COUNCIL: September 3 Council Meeting Recap

At today’s meeting, the Council:

  • received a briefing about a proposal to adjust the boundaries between Salt Lake City and the City of Millcreek. Currently, a small area bounded by 1300 East Street, Highland Drive, Miller Avenue and Woodland Avenue would become part of the Millcreek, as well as a roundabout located at approximately 2300 East and 2700 South. Both parties have agreed that this and any future potential boundary adjustments will not include the area known as “Brickyard Plaza.” Elected officials from Millcreek and Salt Lake City, including the Council and the Mayor, have been meeting over the past several months to discuss possible boundary adjustment options between the two cities. This begins a months-long public boundary adjustment process governed by State law, including a public hearing on November 17th at 7 p.m. The City of Millcreek will also hold a public hearing in November.
