Investing in Our Future
As South Salt Lake’s Mayor, I am committed to investing in the future of our small city with big opportunities. Many developers, businesses, and investors are currently looking for opportunities in our new downtown and neighborhoods, and they know we are the place to be! Still, as our population increases, we need to invest in our public works and infrastructure to meet the demand and to become a modern hub for business and development.
We are also investing in our community’s youth — who represent the future of our City. Through Promise South Salt Lake and our network of community centers, our youngest residents can meet lifelong friends, advance their education, and explore valuable career paths.
And above all, we are investing in our own community and lives. As we expand and improve our public parks and trails, add bike lanes to our streets, and plant trees throughout our yards and green spaces, we are building an inviting and safe home for both longtime residents and new additions to our community.
Thank you for being a part of our City on the Move!

What's Next for the Historic Scott School property?
South Salt Lake owns and maintains the historic property at the northeast corner of 500 East and 3300 South. The former school is a city landmark and we are making plans to continue to preserve and improve the buildings while adding more arts, cultural and community programs. In May of 2021, the city made a change to no longer allow a long-term tenant to occupy a large portion of the campus. For more information, see my Statement on Historic Scott School and the eviction of Pioneer Craft House.
