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 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.


As part of its Purge the Spurge event on May 7, Salt Lake City Open Space is having a contest between community councils.
