Welcome 2017 and Welcome SNOW! Kudos to all the hearty Yalecrester’s who are keeping our sidewalks safe by shoveling and blowing off the snow during this exceptional season.

A special shout out to Mary Cook who for years has generously helped her neighbors on both 1400 East and Sunnyside Avenue remove side-walk snow. Mary is first out in the morning with her snow blower, quickly clearing the way for her neighbors and making sure that Salt Lake City East High School students who walk have a safe path along Sunnyside Avenue. Thank you Mary for being that neighbor who continues to make our Yalecrest neighborhood a safe, welcoming and active place.

As a quick reminder, Salt Lake City snow removal ordinance states that the owner or occupant of a property must remove snow and ice from their whole sidewalk adjacent to their property within 24 hours after a storm, there may be some neighbors who are unable or unaware of the ordinance.

Clear sidewalks in our neighborhood:

  •  Assure that students have safe routes to and from schools
  • Allow residents of all ages and abilities, especially those who do not drive, to continue to walk and bike safely to transit, grocery stores and recreation.
  • Give us a the choice to help keep our air cleaner by walk or bike, instead of driving a car

When sidewalks are not cleared of snow, people will walk in the street and are at great risk of being hit by an automobile. If you experience sidewalks where snow removal is chronically ignored, please call Salt Lake City Civil Enforcement at 801-535-7225 to report a violation. Snow removal violations range from $50 - $200.

Chinese New Year – January 28, 2017

Year of the Rooster: A festival for family and a time for families to be together. Wherever they are, people come home to celebrate the festival with their families. The main traditional celebrations of the festival includes eating reunion dinner with family, giving red envelopes, firecrackers, new clothes, and decorations.  
The New Year's Eve dinner is called "reunion dinner", and is believed to be the most important meal of the year. Big families of several generations sit around round tables and enjoy the food and time together.

Clean Air Indoors Matters
Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer deaths among nonsmokers in America and claims the lives of about 21,000 Americans each year. You can’t see, smell or taste radon, but it could be present at a dangerous level in your home.
You can protect your health and those living in your home, including pets, by testing your home for radon. Schools and other buildings should be tested for radon too. (
Radon test kits are available at home centers, hardware stores, and a limited number of kits free from the Utah Department of Environmental Quality. There is no charge for the test analysis.   
Exposure to radon is a preventable health risk and testing radon levels in your home can help prevent unnecessary exposure.  If a high radon level is detected in your home, you can take steps to fix the problem to protect yourself and your family.
