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.
One of the downtown highlights of summer in Salt Lake City is the Twilight Concert Series held on Thursday evenings in July and August. The concerts present a wide range of outstanding musicians from across the country and around the world. The concerts are accompanied by the Twilight Market, and people of all ages enjoy this festival-like atmosphere with food, beverages and handmade crafts.
Salt Lake City has an extraordinary opportunity to shape and define the future of the Downtown. The project area includes multiple districts: the Central Business District; Downtown South, including the Granary; Downtown Warehouse District, including the Hub/Depot area; and the Gateway District. It is bounded by North Temple, 200 E, 900 S, and I-15.
