Millcreek is growing.

Population growth since 2010 has increased by 2% to a total of 63,380 residents which is the reason why redistricting is necessary as dictated by law to equalize the number of people in each district.

The Utah Legislature recently approved new congressional districts following which the Millcreek City Council will adapt to the change within six months. Gov. Spencer Cox signed the new state legislation Nov. 16, 2021.

Proposed changes are open to public review and further modifications to equalize populations, address logistics, and keep current council members representing the residents who chose them. The proposed maps have been prepared by city staff based on the guidance of the Utah Independent Redistricting Commission.

Districts 1 and 2 will be downsizing in geographical terms because they have the most demonstrated population growth. The Redistricting Interactive Story Map can be found online at Feedback can be submitted through a survey by scanning the bottom QR code[LL2]  in Redistricting 05, emailing [email protected] or at

The Millcreek Map Gallery online was put together by Brian Busch, GIS specialist, and is organized by Overview, Proposals, Interactive Data Experience, and Feedback and Public Comment.

The new City Council district boundaries will be established for the next 10 years. Commentary and other community input will be open at the beginning of every city council meeting opened for initiation by Mayor Jeff Silvestrini until May 9, when the council will finalize the best map.
