Northpoint Small Area Plan

Northpoint Small Area Plan

Salt Lake City is working on the Northpoint Small Area Master Plan designed to guide the future development, habitat preservation, and expanded amenities within the project area. Share your feedback by taking our short survey.

Project Description

The Northpoint Small Area Plan will provide guidance on future development and use of property along 2200 West Corridor in the Northwest Planning Community of Salt Lake City.

The previous plan for the area was adopted in 2000. Since that time, the development pressure along the 2200 West Corridor has increased and the interest in annexations of adjacent unincorporated land has increased. The combined forces present a unique challenge for the city and the balancing of sometimes competing values, such as protecting the Salt Lake International Airport, preserving agricultural land and wildlife habitat, and recognizing property rights.

The new plan will:

  • Identify appropriate future land use and development characteristics of the area that can coexist with the Salt Lake City International Airport.
  • Update future annexation potential for unincorporated land in the vicinity that is within Salt Lake County.
  • Establish the justification, parameters, and needs necessary to establish a transfer of development rights program for the area.
  • Identify appropriate infrastructure requirements, including utilities and roadways, to support the future land use in the area.
  • Identify appropriate elements to support non-automobile transportation to link future employment opportunities to nearby residential areas, both inside and outside of Salt Lake City.
  • Identify appropriate buffering, building design, and development characteristics to reduce the impacts to agricultural uses, important wildlife habitat, and other uses within the corridor.
  • Recommend methods to reduce the negative impacts that future land uses may have on air quality, water quality, noise, and light.

The timeline for the development of the plan is anticipated to take approximately 12 month with a projected completion in early summer 2022.

Existing Northpoint Small Area Plan

Existing Conditions Ready for Review

Our team has been working hard over the past couple months to compile a document of existing conditions in the Northpoint Area and discuss opportunities for this area with residents, landowners, and stakeholders in the community. After the holidays, we will begin pulling together Concept Designs by evaluating existing conditions, relevant plans, input we’ve received, and best practices.

Keep an eye out for the public Round Table Discussions in February 2022!

Engagement Opportunities

Public outreach is anticipated throughout the project, with three milestones that focus on in-person events to gain feedback:

Stakeholder Interviews: mid- to late-summer 2021

A two- to three-day series of 45-minute individual/ small group meetings with property owners, City departments, public agencies and technical experts, and key developers, to review preliminary existing conditions report data, and identify key issues and opportunities for the area.

These meetings will provide key stakeholders the opportunity to comment on technical aspects for feasibility, land use mix, and policies. The meetings will also be used to begin the discussion on crucial implementation steps and anticipating potential barriers to implementation.

Public Roundtables: Winter 2022

A series of two, 1 to 1-1/2 hour small group roundtables with property owners, public agencies, key developers, and general public, to review and refine the preliminary draft concepts and frameworks.

Draft Plan Public Comment: Spring 2022

The Draft Plan will be presented to the public via digital or in-person open house to allow for public review and comment.
