SHCC Message from the Chair  

Maggie Shaw



I am so ready for Spring.. I mean really ready. I am pleased to announce that our next community council meeting we will hear a presentation on a new park. Yes! a park, not a building. This is good news. I am excited to hear about outdoor space. When I first came to the council in 2007-2008, Sally Barraclough attended a meeting and proposed the idea for a park in the Imperial Park Neighborhood. The Imperial Park Project was born. I am please to announce that our next council meeting will have a presentation of the Preferred Design for the new park located at 1560 East Atkin Avenue. This park is evidence of what a few people with a good idea and energy can accomplish. Public and private organizations worked together and now we get to see the result of this partnership. I think we will all be pleased. 

Speaking of outdoor space.. The Draw which will connect Sugar House Park to Hidden Hollow and the Sugar House Business District is almost open. June 6th is the opening. I can not wait to walk under 1300 East rather than attempting to cross it. Nothing ruins my peaceful walk in the park more than almost being run down at rush hour. But no more, I will be able to walk at my leisure under the busy road. I believe this will be a wonderful improvement to our area. This too is an example of what committed citizens can make happen. We are all better for their hard work.

While I am on the outdoor theme... It is our hope as a community council to hold a few summer meetings outdoors. Sugarmont Plaza will be the temporary meeting place this summer. More on that later when I have all the details. 

Please join the Sugar House Community Council at our April Meeting. See the Park design, learn about plans for the Sugar House Plaza. As everyone is aware Sugar House is undergoing some growing pains. I would encourage you to get involved. Come to the meetings. If you can not attend you can stay current by going to 

The website has minutes of past meetings, and a great deal of information that is useful if you are a Sugar House resident. Our council is a nonprofit organization. All of the trustees that attend meetings, reach out to Sugar House residents to keep them informed, and work to create a methods in which public and private entities are accountable for keeping Sugar House a great place to live.. do so as volunteers. All of electronic media that is used to keep you updated is paid through donations. If you are checking out the website and want to help us continue our work, please donate. It would be greatly appreciated. Please check out the website, attend a meeting, or email a trustee with a concern. We would love to hear from you,
