At Tuesday’s meeting, the Salt Lake City Council:
- adopted a proposal to allow Accessory Dwelling Units, commonly known as mother-in-law apartments, in more parts of the City. The Council held and closed a public hearing at which 14 people spoke, before approving the ordinance in a 5-1-1 vote. Learn more about the ordinance here.
- held and closed a public hearing and adopted a resolution allocating funding for the Capital Improvement Program. CIP projects involve the construction, purchase or renovation of buildings, parks, streets and other physical structures. Each year, the Council reviews a list of prioritized projects and allocates available funding. More than 20 constituents addressed the Council during the public hearing.
- discussed a proposal that would require commercial animal retailers to obtain the dogs, cats, and rabbits they sell from animal shelters and similar agencies. The Council will take action on this topic at a later date.
- discussed an ordinance that would amend the City’s zoning code relating to the inland port to bring it in line with state code requirements. The proposal provides the zoning framework that will facilitate development of the port while adhering to the City’s master plans for the City’s northwest quadrant. The Council will hold hearings on November 13 and November 27 before taking action, likely in early December.
