increase in serious crime in the Rio Grande area prompted the three phase action plan.
More law enforcement personnel were immediately deployed to the area. The three phase effort (phase graphic provided by Utah Governor’s Office) includes: restoring order, treatment, and job training. Other actions:
The City is still requesting people report damage to their homes or businesses from the July 26 storm.
The City has received more than 240 reports of damage from the severe weather. The storm resulted in more than two inches of rainfall in less than one hour during the early morning of the 26th. The torrential downpour was unprecedented in recent history; the National Weather Service called the storm a once in 200 years event
The City is working to gather enough data to justify federal participation through the Small Business Administration loan process. The first step was a Citywide Declaration of Emergency made shortly after the storm by the Mayor. Because even the SBA loan process has limitations on eligibility, the Council asked the Mayor’s Office to come back with options for how to assist those experiencing significant uninsured damage, and what those options might cost. In consultation with the Mayor’s Office, the Council Chair has scheduled a tentative follow-up discussion for September 5th.
Questions about volunteer help, clean up to public property, requests for bulky waste pickup, and more can be found by checking the contacts listed below.
Initial damage reports: 801-483-6700, choose option 1

The City Council is asking for your input on a proposed zoning amendment involving requirements for homeless resource centers.
Two new centers are being planned for Salt Lake City. This proposed ordinance would affect the conditions, or regulations for these centers. The draft ordinance is available here
A series of community meetings and other types of public engagement efforts have been conducted in the last year. That input helped to define the desires and needs of the community for these centers, and informed the requirements that will affect how they are being designed, built, and eventually operated. Please give your feedback on the requirements in a new survey on Open City Hall, the city’s online forum. It is another step to add your voice to the process.
A briefing and public hearings will be before Council in the coming months:
Work Session briefing: August 29 (time TBD)
Public Hearing #1: September 19, 7 p.m. at City Hall
Public Hearing #2: October 3, 7 p.m. at City Hall
