The developers behind the Olympia Hills project have announced two open houses and have invited members of the public to attend to learn more about their revised project proposal and "convey any comments they might have about the future community."

Open houses will be held on March 13 (Bastian Elementary) and 14 (Golden Fields Elementary), from 6-7:30 p.m. Residents who have questions or concerns about the project are encouraged to attend.

The Olympia Hills project area lies to the west of Herriman, and was first proposed last year prior to being vetoed by the county mayor. Click here to read the Riverton City Council's initial statement in opposition to the project.
Sign up for the Riverton Half Marathon on Saturday, March 30, to race Mayor Staggs! Last year, Mayor Staggs personally donated $5 for every runner who bested him to Kauri Sue Hamilton School and has pledged to do the same this year. Don’t worry, he clocks an average 10-minute 30-second mile and over 250 runners bested him last year.

Kauri Sue Hamilton School, located in Riverton, is a school for students with significant disabilities. The school serves students from communities within Jordan School District.

Runners are encouraged to register soon for the Half Marathon and work to best Mayor Staggs on the day of the race!

**NOTE: This will be a personal donation by Mayor Trent Staggs, with no public monies being used.

Riverton City will begin maintenance on the secondary water system on March 15. To ensure your irrigation system is not damaged and that your property is not flooded, secondary water connection valves should be turned off prior to that date.

Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective on one of America's greatest art forms.

QPR is to suicide what CPR is to cardiac arrest. If enough people in the community are trained to recognize the signs of suicide and intervene appropriately, we can reduce the number of suicide deaths in our youth.

QPR training is open to anyone interested. All community members who interact with youth on a regular basis are encouraged to attend.

Healthy Riverton provides the training for free and can train specific groups.
