City Seeks Public Input on Parley’s Way Corridor Plan

Salt Lake City’s Planning Division invites residents and users of Parley’s Way to help shape the future of one of the Capital City’s busiest travel corridors.

Parley’s Way has long been identified as an important gateway into Salt Lake City and regular users have expressed their interest in enhancing the safety, efficiency and aesthetics of the corridor for pedestrians, cyclists, drivers and transit riders. The City’s Planning Division is requesting public input to shape the Parley’s Way Corridor Plan.

Participants will have the opportunity to weigh-in on four focus areas:

  • Transportation
  • Neighborhood Connectivity
  • Land Use
  • Streetscape Design

You can participate in the Parley’s Way Corridor Plan survey by visiting www.slcgov.com/opencityhall.

SLC Seeking Comments on Proposed Business Recycling Ordinance

Did you know? The waste diversion rate for Salt Lake City homes hovers around 38%. This means that roughly 38% of all waste collected through the City’s residential collection program is recycled or composted.

Now compare that to the estimated 10% diversion rate for Salt Lake City businesses.

In an effort to increase business and multi-family (i.e. apartment) recycling rates, Salt Lake City is proposing a new Business & Multi-Family Recycling Ordinance that would require property owners or managers where 4 or more cubic yards of solid waste are generated per week to:

  • Subscribe to a recycling collection service from an authorized waste hauler.
  • Designate area(s) for recycling containers.
  • Implement a recycling program for use by occupants, employees or residents that is as convenient as trash collection.
  • Distribute educational recycling information to occupants, employees or residents annually.
