The Online Home of SLC’s East Bench Neighborhood

Welcome to the official online home of the East Bench Community Council district in Salt Lake City, Utah. Our boundaries include the homes east of Foothill Drive to the boundaries of the Wasatch National Forest and from Parley’s Canyon on the south to Sherwood Drive on the north.

We invite residents to join where neighbors are very active and communicative.

Our monthly public East Bench Community Council meetings take place on the 3rd Wednesday of each month (except July and December) at 7pm MT and are conducted via Zoom with the Zoom Meeting App at

Each month we invite a representative from the SLC Mayor’s office, our elected SLC Council member representative from District 6, who currently is Dan Dugan, and a representative from the SLC Police Department to attend the meeting and provide official reports, update residents on important developments affecting our community, answer questions and give feedback. We typically have a special guest each month who presents on a topic we believe is of interest to our residents.  In addition, if there is a particular development proposal, zoning change request or proposed governmental initiative impacting our neighborhood, we discuss the matter and solicit input from our neighbors.
