As of June 26th, face coverings are now a requirement across Salt Lake County. Wearing a face covering correctly is one of the easiest things we can do to help our local businesses and neighbors successfully weather this challenging time.
In Salt Lake County, face coverings will be required:
- At public gatherings, indoor or out, where consistent social distancing is not possible.
- While waiting outside or inside retail and other public locations, including bars and restaurants until seated.
Face coverings will not required:
- Outdoors when social distancing is easily maintained.
- On a person with a health condition exacerbated by a face covering.
- On children under 2 years old.
- When wearing a face covering would prevent the performance of the essential functions of a person’s job or work.
- In circumstances not reasonably conducive to wearing a face covering, such as while swimming or engaging in strenuous physical activity.
The goal of the requirement is not to penalize anyone; the goal is to send a strong, clear message about the gravity of our current COVID circumstances and the importance of face coverings in effectively addressing this concerning data.
The Glendale Community Council is offering reusable, durable masks for residents. You can request yours by completing the following survey and a volunteer will drop a mask off at your doorstep with no contact required.
These reusable masks can be sanitized and are durable to last a while. Supplies are limited. Completing the form is confidential and provides us with the information we need to deliver the masks.
The Glendale Community Council is beginning a neighborhood wide planning project to develop a comprehensive visioning document for the neighborhood. Called the One Glendale Plan, this document will act as a strategic planning document for the community council and be used to provide a comprehensive outline for Salt Lake City to invest in the neighborhood.
Throughout the past several years, a variety of recurring issues have been brought to the community council’s attention. Taken individually, each of the issues appears unconnected. When viewed as part of a set of neighborhood wide problems, the issues can be connected to systemic issues that require a comprehensive plan.
The development of new assets such as the Three Creeks Confluence and the deterioration of existing resources such as the Raging Waters property and Bend in the River presents new opportunities for developing neighborhood cohesion. In addition, regular issues tied to pedestrian access, safe routes to school, and the overall car-centric design of Glendale regularly present issues that affect neighborhood cohesion.
In addition, residents regularly express interest in new assets such as pickleball courts, basketball facilities, improved park amenities, and more public artwork. Decisions about these assets are often zero sum with residents asked to choose between existing resources i.e. tennis courts being replaced by pickleball courts. Rather than choose between one or the other, we envision a process where resident-driven leadership identifies ways to add to existing amenities without removing the existing amenities.
Through this process, we are proposing to undergo strategic visioning and activation activities that will unite the neighborhood and create a shared vision for the future of our neighborhood. We are committed to inclusion that intentionally reaches communities and neighbors who are often unrepresented in community planning activities.

The community council board of directors has finished our final report on the Bend in the River Urban Treehouse survey and have responded directly to the Trails & Natural Lands Division. Our final report is attached for your review.
The community council requested that Salt Lake City delay removal of the Urban Treehouse until we had the opportunity to conduct a survey of our community. Our community has completed the survey, which was available for responses from May 1 – 15, 2020. We have included the data from the survey with this letter.
The overwhelming majority of residents oppose removing the Urban Treehouse and as a result, the Glendale and Poplar Grove Community Councils formally requested that Salt Lake City not take any action to remove the Urban Treehouse at this time.
We understand that the area is concerning to many residents, as was reflected in the survey results. As a result, the Glendale Community Council is beginning a formal community visioning process that we are calling the One Glendale Plan. During this visioning process, we will develop a comprehensive activation plan for the Bend in the River area and build consensus among residents for the future of the site.
