The City Is Creating A New Housing Plan & We Want To Hear From You!
2015-2019 Consolidated Plan and First-Year Action Plan

Salt Lake City’s 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan and First-Year Action Plan is the product of a collaborative process to identify housing and community development needs and to establish goals, priorities and strategies to address those needs. The plan provides a framework for maximizing and leveraging the City's block grant allocations to build healthy and sustainable communities that better focus funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) formula block grant programs, including CDBG, ESG, HOME, and HOPWA.

Historic Northwest Pipline Redevelopment Plan

The project will consist of a complete renovation of the historic Northwest Pipleine Building (also known as the former Public Safety Building) and construction of new buildings on the 2.7-acre site. Components are envisioned to include:


The development will be anchored by a mix of market-rate and affordable housing. High-quality units will expand housing opportunities for families of various incomes and sizes.

A component of the housing mix will be permanent supportive housing for individuals and families who have experienced a housing crisis. Through the permanent supportive housing model, affordable housing units are linked to supportive services to assist tenants with barriers to housing stability, thereby allowing tenants to live independently and improve the quality of their lives.


A dieverse mix of commercial space will complement and enhance the surrouding neighborhood. Commercial uses may include retail, dining, entertainment, office, and services.

Salt Lake City will be selecting a development partner to collaborate on a vibrant mixed-income, mixed-use project located at the historic Northwest Pipline Building and site, 315 East 200 South.
