Creative Industries Zone

Artists and creative people make neighborhoods interesting, and even more interesting when they end up clustering together and do some creative placemaking. That is exactly what is happening in South Salt Lake. This group is committed to retaining the unique character of this neighborhood in Downtown South Salt Lake, and helping the arts flourish and remain in their home base. The goal is to create a cultural destination, a desirable workplace location, and a unique neighborhood to live in.  

For the past two years, South Salt Lake has been working with creative professionals, civic leaders, community members and a cultural consulting group on a plan to build a Creative Industries Zone in South Salt Lake. This plan builds off of the diverse creative assets already existing in SSL, and on the strong industrial character of our city. We are so proud of what we have accomplished thus far, and grateful for the vast amount of community support and input we have received on this plan.
