Streetcars are returning to Salt Lake City!
With the Sugar House Streetcar (now called the S-Line) opening on December 8, Salt Lake City is exploring a vision for streetcars in the downtown core.
A public open house has been scheduled to share ideas and educate residents on the current proposed streetcar routes.

A new community gathering space is coming to the heart of Sugar House!
The Redevelopment Agency of Salt Lake City (RDA) invites the public to attend the grand opening celebration of Sugarmont Plaza this Friday, June 14 from 6-9 p.m. at the former Deseret Industries Sugar House location, 2227 S. Highland Drive. The family-friendly event will feature music and food, as well as tours of the project.
Sugarmont Plaza is a new urban gathering spot that features a colorful plaza surface, murals, tables, chairs and umbrellas available to the public.
What’s in store for the space? Food truck rallies, music events, free movie screenings and casual gatherings are all planned in the coming months.
“Sugarmont Plaza activates a part of Sugar House currently undergoing significant change,” said Mark Morris of the nonprofit Friends of the South Salt Lake and Sugar House Streetcar. “We hope many events will be held here this summer, encouraging community members to consider how valuable public space is to them.”
