Salt Lake City

COUNCIL: August 27 Council and RDA Board Meeting

At Tuesday’s meetings:

  • the RDA Board approved the final step of a development agreement from January 2018 between the City and NWQ, LLC. Read the Press Release here.

  • the Council adopted the $34.5 million Capital Improvement Program (CIP) funding allocations. This funding is for citywide community projects that improve public property (such as streets, sidewalks, parks and buildings), typically have a service life of five or more years, and cost $50,000 or more. Some funded projects include:
    • $3.4 million for improvements to Pioneer Park. Specific improvements to the park will be informed by public input over the next year.
    • $858,000 to fully-fund the partial restoration of the Seven Canyons Fountain in Liberty Park. The project will address health and safety code issues that contributed to the fountain being closed.
    • $1.3 million to redevelop the Fisher Carriage House along the Jordan River into a nature center, Parks & Public Lands Division office space, and will host recreation programs such as kayak rentals. 
    • $500,000 for McClelland Street improvements. These improvements would extend the McClelland Trail to Fairmont Park and the S-Line Streetcar. McClelland Street will be considered a shared street as it accommodates vehicles, bikes and pedestrians.
  • the Council approved up to $20 million from the voter-approved $87 million Streets Reconstruction bond to be used for reconstructing major and local residential streets. This is the first of three expected issuances of the $87 million bond as part of the Funding Our Future initiative. 
  • the Council approved a joint resolution with the Mayor establishing a community renewable energy goal for Salt Lake City, a first step in a multi-year process to achieve a net-100% renewable electricity portfolio by 2030.
  • the Council held and closed a number of public hearings.
  • the Council interviewed and approved multiple appointments to various City boards.
