Street Closure

700 N Partial Street Closure

Petition Number: PLNPCM2020-00147

Salt Lake City has received a petition from property owner Bethany Christensen requesting that the City close a portion of the 700 N right-of-way in front of two properties located at 1612 W 700 N and 1614 W 700 N respectively. One property is currently zoned CB (Community Business) while the other is zoned R-1/5000 (Single-Family Residential). The applicant would like to vacate the large triangular easement located in front of the subject properties in order to purchase the vacated area and incorporate the land into the adjacent parcels. The total area that is proposed to be vacated is approximately 5,658 square feet (0.13 acres) in size and it has not been developed.
