Department of Community and Neighborhoods
Welcome to the Department of Community & Neighborhoods
CAN 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. CAN 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 CAN Department is made up of seven divisions: Building Services, Engineering, Housing and Neighborhood Development, Planning and Transportation. We have a hand in everything from public art to public way improvements.
CAN also houses the Civic Engagement Team, whose role it is to help city staff and officials facilitate better involvement and city-to-stakeholder dialogue.
