Salt Lake City New Zoning Portal 

Through the efforts of Staff in Community and Neighborhoods and Public Services, a new tool is being launched that will make navigating the zoning and permitting worlds more user friendly.

OpenCounter is designed for the citizen experience. It asks the right questions, in the right order, so citizens can see the requirements, fees, and processing time that apply to their projects.  By making information available across departments, OpenCounter also helps municipalities coordinate internal workflows, and build better relationships with citizens that they serve.

Zoning Portal, will allow users to explore where different business types are permitted throughout the City.  A business Permitting Portal, will help citizens understand the specific license, permits and zoning requirements for starting a business in Salt Lake City.

The two portals will help guide citizens embarking on complex projects, like starting a new business or a renovation project, through the City's permitting requirements.  Informed by the City's planning and building regulations, the site provides a customized guide to help applicants achieve their project goals, while outlining the permits, fees and licenses that projects will need, including development impact fees.
