Important Things to know about Urban Livability


Our goal is to work with residents and business owners to keep South Salt Lake clean, safe and beautiful. Please call our department if you have questions or need assistance.




When first elected, Mayor Wood had a clear vision for the City of South Salt Lake. She knew that Code Enforcement and related issues were a high priority to residents and business owners. Knowing this, she pulled together several key personnel and established the Urban Livability Department. The department consisted of four Code Enforcement Officers, two Animal Service Officers – two part time Shelter Technicians, a Secretary and a Director.


This team has taken a proactive approach to known problems in the city, and is working on a daily basis to come to a reasonable conclusion. We are able to work closely with other city departments; Community Development Department, Public Works, Police Department, Fire Department, City Attorney’s Office and the Salt Lake County Health Department.




We have brought together resources to form the Community Connection Program, which has helped residents citywide. Animal Services has the 'no kill' status; we strive to place animals into good homes or rescues. Code Enforcement is willing to work with residents and business owners to come into compliance. We work closely with other departments to fix lingering health and safety issues. We are proactively addressing the abandoned properties in South Salt Lake to keep property values from declining due to neighborhood deterioration.
