Community councils have been an important part of Millcreek for many decades. Millcreek has four: Millcreek Community Council (MCC), East Mill Creek Community Council (EMCCC), Canyon Rim Citizens Association (CRCA), and Mt. Olympus Community Council (MOCC).
Comprised of elected representatives, the community councils were initially formed to inform and advise the Salt Lake County Council on land use applications, as well as neighborhood needs and concerns. Over the years, their role expanded into developing and sponsoring community events, such as Venture Out, movie nights, the Prepare Fair, and the annual Luau held in Big Cottonwood Park.
Now that Millcreek is a city, the community councils will continue to be invaluable to the City Council and to the residents of Millcreek. Check out your local meeting. Here is a list of contacts, as well as when and where each council meets on a monthly basis:
East Mill Creek Community Council, Millcreek Community Center, 2266 E. Evergreen Ave., 1st Thursday, 6:30 p.m.; Nancy Carlson-Gotts, Chair, firstname.lastname@example.org
