boMillcreek City’s boundaries stretch from the Jordan River west of I-15 to the Forest Service’s property in the eastern foothills. On this map, Millcreek is the tan area contained within the purple lines. A detailed map of the four Millcreek City Council district boundaries can be found here.
The tan areas outside the purple lines were part of our former Millcreek Township. The County excluded those areas when it drew our new City’s boundaries. Salt Lake City owns Parleys Historic Nature Park (aka the “dog park”) and annexed it away. Then the County proposed using the private property lines in our developed eastern neighborhoods as the eastern boundary. But Jeff successfully persuaded them to extend the eastern boundary up the foothills to the Forest Service land. He convinced them that “‘Anything built between our neighborhood and the Forest Service boundary is in our neighborhood.'” Salt Lake County Draws Some Flexible Boundaries, Salt Lake Tribune, 5/17/15.
Cities Surrounding Millcreek’s Boundaries:
Salt Lake City (aqua) is to the north of Millcreek, with the Brickyard awkwardly jutting into the northwest part. Salt Lake City’s 1978 annexation of the Brickyard was an impetus for Millcreek’s boundary protection concerns.
South Salt Lake City (pink) is to the northwest of Millcreek. West Valley City (brown) and Taylorsville (cream) touch Millcreek at its westernmost points.
Murray (green) and Holladay (gray) are to the South. A small island of unincorporated Salt Lake County (white), along Van Winkle near 1300 East, is surrounded by Millcreek, Murray, and Holladay.
