The Code Revision Project

CodeRevisionBanner

Several years ago, Salt Lake City embarked on a ground-breaking initiative to incorporate sustainability provisions into zoning and subdivision ordinances. The project set out to revise and expand upon existing ordinances that were out of date and/or put up barriers to sustainable city practices.

The topic areas considered include:

  • Transit-Oriented and Mixed Use Development (Ordinance adopted)
  • Urban Agriculture (Ordinances adopted)
  • Renewable Energy (Ordinances adopted)
  • Accessory Dwelling Units (Ordinance adopted)
  • Street, Pedestrian and Bicycle Connectivity
  • Water Efficient Landscape
  • Tree Protection
  • Recycling and Waste Reduction
  • Transportation Demand Management
  • Outdoor Lighting

Several ordinances have already been adopted by the Salt Lake City Council, with a the rest making progress along the approval process. Get a complete update on the project on the SLCGreen website.
