Mayor Cherie Wood
As South Salt Lake’s Mayor, I am committed to investing in the future of our small city with big opportunities. Many developers, businesses, and investors are currently looking for opportunities in our new downtown and neighborhoods, and they know we are the place to be! Still, as our population increases, we need to invest in our public works and infrastructure to meet the demand and to become a modern hub for business and development.
We are also investing in our community’s youth — who represent the future of our City. Through Promise South Salt Lake and our network of community centers, our youngest residents can meet lifelong friends, advance their education, and explore valuable career paths.
And above all, we are investing in our own community and lives. As we expand and improve our public parks and trails, add bike lanes to our streets, and plant trees throughout our yards and green spaces, we are building an inviting and safe home for both longtime residents and new additions to our community.
Thank you for being a part of our City on the Move!
Invest in People
An additional level of transparency and accountability has been added to South Salt Lake by means of a Civilian Review Board (CRB). The approved City Ordinance No. 2021-10 was signed on June 24, 2021. The CRB will review certain actions of SSLPD officers and encourage further community engagement in the policing efforts of the City. Find out how you can get involved and receive updates about the CRB by going here.
Build Great Neighborhoods
The SSL Department of Neighborhoods was created in 2021 in response to many resident comments stating that safe, clean, and fun neighborhoods were their priority. This new department functions to provide a variety of services with the sole purpose of creating better neighborhoods.
