Feedback requested about requirements for SLC homeless resource centers
Welcome to the survey on requirements for Homeless Resource Centers in SLC! A vote on this issue could be taken before the end of the year.
ADOPTED. On November 21, 2017 the Council adopted a zoning text amendment relating to Homeless Resource Centers, which includes requirements the centers must comply with in order to operate in the City.
Two new Homeless Resource Centers (HRCs) are being planned for Salt Lake City. The City Council is considering requirements that HRCs must comply with so that they are built and operate in a responsive and orderly way, making them positive additions and responsive to the neighborhoods.

These requirements are in the form of a proposed ordinance and would affect the conditions, or regulations for these types of centers. Read the latest Council Staff Report.
Read the ordinance:
- Updated version of ordinance with changes noted. *
- Latest ordinance version with all changes incorporated *
* Note: The proposal, as of 10/17, now modifies the landscape buffer requirements for the facilities. The Council may adopt an updated proposal at the Nov. 21 Council Meeting. At the Council's 10/17 Work Session, Council Members discussed the proposal. See Oct. 17 Work Session here and click on “interactive/video.”
A series of community meetings and other types of public engagement efforts have been conducted in the last year. That input helped to define the desires and needs of the community for these Centers, and informed the requirements that will affect how they are being designed, built, and eventually operated. The survey (see the blue button below) is another step in adding your voice to the process.
The new HRCs is a topic that affects all City residents and the public, regardless of how close to the new sites you are. Please consider the importance of the new buildings and service model, and be involved in this process; it’s one that affects our whole community. Two Public Hearings have been held.
Please click on the survey link
and tell us your opinion of the proposed ordinance, and whether it addresses concerns about neighborhood safety, amenities, and programming.
