Jan. 29, 2024

Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall released the City’s 2023 report, outlining the progress achieved on goals introduced in the Mayor’s 2023 Plan. From advancing environmental stewardship to harnessing the City’s growth to elevating partnerships that provide support to our most vulnerable communities, Salt Lake City continues to execute meaningful work to support current residents, future generations, employees, and the environment.

“Accountability and transparency are central to the priorities of my administration and the thoughtful work carried out by the City’s teams of dedicated public servants. The 2023 report provides valuable insight into some of the City’s incredible achievements and the momentum that continues to uplift our communities and environment,” Mendenhall said.

Of the 60 goals laid out, the City accomplished 52 and is continuing progress on eight remaining goals in 2024.

2023 achievements of note

  • Adoption of Housing SLC, a comprehensive five-year plan to address housing affordability and increase opportunities for homeownership
  • Adoption of Thriving in Place, a strategic plan to address displacement and gentrification
  • Completion of a top-to-bottom audit of water usage at every City facility to identify and eliminate inefficiencies
  • Development of a turf reduction plan for long-term water savings across all six City golf courses
  • Initiation of the Green Loop concept design, informed by community engagement, a pop-up installation, and walking tours
