Where would you like to see the Sugar House Streetcar go?It’s almost time to decide the route the Sugar House Streetcar will take and the Salt Lake City Councilwants to know where you think it should go. There’s already a streetcar line under construction that will connect South Salt Lake and SugarHouse, but the project ends at McClelland Street near Fairmont Park. The question is where the lineshould extend from there.After completing an extensive study and talking with residents and business owners who live in theSugar House area, Mayor Becker’s Administration has proposed a possible route. The recommendation is that the line extend east from the current tracks to Highland Drive, then northto the Sugar House Monument at 2100 South Street. Tracks would then be built north along 1100East Street to 1700 South Street. But the study includes other options, including building a streetcarline east on 2100 South to 1700 East Street near Highland High School. Keep in mind that there’s the potential for the City to change zoning regulations to allow for largerresidential and commercial buildings along the streets if the line runs either north along 1100 EastStreet or east along 2100 South.Whichever way it goes, the line will become part of a streetcar network linking the entire city toneighborhoods and the regional light-rail system.So where do you think it should? And what do you think about the potential for larger residential andcommercial buildings in certain areas? The City County wants to hear from you.
