NEW FIBER TECHNOLOGY BEING INSTALLED IN MILLCREEK STREETS


MILLCREEK. Some residents and businesses in Millcreek will have access soon to updated internet, television, and telephone technology currently being installed in Millcreek streets.

Comcast is updating its infrastructure in various parts of Millcreek to add fiber optic cable and new delivery nodes. This is intended to increase the speed and reliability of its service. 

FiberTel has been installing conduits this week in the public utility easements along 23rd East from Heritage Drive south to 39th South. They drill underground with an auger, to which the conduit is attached (and thereby pulled through at the same time). Installation of cable in the conduit will quickly follow, and we'll begin to see new "doghouse" nodes pop up in park strips. Below are photos of what a "doghouse" node near you may look like. We will also see crews working on power poles and overhead lines, placing new aerial nodes close to power poles. The old nodes are silver, the new ones will be white.

The new services will be available as soon as work is completed in each area.
If you are a Comcast customer, you may have to grimace through a day or so of spotty services while you’re getting connected to the new infrastructure. Call Comcast, not the City, to complain!

As of this week, the City has issued permits for street cuts on Honeycut, Upland, 3610 East and 23rd East. Street cut permits won't be necessary for most of the work, as the majority is being accomplished in park strips. Thus, we can't tell you exactly where the infrastructure upgrades will be installed. We are told that the plan is to snake through Millcreek going roughly east to west, with all work in Millcreek completed by this fall.

If you are impacted the construction, you should have a notice delivered to your door before work begins. If you have questions or concerns, you can call FiberTel at 801-489-0659. Or you can contact Rita Lund at rslund@millcreek.utah.gov or (801) 214-2707.

For those of us who don't know what fiber optic cable is or how it works, click here for a basic explanation by the Fiber Optic Association, Inc. From there, you can jump off into their more than 1,000 pages of explanation!

Noises Off, by Michael Frayn

& 10-min Play Festival
Feb 8, 9, 10, and 12 @ 7:00pm
Skyline Stage
3251 E 3760 S SLC, UT 84109
Adults $9 Students $7
MILLCREEK. Called “the funniest farce ever written,” Noises Off, presented tongiht and this weekend by the Skyline Drama Club, presents a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing’s On. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play. 

Skyline Drama is also proud to present a series of 10-minute farces which will open the show each evening. Two different plays will be presented each night. Click here for full details.

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!


MILLCREEK. St. Mark's Hospital is having a "Heart Health Fair" later this month because February is National Heart month.

Stop by the hospital for free blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol and BMI testing. Plus you can get trained to give CPR. Cool, huh? Even more plus, you can get lectured by a cardiologist on how to prevent heart failure, and the available options if you get it anyway.

The testing and training will take place on on Tuesday, February 20th, from 10 AM to noon in the main lobby and from 4-6 PM on the second floor of the Women's Pavilion. Dr. Poorna Nalabothu will give her presentation from 6-7 PM. For more information, click here or call 801-268-7940  

Trees vs. Trucks


MILLCREEK. We live in a beautiful community, chock-full of mature trees and landscaping. We all need to help keep our community beautiful. Low-hanging branches and other landscaping is often broken by the big trucks that frequent most of our neighborhoods.

Millcreek Ord. 14.12.050 Landscaping Overhanging Street Pavement requires that trees and landscaping overhanging the street be trimmed to a height no greater than 13.5 feet above the pavement. This will help your trees stay healthy and the trucks unscathed.

Given recent warm weather, now is actually a perfect time to do your trimming. 

The Wasatch Front Waste & Recycling annual Customer Satisfaction Survey is currently underway. They want to hear from you. Click here to complete the survey.

Shining the Light

on Solar

Tuesday, February 20th
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
2266 E Evergreen Ave, Millcreek
MILLCREEK. Are you sick of those daily phone calls from people trying to sell you solar panels? At the same time, do you have questions about solar power and what it might do for your power bill or for the value of your house? Come to the community center on February 20th to learn about solar in a non-sales environment.

Millcreek resident B.J. Christianson is an educator who teaches real estate agents how to manage solar in a home transaction. He says that his non-profit has developed "a lot of great information that would be beneficial to any homeowner, especially those already have, or have considered adding solar to their homes." In his seminar, you can find out about the basics of rooftop solar power, along with the benefits and possible challenges.

See you there! (Talk to your legislator about those daily phone calls.)
