IS DOWNTOWN SALT LAKE CITY OVERBUILT WITH RENTAL UNITS?

benworth-chapman-apartments-in-salt-lake-city
Downtown Salt Lake City is seeing an unprecedented boom in apartment development, according to a new study released by the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute.

In 2010, after 100 years of development, the number of downtown rental units in Salt Lake City totaled 5,200. By 2020, that number is expected to double to 10,000 units and the downtown population will grow to an estimated 20,000, about the same size as the population of Payson or Brigham City. For the purpose of the study, downtown includes the area from approximately 700 East to 700 West and from 400 South to North Temple, or roughly 1.65 square miles.

NEW NONPROFIT MAILING GUIDELINES

nonprofit-mailing-guidelines
Users of the Nonprofit Standard Mail service are advised by the U.S. Postal Service to more clearly identify their nonprofit organization on all items mailed at this rate.

All mailing pieces sent from campus using nonprofit permit 1529 must have ‘The University of Utah’ displayed in a prominent location on the package or envelope. The USPS requires that the return address begin with, ‘The University of Utah’, followed by the sender’s name and a campus address. To prevent confusion, delay or higher postage rates, please ensure that the university name is easily identifiable and avoid abbreviations such as ‘U of U’.

Help the university keep this valuable resource by complying with USPS guidelines on nonprofit mailings. Questions regarding nonprofit permits and other mailing services may be directed to Kim Hansen at 801-581- 7212. Questions regarding the printing of mail items may be directed to 801-581-6171.
