The Yalecrest Neighborhood Council helps promote a safe and vibrant community in this historic neighborhood with its iconic architecture, tree-line streets and parks. We act as a forum for residents to voice their opinions about issues vital to the community and to engage in activities, projects and causes that reflect Yalecrest’s vitality.

The Yalecrest Community expresses profound grief and sadness at the tragic death of “Winnie,” a 6th grader at Bonneville Elementary School, who was struck and killed in a crosswalk yesterday on 2100 South and 1300 East while heading home from school. A candlelight vigil will be held in her honor Saturday, December 3 at Tracy Aviary at 9 p.m. A GoFundMe account has also been set up to help with funeral expenses.

Share Your Opinions

Salt Lake City wants to hear from residents about these critical issues:

Access the survey here or send written comments to Nick Norris, Planning Director. Attend, speak or watch the public hearing on Wednesday, Dec. 14 at 5:30 p.m.before the Planning Commission. Read the Homeless Shelter Amendments here.
  • Read an update on the city’s Affordable Housing Incentive plan  that will impact Yalecrest and neighborhoods across the city — allowing developers and owners to demolish single family homes and replace them with higher density housing like fourplexes, cottages, row houses or townhomes. Get updates about the community workgroup that has been meeting with city officials. The City is expected to push the incentive forward in January, 2023.
  • Proposed changes to SLC’s landscaping codes that would give rebates to city residents who replace sod with water-friendly vegetation and affect new construction. Deadline to comment: December 13. Contact Nick Norris, Planning Director.

Join the “Friends of Miller Park

In the 1980s, Yalecrest formed the Miller Park Committee, a citizens oversight group. Based on comments as well as suggestions received from Yalecrest residents, the YNC is re-creating the spirit of that early group and formed the  “Friends of Miller Park.”  The committee is charged with maintaining the historical and environmental integrity of Miller Bird Refuge and Nature Park. This is accomplished through public awareness, occasional clean-up projects, bird watching, vegetation and tree plantings, and educational outings in the park.
