City of South Salt Lake


Add To My Quick Links


The Urban Livability Department handles code enforcement, animal services, and several other urban improvement programs throughout South Salt Lake. Our efforts have helped create a city that is inviting to new business developers, as well as a safe and attractive home for our many residents. Our department is run by a small and dedicated team of personnel, well-qualified to take on the challenges of this job.

What We Do

Our department takes a proactive approach to several known and ongoing challenges and improvement opportunities throughout South Salt Lake. Since the department was established (2010), we have split into three central divisions:

  1. Code Enforcement
  2. Community Connection
  3. Graffiti Prevention

Each of these divisions does its part to resolve issues around our city and to improve the quality of life for current and future residents and business owners.

In addition to these services, our department also oversees the Utility Box Art Program, where local artists add beautiful art to utility boxes scattered throughout South Salt Lake and the Beautiful Yard & Street Award Program.  Anyone can nominate a beautiful yard and city street.
