South Salt Lake is a small city with big opportunities. We are a place where people get their start – buy their first home, open their first business, and often, arrive here from another state or country. We are a dynamic and diverse community, and pride ourselves on our welcoming and hard-working attitudes.
The City has long been “a City On The Move” — leading the way in a growing and changing Utah economy. We decided a decade ago that South Salt Lake could and should become a destination with a downtown and walkable urban core. To that end, we have fostered the development of Downtown SSL, a streetcar neighborhood and a Creative Industries Zone. This is bringing more amenities, shopping and dining to our residents and businesses.
With 25,000 residents and over 2,100 businesses, South Salt Lake is small-- but mighty. We are an original mixed-use community and take advantage of our location along major thoroughfares, the light rail with commercial buildings ripe for renovation, and a wide mix of businesses and properties at various price points. Our focus today is on infill housing, redeveloping industrial properties into higher and better uses, and supporting walking, biking and transit to connect it all. Even as things change, we remain a tight-knit community where people know their neighbors, support local businesses and enjoy parks, trails and open spaces together.
I invite you to check out our community and find your opportunity!
