- Things are quiet at Boulder Ventures project is because owner has fired Accent Construction and brought in Big D to take over the project. They are doing research before giving revised completion date. It is currently 75-80% done. This puts a hold on the McClelland St improvements. All commitments will be honored.

- Wilmington gas line work is on the last stage of work. All should be wrapped up by end of summer.
- Hawk Light installations – not done yet but should be done by the end of August. Delay is caused delayed parts coming out of the mid-west (flooding).

Parts are still undecided – taking public input via survey. One is a wide multi-use path through the “gully.” Another is the Parley’s Canyon Blvd. Intersection.
Post cards were mailed to residents within ¼ mile. Survey closes on August 16th, 2019. The survey can be found at www.Slc.gov/mystreet or email comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Construction would begin in early spring and would have to stop in October due to cold temperatures.
Opened floor to questions from the public. Much concern about the safety of the “gully” crosswalks because they are blind and people have almost been hit.
