Cities and neighborhoods are constantly changing. In some places, the changes are slight and hardly noticeable. In others, change can be dramatic. The third event in the Summer Planning Series takes us to the Sugar House Business District, a place that has seen dramatic change over the last 10 years.
The walking tour will discuss the goals of the Sugar House Community Master Plan and the unique public spaces that help make the neighborhood one of the most desirable and livable in Utah. City planners will discuss the history of zoning in the business district and how it has shaped the development of a mixed-use “24/7” neighborhood.
The tour will stop by some of the great places in the Sugar House Business District as well as some of the more high-profile developments and changes, such as the S-Line, McClelland Trail, and Sugar House Monument Plaza. We will discuss how land use, transportation, public spaces, and development practices have changed over the years and how tools like zoning, design guidelines, and funding sources like tax increment financing are used to create active, comfortable, and livable places.
