Work Session- Items of Interest
The Council will:
- receive a briefing on the Mayor’s recommended budget relating to the City’s Capital Improvement Program for Fiscal Year 2012-2013. Capital improvements involve the construction, purchase or renovation of buildings, parks, streets or other physical structures. Generally, projects have a useful life of five or more years and cost $50,000 or more. Also:
- Discuss the 1300 South Viaduct – 500 West to 700 West Feasibility Study.
- Discuss other capital improvement issues and needs.
- receive a follow-up briefing regarding the process and requirements for demolition of buildings and structures. The purpose of this ordinance is to provide for timely completion of demolition and improvement of property thereafter to ensure demolition is not detrimental to the use and enjoyment of surrounding property, to avoid demolition by neglect, and to encourage preservation of the City's housing stock.
- Historic Preservation: hold a follow-up discussion regarding proposed implementation steps that will enable Salt Lake City residents and businesses to successfully engage in preservation efforts that are appropriate for their unique situations. They include:
a. Historic Preservation Fine Tuning: Changes to the City’s zoning regulations to provide clarity and efficiency for the Historic Preservation Overlay zoning regulations. (The process and criteria for establishing an historic district is currently being addressed through a separate petition.)
b. Proposed Salt Lake City Historic Preservation Plan: The Plan would be the key strategic document to guide preservation activity and inform decisions relating to budget priorities, development of incentives, master plans, zoning text and map amendments and site specific development.
c. Historic District Designation Process and Criteria: Zoning regulation changes that modify the process and adoption criteria for establishing new Local Historic District and Historic Landmark sites.
d. Character Conservation Districts: Creation of a Character Conservation Zoning District and related zoning regulations.
- hold a discussion to review Council philosophy statements. The Council met in January to discuss priority focus areas and requested that staff provide draft Philosophy Statements for review and refinement by the public. The following philosophy statements have been adopted: Economic Health of the City, Arts & Culture, Neighborhood Quality of Life and Transportation & Mobility. The remaining philosophy statements will be considered: Sustainability, Parks & Open Space, and Education.
1.Ordinance: Amend Various Sections of Title 21A (Zoning) of the Salt Lake City Code Pertaining to Land Use Appeal Authority.
Accept public comment and consider adopting an ordinance changing the City zoning regulations to clarify the role and authority of the Appeals Hearing Officer. The changes would clarify what constitutes a public hearing and public meeting and the noticing requirements of each; eliminate newspaper publication requirements; and clarify that planned developments are no longer a type of conditional use.
2.Resolution: Appropriation resolution amending the Annual Action Plans for Emergency Solutions Grant Program Funding
Accept public comment and consider adopting an appropriation resolution amending the annual action plans for Emergency Solutions Grant program funding for Fiscal Years 2011-12 and 2012-13 and approving an Interlocal Cooperation Agreement between Salt Lake City and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
3.Resolution: Council Philosophy Statement: Parks and Open Space
Accept public comment and consider adopting a resolution regarding a philosophy statement on Parks and Open Space. The Council met in January to discuss priority focus areas and requested that staff provide draft Philosophy Statements for review and refinement. Out of seven philosophy statements, the following philosophy statements have been adopted: Economic Health of the City, Arts & Culture, Neighborhood Quality of Life, and Transportation & Mobility.
4.Ordinance: Amend the Central Community Master Plan, zoning map and zoning regulations pertaining to the transit station area plans along the 400 South transit corridor.
Accept public comment and consider adopting an ordinance amending the Central Community Master Plan, zoning map and zoning regulations to reflect the proposed 400 South Livable Communities Station Area Plans. The proposal would implement land use policies for mixed use development and transportation options on the blocks adjacent to the 400 South transit corridor from 200 East to 1000 East. Properties in this corridor would be rezoned from their existing zoning classifications to the Transit Station Area (TSA) zoning districts. In addition, the proposal would establish new zoning regulations for this area.
5.Ordinance: Authorizing Opinion Questions to be Submitted to the Voters.
Accept public comment and consider adopting an ordinance authorizing opinion questions, like the “Move to Amend” initiative, to be submitted to the voters of Salt Lake City and establishing related procedures.
