The City of Millcreek Wants to Annex The Brickyard from Salt Lake City

The City of Millcreek Wants to Annex The Brickyard from Salt Lake City

Many of you have heard from City Council Members, the Mayor or read in the news about an ongoing issue surrounding Salt Lake City’s Brickyard area. It is a valued and integral area that has been part of the city for more than 40 years.

Last year, Millcreek officials made informal inquiries about the area, and then promptly began suggesting that boundaries simply be moved to make it part of their new city. While we are sympathetic to the challenges of new cities, and happy to help along our city boundaries whenever possible, Millcreek escalated their proposal to legislation on Capitol Hill. The bill, running at the request of Millcreek officials, would send ripples across not only Salt Lake City, but cities across the state.

The good news is that your elected officials have been working hard to resolve the situation. After numerous meetings and informal conversations, Millcreek officials have indicated that they are re-evaluating their request of the Legislature. If it is withdrawn, we as Salt Lake City representatives have indicated a willingness to work with them on mutually beneficial actions between our cities.

To ensure that you have all the information you need regarding the issue, the following documents are linked from the list below. These and other resources are also available on this page.

This information is provided in response to questions asked by community members.  Things move quickly during the 45-day legislative session, and the issue continues to evolve as your city officials and state lawmakers work to find a mutually beneficial solution.

Thank you for all you do to make our city the crown jewel of our state.
