JUNE 2022


Holladay Arts By Councilmember Paul Fotheringham – District 3 The Arts are alive and well in Holladay, thanks to the Holladay Arts Council. Despite the entire world suffering through over 2 years of a pandemic blizzard, Holladay Arts has continued to find ways to accomplish its mission to “inspire, engage and unify the community through the arts.” From the very beginning of these weird times, when schools, offices, restaurants, and event venues were shut down, the arts council didn’t just “tie the boat to the dock and wait out the storm.” Instead, Holladay Arts served up a socially distanced “stay near your car” concert series in a local church parking lot. It was about the only fun anyone in Holladay was able to enjoy in the summer of 2020. And perhaps the happiest folks at the concerts were members of the bands! Joe Muscolino, leader of the band that sports his name and whose band opened the concert series, had never been so happy and delighted to blow his horn again for a live audience. As a member of Holladay’s City Council, it is my honor and a privilege to serve as the City Council liaison to Holladay Arts, led by its executive director Sheryl Gillilan. Sheryl anchors a team of committed Holladay citizen volunteers who are dedicated to making our corner of the world more beautiful and connected through the arts. So far this year, despite the ongoing threat of Greek-lettered dangers, Holladay Arts has hosted: ● Paul Draper “Virtual” Magic Show ● “Tiny Art” Show ● Fine Arts Exhibit and Sale ● Holladay Reflections in Dance Concert Summer is “prime time” for arts council events. Coming up in June, a children’s theater production, and starting July 9th at 8 pm, the summer concert series begins with Changing Lanes, followed every Saturday night with evening concerts through the end of August. The grand finale on August 27th will mark the return of the Blue Moon Festival, a five-hour arts and music extravaganza. All this and more, are brought to our community by Holladay Arts! Friends, we in Holladay are blessed in many ways. Despite the global, national, and even local storms of conflict and woe that rage all around us, Holladay seems a relative oasis. For me, much of that oasis is provided by the arts. We may yet, as a community, confront more challenges brought on by these weird times. It will be the arts that will help us re-center ourselves and re-discover our common humanity. It will be the arts that remind us of and re-connect us to the beautiful parts of our existence on this rock we all live on. Holladay Arts is honored to provide an avenue for you to re-center, re-discover, and re-connect through the arts.

Holladay’s First Nationally Recognized Historic District On April 11th the National Park Service officially listed the PARADE OF HOMES LAKEWOOD SITE on the National Register of Historic Places. West of the Cottonwood Club, most of the homes in the neighborhood were built for the 1955 Parade of Homes. The neighborhood features a wide variety of progressive architectural styles for 1955, including mid-century modern, chalet-modern, and ranch. A number of the homes feature the designs of Stephen McDonald, one of Utah’s most important modernist architects. Listing on the National Register is intended to encourage preservation as well as provide recognition of a property’s significance. A major benefit of listing on the National Register is the availability of TAX CREDITS for qualified restoration work. If you are interested in recognizing your property’s historical significance or you have photos of historic buildings in Holladay, please contact the Holladay Historical Commission at history@cityofholladay.com. Liane Stillman launches Historic Speaker Series Thanks to Liane Stillman, City of Holladay’s first mayor, who launched the Holladay Historic Speaker Series on May 16th. Stillman recounted her journey as an interested citizen persevering on the path to City incorporation to the joys of executing a collective city vision as Mayor.

Poets with Purpose Holladay Tree Committee The City of Holladay’s gala Arbor Day Celebration on April 29th would have been incomplete without a thoughtful, poetic tribute to trees. Olympus Junior High Poetry Contest Winners, 7th-grader Millie Holt, and 6th-grader Elise Hansen, rose to the occasion and shared their lyrical works of heart with the captivated audience gathered at the Outdoor Classroom. “TREES”

by Millie Holt

Trees are above my head Swaying softly Surpassing the sun-baked grass Providing shelter. The aroma Pine, willow, spruce and more Circulating Throughout the breeze. Spotless and polished air The polluted quality. Slowly disinfecting The radiology. Furnishing residence To what lies above Squirrels climbing And all of the doves.

Homes being demolished endless critters, Trees crashing down, Not an entity found.



by Elise Hansen

The trees they are so tall and oh so green Your limbs so tall they stretch up to the sky, When your leaves fall in autumn - its routine, I watch your leaves of color soar up high. Oh trees, your trunks, so sturdy and so strong, They help provide us shelter from a storm. Your roots they stretch into the ground so long, You stabilize the tree, I must inform. Oh trees we all must give you so much love. You give us many things they’re all around, And in supreme of all, you are above. Oh trees we love you, you are just profound. Oh trees I love like you can’t imagine, So much that, they’re mine - and your - true passion.

Spring Brings New Roads To Holladay City

The City of Holladay has started an asphalt overlay program to improve existing roads throughout City limits. The work includes lowering existing manholes and valves, removing the existing old asphalt layer, and installing new asphalt pavement. After the manholes and valves in the street are lowered, the milling of existing asphalt will commence. The old asphalt surface will be removed, swept, and prepared for a new lift of asphalt during this process. Shortly following the removal of old asphalt, the paving crews will install a new two-inch asphalt surface on the roadway. No traffic will be allowed until the new asphalt is compacted and cooled during this process. The utilities will be raised upon completion of the overlay to create a smooth surface. Residents will be notified before this work by flyers requesting vehicles not be parked in the roadway during working hours 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The roadways will be usable during this work except for short periods as the equipment moves through the area. The contractors are making every effort to minimize disruption with patience and consideration of the public. The new roadways will be a great addition to the neighborhoods.

Holladay Hills Update: Development at Cottonwood Mall Site Taking Shape Information Provided by the Development Partners Holladay Hills is a 58-acre mixed-use project located at the former Cottonwood Mall site, that will include living and office space, along with dining, shopping and entertainment options and a central park for gatherings. Once completed, it will offer over 600,000 square feet of commercial space - about 6 times the size of the booming Holladay Village district! Holladay Hills will also provide a variety of living options to meet the needs of singles, families and empty nesters. There will be apartments, townhomes, single family homes and condos available – in total, over 600 muchneeded residences.


Here is a summary of current and upcoming project activity: • Over two-thirds of the underground infrastructure is complete. • Curb, gutter and asphalt is scheduled to wrap-up in the summer of 2022. • Holladay Hills development will relocate power distribution lines serving the project underground. The transmission lines that are located along Memory and Arbor Lanes are part of the Rocky Mountain Power transmission network that supplies power to not only the City of Holladay, but also other communities; the transmission work is not driven by the Holladay Hills project. • Many commercial and retail tenants have signed letters of intent. As early as summer of 2022, announcements could be made regarding incoming retailers and office users that will be located in new buildings and the former Macy’s building on Block B, which is being repurposed/redesigned. • Block D is currently under construction and is anticipated to be ready for occupancy in the summer of 2023. This block will feature retail/restaurants with multi-family residential above and an interior parking garage. Purchase reservations for sixteen penthouse condos began in May 2022.
