Welcome to the web page of the Greater Avenues Community Council.

Officially formed in 1976, but with community roots dating back years earlier, the GACC exists as a non-profit community organization with a mission to improve the quality of life for all Avenues residents, businesses, schools, hospitals and organizations.

We wish you health, happiness and success!

Let us know any concerns you have about living in the Avenues area of Salt Lake City. Our 2016 GACC Chair is Dave Alderman, who can be reached at 281-435-9080 or by email to gaccchair@slc-avenues.org.


Our annual Memory Grove Cleanup was held

on Saturday, May 14 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.

Thanks to all the volunteers who spent the morning cleaning the park, and to Salt Lake City Parks, Salt Lake City Council, LDS Hospital, Emigration and Ensign Stakes, and the Board of Directors of the Greater Avenues Community Council.

Avenues Street Fair Seeks Bands, Artists, and Vendors
Ever think all you needed was a break and you could have been the next Mick Jagger or Justin Bieber? Maybe Taylor Swift or Gwen Stefani? Or maybe your style is more YoYo Ma or Trombone Shorty?  Well, the Avenues Street Fair might be your big break, or at least a chance to play for your friends and neighbors. If you have a rock band, country band, big band, classical string quartet, jazz, folk, reggae, or a combination of all of the above; we’d love to hear from you. Bands that are selected will be listed on our advertising materials. All entertainment at the Street Fair is unpaid; however you may sell CDs or other merchandise during your performance.  To be considered, please contact Daniel Gaffin at danielgaffin@gmail.com , and provide a demo, preferably via a link to a website, YouTube video, etc.  For more information, please see our website at www.slc-avenues.org .  We will accept applications until June 17.
