The Glendale neighborhood, through the Glendale Community Council has approved a new community plan designed to promote civic engagement and community improvement.
Residents of Glendale voted at the May 19th meeting of the Glendale Community Council to approve a new plan, called the One Glendale Plan. The plan addresses several topics of community interest and outlines recommendations for how the community council engage residents to address issues.
The One Glendale Plan is the result of a yearlong planning process led by Lily Marie Oswald and Brandon Siracuse, students from the University of Utah who led the planning process during an internship with the Glendale Community Council. As a result of their work on the project, Lily and Brandon received the 2021 Best Professional Project Award from the Department of City and Metropolitan Planning at the University of Utah.
Hi Community Connection partners, Digital Inclusion/Equity advocates and community leaders.
I want to socialize with those working in Salt Lake City, serving populations that are susceptible to internet adoption barriers, such as cost, speed choices, and overall availability. Google Fiber is working hard to connect Salt Lake City to a fiber optic network that brings fast, reliable internet to the home. I am excited to let you, our local leaders and DI advocates, know about and help us inform qualified households that a Google Fiber N100 (Neighborhood 100) product has been released in areas of Salt Lake City where internet adoption is lower. This product is affordable at $20 monthly subscription, and connects the customer to a 100 meg internet connection (symmetrical, up and down). The N100 has two primary qualifications, the household must self qualify as being a household income of $40,000 or less AND be a Google Fiber sign up eligible household within an area identified by the FCC and Census Data as having a measurable amount of residents NOT connected to the internet.
We encourage residents looking for an affordable product, where Google Fiber is offered, to see if they qualify for the N100 product to visit: https://fiber.google.com/neighborhood100/

We are working on a neighborhood-wide planning project to develop a community-driven vision for Glendale. This document will be called the One Glendale Plan and will cover a variety of topics: sustainability, transportation, Jordan River, parks and open space, community identity and public art, and other topics that arise through community input.
Help us create a plan that works for ALL Glendale residents by taking the One Glendale Plan survey today:

Today the Glendale Community Council released a report with findings from an on-site visioning exercise held at the Raging Waters property on October 31, 2020. The event was designed to solicit feedback from the community regarding the future of the Raging Waters site.
Overview: Closed since 2018, the pools leak, much of the equipment is broken and unsafe, or no longer meet engineering codes. Vandalism and operator abandonment have created additional problems, such as fires, stripped electrical wiring, and equipment theft. The park’s condition leaves Salt Lake City wrestling with the difficult question of what to do next.
The Raging Waters site presents an especially important opportunity for the Glendale neighborhood and residents are passionate and invested in the future of its development.
The report is designed to provide feedback to the Salt Lake City Council and Mayor as they discuss the future of the site.
You may submit updates for publication to our Chair Turner Bitton at email@example.com.
