Salt Lake proposal could define, create more neighborhood pubs
SLC » Becker’s 2009 proposal is on table.

The east side of 1300 East between 200 South and 300 South would be ideal for a pub, she noted. But presently, zoning on that block allows for much larger businesses.

"We’d like something that brings a 9th [East] and 9th [South] feel," she said. "We don’t want a strip mall."

The reasoning behind allowing pubs and restaurants in neighborhood commercial areas is that they bring a vibrancy, said City Councilman Kyle LaMalfa.

"It’s about activating our business nodes and making restaurants a viable part of our business community," he said.

The impact to neighborhoods won’t be dramatic, LaMalfa said.

"My sense of the objections is that it’s from people who don’t like alcohol at all."

No date has been set for a vote on the proposal.
