Community and Economic Development Department

Welcome to the Salt Lake City Community and Economic Development Department (CED)

CED is here to guide and promote the physical and economic development of Salt Lake City. Our goal is to provide leadership, policies and programs that will promote strong, vibrant neighborhoods and communities, and to proactively encourage the positive and orderly growth and development of the City. CED advocates incorporation of the diverse interests of our community to reduce barriers and enhance leadership capacity to continue to improve the quality of life for all who live, work and play here. 

The CED Department is made up of seven divisions: Arts Council, Building Services, Economic Development, Engineering, Housing and Neighborhood Development, Planning and Transportation.  We have a hand in everything from public art to public way improvements.
