City leaders to release possible homeless shelter sites on November 21.
Following the announcement, the City will host a series of public engagement workshops the week of November 28, 2016 to gather public feedback on the design of the resource centers, potential community impacts of the centers, and suggestions for mitigating those impacts. This feedback will be critical to the design and architecture process. Read more.
At their October 25 meeting, the Council via straw poll requested an ordinance to extend the impact fee moratorium until new impact fees are in effect. The current moratorium is set to expire November 2. Learn more.
It’s clear that Salt Lake City – along with much of the county – is in a housing crisis.
City Council Members (who also serve as the Board of Directors of the City’s Redevelopment Agency, or RDA) are laser-focused on making a big impact to address this critical issue.
To do this, Council Members are combing through the City’s budgets, particularly the RDA budget, to identify unused or underutilized money that can be reallocated for housing initiatives. The decision to fund housing that the city’s workforce can afford does not mean the Council/Board is withdrawing support for other RDA projects. The Council/Board has scheduled public hearings about what to do with the rest of the RDA Budget for November 1 at 7:00 p.m. and November 15 at 2:00 p.m.
Here is what the City Council (RDA Board) is doing to fund Affordable Housing: View the Fact Sheet.
