Background

Elected officials from Millcreek and Salt Lake City, including Salt Lake City Council Members and the Mayor, have been meeting over the past several months to discuss possible boundary adjustment options between the two cities. These negotiations are the most recent in a series of discussions between the two cities regarding their mutual boundary in the Highland Drive / 1300 East area. The Council authorized a subcommittee of its members to conduct negotiations prior to discussing the issue during their September 3, 2019 work session.

Current Proposal

The current proposal incorporates the area bounded by 1300 East, Highland Drive, Miller Avenue and Woodland Avenue, and a roundabout at approximately 2300 East and 2700 South into Millcreek (see maps below). Both parties have agreed that this and any future potential boundary adjustments will not include the area known as Brickyard Plaza.


Millcreek will compensate the City an agreed-upon amount of tax revenue in exchange for the boundary adjustment. The draft interlocal agreement incorporates this compensation arrangement and expectations going forward.


Proposal timeline:

  • Council will discuss the item during their September 3, 2019 work session.
  • Council will consider adopting a resolution authorizing an interlocal agreement between Salt Lake City and Millcreek on September 17, 2019. The resolution would outline the process of the proposal up to this point and outline future expectations, and initiate the state boundary adjustment process.
  • Council will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, November 19, 2019 at 7 p.m. on the boundary adjustment proposal.
  • Council may take action on an ordinance approving the boundary adjustment on Tuesday, December 3, 2019.
