Car Burglaries

Neighbors,

Over the past months there have been several car burglaries in the area. On Saturday around 6:00am, a thief was confronted about looking in cars with a flashlight on Vine Street — he quickly fled. He then returned around 8:00am and was captured on video breaking into a car but unfortunately his license plate number has not yet been captured. The man drives a white SUV and has also been seen driving around the neighborhood throughout the night and into the morning.

Please keep an eye out and be sure to report any suspicious activity to 911. If your car has been burglarized and you have not already filed a police report, you can do so online at http://slcpd.com/contact-us/online-report/.

Edit: A witness has provided the following additional information about the car and suspect:

  • Drives a White Hyundai Santa Fe with only a rear license plate. No front plate.
  • Rear windows are tinted dark
  • Rims are silver
  • No spare tire on the trunk door
  • The driver is nearly 6 ft tall, skinny, darker skin (maybe mexican or persian). He has a narrow, long nose and little to no visible hair on his head.

September Council Meeting

Good Afternoon …

Just a reminder that our September Capitol Hill Neighborhood Council meeting will be this Wednesday, September 17th at 6:30 p.m. in Room 240 of the Utah State Capitol Building. We will NOT be meeting in the Copper Room as we have done in the past.

We will be discussing the updates on the South Davis Corridor Transportation Project which was initiated over twelve months ago and is now working its way to the City Council. It has critical implications for our neighborhood because the main corridor from South Davis into Salt Lake City is our neighborhood’s 300 West/400 West corridor. There WILL be impacts on our neighborhood.

We will also be getting an update from the RDA regarding the development on 300 West between 500 North and 600 North. Requests for concepts have gone out and we’ll be hearing about the responses.

Also, we’ll be having candidates for the At-Large County Council seat, the District 1 County Council seat and our District 3 School Board candidates all come and speak as well as be available for questions. In October, we’ll have the State Senate and Legislative candidates speak to us.

Please come!! This is an important meeting as we, once again, take up transportation and development issues that will affect our community.

Thanks. Hope to see you on Wednesday.

Please find attached the updated report for the 300 West Median Improvements.  You will recall from our previous meetings and Bulletin that the SLC RDA, SLC Transportation and UDOT are working together to create improved streetscapes for our neighborhood at 300 West.  These updates will contain traffic information, lane closures and other news so we, as a neighborhood, will know what to expect.  We’ll continue to post these weekly updates through end of construction which is expected in December, 2014.

We’ll look forward to these improvements to our neighborhood.

Thanks!
