MAYOR’S MESSAGE I’ve received a number of inquiries regarding Holladay Hills, formerly The Cottonwood Mall. The developers provided the following press release: With Block D under construction and well over half of the project infrastructure complete, Holladay Hills will really start taking shape in the coming year. Block D includes living and office space, dining, shopping, entertainment options and a central park gathering area. We anticipate occupancy in the summer of 2023. Two-thirds of the underground infrastructure for the 58-acre project area is now complete. Curb, gutter and asphalt are scheduled to be installed in the spring of 2022. Six half-acre lots at the southern end of Holladay Hills will act as a buffer between the residents to the east of the development. They will be accessed from Arbor and Memory Lane and available for sale to individual lot owners. Adjacent to these lots, another 38 townhomes will start being built in spring of 2022. Commercial and retail interest is high, with many letters of intent having already been signed. As early as spring of 2022 announcements could be made regarding incoming retailers that will locate in new buildings, or in the former Macy’s building that will be re-purposed. Woodbury Corporation, Millrock Capital, LLC and Ball Ventures are the developers of Holladay Hills. Nelsen Partners is the architect of the master plan with Beecher and Walker Architects the lead for Block D. Jacobsen Construction is the contractor.

Congratulations to Paul Fotheringham, re-elected to represent Council District 3 and Ty Brewer, selected by District 1 residents to replace outgoing Council Representative, Sabrina Petersen. Sabrina proudly served the residents of her district for 12 years. She was integral in transforming Holladay in to what it is today. Remember the blighted downtown area, a lack of commercial/retail base, aging schools and infrastructure and a general lack of a “sense of place”? Sabrina has been directly involved with: • Completion of the improvements to City Hall Park, to include: the gazebo, bathrooms, renovated stone bleachers, new pavilion, pickle ball and basketball courts, playground facility, and a new skate park that is open. • Re-build of Olympus High School. • Re-development of the Holladay downtown area. • Re-development of the gravel pit on the south end of the city in to the Millrock Commercial development. • Preservation, protection and construction of Knudsen Park and The Cotton Bottom, establishing a south node entry to the city. • Construction of Unified Fire Station #104 These are just a few of the more noticeable changes during her tenure. Her vision and leadership helped shepherd Holladay in to the 21st century while at the same time preserving the unique character of our city. We thank her and her family for their dedicated service to the City of Holladay and wish them well as they transition to a new and exciting phase in their life. With Gratitude, —Rob Dahle, Mayor

Thank You Sabrina Petersen Sabrina Petersen began serving on the Holladay City Council in January of 2010. Over the last 12 years, Sabrina worked tirelessly to enhance the sense of community and quality of life in Holladay. Sabrina’s vision as well as attention to detail resulted in beautiful updates to our City. From Holladay Village Plaza, to her work on the thoughtful design of the Holladay Fire Station, and Holladay City Park’s swings and trellis, sport courts and skatepark, Sabrina’s dedicated service will be visible for a long time to come. We sincerely thank you Sabrina for your service to Holladay residents over the last 12 years.

The Holladay Tree Committee: WHO, WHAT, WHY? By Wendy Frank WHO are we? Established by the Holladay City Council, the Tree Committee is a committee of seven City Manager appointed members, with the advice and consent of the Council joined by several non-voting members who participate in our events and contribute valuable ideas. Certified Arborist Travis Jones is the Chairperson. Our common threads are our love and appreciation for trees, and passion for protecting and preserving them while promoting a sustainable urban forest. WHAT do we do? We meet the first Thursday of each month at 4:00 P.M. in Holladay City Hall. In addition to being significant contributors and supporting the passage of two major tree ordinances, the Committee holds an Arbor Day Celebration in April, leads a Tree Giveaway event, sponsors a Tree Voucher Program, organizes on-site work projects (pruning, cleaning up trees, etc.) and encourages the maintenance and preservation of the City’s tree canopy. WHY do we do it? We value the power of trees to filter pollutants from the air, mitigate summer heat, provide shade from solar radiation, prevent soil erosion, reduce noise, provide shelter for birds and other animals, beautify our city, increase property values— even help reduce heart rate, blood pressure, and stress levels. We do it because Holladay’s trees are vulnerable, invaluable, and deserving recipients of our unshakeable and steadfast stewardship.
