Mapleton City Emergency Preparedness
Each year we are faced with the potential for flooding caused by the spring thaw. Many parts of the country received large accumulations of snow this winter. As the weather warms, the combination of melting snow and anticipated springtime rainfall can cause potential flooding in towns and communities throughout the nation.
As part of my Mayor’s Message last month, I addressed ideas on how each of you can prepare for potential flooding and how we as a City are closely monitoring the situation and making appropriate plans for any possible peak conditions. Within the last few months I have instructed City staff to monitor potential flooding conditions. So far we are in good shape but we are ready just in case and we encourage you as a citizen to do the same.

In the November newsletter we invited the public to participate in a visual preference survey related to future commercial development along Highway 89. The purpose of the survey was to receive input regarding preferred architectural design characteristics such as building styles, heights, materials, and other site details. The survey was open until the end of November and was taken by a few hundred people that provided valuable input. Attached below is a summary of the survey results. After the survey completed, city staff developed some draft design standards that would apply to new commercial development and presented those at a public open house on January 31st. The public response was primarily positive. A copy of the standards will be posted here in the next few weeks. For questions or comments regarding this project, please contact Sean Conroy at 801-806-9101 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
