SOUTH SALT LAKE — The city is working with neighbors, property owners and developers to discuss new development near the S-line streetcar stops.

The first area being discussed is the “East Streetcar” area from State Street to 500 East. A new master plan will be presented to the South Salt Lake City Council, followed by new zoning.

The other area where new homes, office space and retail are planned is in downtown South Salt Lake, from State Street to 200 West and from 2100 South to I-80. The plan will allow taller buildings and larger shopping, while the East Streetcar area is focused on what is compatible with adjacent homes and neighbors’ needs.

“We have been holding block meetings in this neighborhood and hearing what people want,” said Sharen Hauri, the city's urban design director. She said a grocery store, restaurants and extending the trail alongside the S-line are all popular ideas.

Questions on the East Streetcar Master Plan can be directed to Hauri at 801-464-6771 or shauri@southsaltlakecity.com.
