MIDVALLEY CONNECTOR

The process involving the proposed Midvalley Connector Bus Rapid Transit project in Taylorsville is moving forward. The Draft Environmental Study Report is complete; public comment on it was taken through the end of December. A public open house also was held.

The proposed project extends along Murray, Taylorsville and West Valley City. The proposal includes a bus rapid transit line that travels from Murray Central station, through Taylorsville with connection at Salt Lake Community College on Redwood Road, to West Valley Central station. It is approximately seven miles in length with 15 proposed stations. The project includes approximately 1.4 miles of center-running exclusive bus lane along 4700 South. With the conclusion of the public comment period, UTA will now process all comments received and prepare the Final Environmental Study Report, anticipated to begin in the spring.

EMERGENCY COMMUNICATION

With recent events including the recent earthquake near Bluffdale, you may be wondering how Taylorsville City would get information out to you in an emergency. There are a couple of emergency communication systems you should be aware of:

First, the federal IPAWS system (Integrated Public Awareness and Warning System) helps us send out notifications to cell phones, computers, radio and television. It uses cell towers to distribute information to everyone within the area of that tower. See more here: https://www.fema.gov/media-library/assets/videos/77356

Coordinating with VECC (Valley Emergency Communications Center), we also have the reverse 911 option that allows us to reach those who sign up. The key is that you need to sign up if you want alerts to go to your cell phone. Here is more information on how to do that: http://www.vecc9-1-1.com/voip-registration/ (Landlines are automatically added to the system).

Of course, we are also active on Social Media, including FB @ TaylorsvilleCity; Twitter @ TvilleUT; and Instagram @ taylorsvillecity, and will use this website as well as coordination with local media outlets to help us get vital messages out to the community.

Also, don't miss the Great Utah Shakeout on April 18 at 10:15 a.m. Find more information here.

It's always good to plan ahead!
