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.
