Capitol Park Cottages
The Council approved a request to rezone property at 675 N F Street from Foothills Residential District zoning (FR-3/12,000) to Special Development Pattern zoning (SR-1). The Council also approved a request from the property owner, Ivory Development, to amend to the “Future Land Use Map” in the Avenues Community Master Plan (1987) from “Very Low Density” to “Low Density” to correspond with their requested low-density zone.
A full description of the proposed SR-1 zone may be found in the Salt Lake City Code.
The property is currently vacant. The applicant has indicated their proposal is to construct 19 single-family homes, at least 14 of which would include Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs).
