Highland City Council Agenda Preview for Sept 15, 2020

This could be a longer meeting depending on resident input. The most interesting items on the agenda are:

  1. Preliminary plat approval for a 64.5 acre 69-lot subdivision to be known as The Hollows located at 10250 N 6531 W. There are two aspects to the development which have generated public interest. The first is preservation of wetlands in Mitchell Hollow and the second is a northbound connection to 10250 N.
  2. Whether or not to allow temporary signs (e.g. political signs) on public property.
  3. Authorization of additional CARES act spending by the city and a report of what we have spent to date.

An abbreviated meeting agenda together with my thoughts is shown below. This meeting will be held at city hall but there will be limited space because of distancing requirements. We will also stream it on our YouTube channel (click here to watch).

It was another great conversation and one that is worth watching.

Here is an email we received from Brigitte Madrian, a Highland resident and the dean BYU’s Marriott School of Business, who watched our conversation:
