South Salt Lake needs to clear the way for the East Streetcar Corridor, and that means changing the zoning in the area from Single Family Residential to allow other developments. The corridor currently would affect homes and properties along roughly 2200 South, between the east side of State Street and the west side of 500 East.

Roll up your sleeves and head to this meeting to see the blueprint for your city. On the agenda is a presentation for Plan Salt Lake, which is analyzing future growth in the city. Planners will discuss approving Avenues Proper as a social club—meaning guests 21 and over could be served beer and liquor without ordering food—and will also consider approving an emergency homeless-youth shelter at the Volunteers of America Youth Center at 888 S. 400 West.
