Culture

The neighborhood is one of the most religiously and ethnically diverse areas of Utah From the rich stories of elderly German couples who escaped Nazi Germany, to the festive Latin celebrations, the neighborhood is steeped in culture. The most recent data shows residents in the neighborhood are 53% Caucasian/European 37% Hispanic 4% African American and 2% Polynesian and 4% other/unspecified. This information supports a trend seen in the real estate industry of young professionals of primarily European descent purchasing homes in the area. The same trend was observed in nearby Sugarhouse in the late 1990s as individuals not willing to commute for long hours sought out affordable housing near the Salt Lake's city center.

Walkable Neighborhood

Rose Park benefits from an active community council. The Rose Park Community Council is made up of an elected body of volunteers who serve the interests of Rose Park and the community. The purpose of this council is to provide community input and information to various city departments. Community councils are encouraged to make recommendations to the city on all matters affecting the city or each organization's particular community or neighborhood. The council holds a monthly meeting, to which the public is encouraged to attend, the first Wednesday of each month, at 6:30pm, in the Day Riverside Library (located at 1105 W. 1000 North).

What We Do

NeighborWorks® Salt Lake, a private non-profit 501(c)(3), opened its doors in 1977 with the mission of revitalizing neighborhoods and creating affordable housing by providing dynamic and creative leadership through partnerships with residents, youth, businesses, and government entities.

The NeighborWorks® Salt Lake vision statement of “Rebuilding Neighborhoods…One Block at a Time” has been visibly and successfully demonstrated in its target neighborhoods, including a large geographic area on Salt Lake City’s west side running from 1000 North to 1700 South, and from 300 West to Redwood Road. These boundaries include all or a portion of the Fairpark, Guadalupe, Rose Park, Glendale, Poplar Grove, and West Capital Hill neighborhoods.

In addition to our Salt Lake City Area, Murray City has taken an important step in addressing housing needs identified in the Housing Market Analysis adopted by the City Council in the spring of 2009 by partnering with NeighborWorks® Salt Lake. NeighborWorks® Salt Lake has established a Murray office to work in collaboration with the City and Redevelopment Agency of Murray to provide additional housing services to the residents of Murray and to facilitate neighborhood revitalization in its Murray target neighborhoods.

NeighborWorks® Salt Lake has a proven track record of visible positive results in its target neighborhoods. We hope you will consider NeighborWorks® Salt Lake as a housing and neighborhood resource, and contact us with questions or additional information on our programs.
