The Wasatch County Council meets 3 p.m. on Wednesday to tackle an agenda including Second Amendment rights, mental health awareness and a real estate development nearly a decade in the making.


After an update from the health department and a resolution declaring May to be Mental Health Awareness Month, debate on a proposal to declare Wasatch County as a Second Amendment “sanctuary county” will take place at 5:30 p.m. with public comment set for 6 p.m. Councilor Kendall Crittenden will lead both discussions.


The second item on the public hearing is the preliminary subdivision approval for Mill Creek Meadows, a proposed residential subdivision consisting of 13 lots on nearly 14 acres located at 2020 S 1200 E (Mill Road).


Next, Wasatch County Planning Director Doug Smith will present Ordinance 2101 amending hard-surface trail requirements. 


Smith also wants the council to decide on the proposed changes to the Crossings at Lake Creek. The Lake Creek preliminary plan received entitlements under a 1997 ordinance. The development would allow 538 units on 336 acres and was granted prior approval in November of 2002. The approval includes open space and other amenities. 


The housing approvals encompass cottage home lots, custom homes, luxury view estates and equestrian home lots. The developer has asked the planning department to approve changes to the original plan.


If the council determines the changes to be significant, the developer would go through an amendment process.
