Funding Our Future housing programs are one part of Growing SLC. Do you know about this plan? Back in December of 2017, the Salt Lake City Council voted unanimously to adopt Growing SLC: A Five-Year Housing Plan 2018-2022. This was the first housing plan for Salt Lake City since 2000. The plan outlines a strategy for ensuring long-term affordability and preservation that continues to enhance neighborhoods while balancing their unique needs. Moreover, it considers that as we grow, we must build thoughtfully, in a way that is sustainable, equitable and durable. Growing SLC lays out a number of comprehensive solutions and policies like updates to zoning regulations and increasing homeownership opportunities. Right now, the City Council is considering numerous zoning changes related to housing. Learn more about the 2020 Growing SLC Annual Report here.
Mayor Mendenhall and the City Council are working jointly to move full speed ahead on several fronts at once to address racial equity in policing.
